Apparently there are people that are huffy because Homer, Herodotus, Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, Demosthenes, Cicero & Virgil are on the Columbia library building.
You see, they’re all MALE. Of course, they’re not up there because they’re male, they’re up there because they’re some of the greatest thinkers and authors in human history.
If you’re wondering if there are any women that have made intellectual contributions that measure up to any of the men on that list, the honest answer is “no.”
But since it’s 2019, people can’t admit that; so they have to pretend that having all these great men on there is a terrible slight to women.
