They're just more intelligent. All the greatest literary works in history were written by women.

>>7544611
They're all reading different books, and they don't have nearly enough alcohol. Not literary/10.

Women cluster around the middle of the bell curve while men occupy the extreme ends. This is true in basically every arena.

I'm not sure if it's biological or symptomatic of the way society mollycoddles women.
>>
>>7544614
Adult women don't read that shit very much.

Book club reading lists are rarely "patrician", but they're better than what most adults read.

Book clubs in general try too hard to find books that won't lose them members, so they go for best sellers and shit Oprah recommends. It's not really their fault that they are too insecure to risk having a two people club.
>>
>>7544654
it's biological.

They're not really, they just read different types of literature.

Women read fiction, men read history and biography.

meme response, men read literature with actual value. Women's collections tend to be 90% YA with some classics (usually required reading for their social vaginas degree) and feminist literature thrown in

look at the "booktuber" scene on youtube. It's all women and they all have terrible taste.

this. my gf has 2 3 ft tall bookshelves full of YA and fantasy books. literally cancer

meanwhile my study has 10,000 copies of the finest critical literature known to mankind, from the Greeks to the Post-Post-Modernists and everything in between, leather-bound and in their respective plastic bubble wraps. no more, no less.

I was speaking with a former high school English teacher about this. From her perspective it really seemed like more girls were interested in language itself than boys. There were definitely more girls taking optional literature classes. I think it has something to do with neurological differences between men and women. You see girls playing with language a lot more than guys, like in silly internet slang ways.

Maybe women are more inclined toward creative expression and men like being clear and concise, speaking generally.
>>
>>7544729
Do you have any evidence to make you think that's the case?
>>
>>7544981
Women are inclined to prevarication while men are inclined to honesty.

calling grown people children is a way to pretend that you can't possible be one of them. like calling a murderer a monster so you can pretend to "real" human could have done those things and there is no senario where you would have done the same. face the mirror, anon

A larger section of their brain is dedicated to language use. Women are, without a doubt, on whole, better writers than men.

And of course, the titans of literature are men, that's a fact. But generally speaking, women are way way better, this, also, is a fact.
>>
>>7545219
>doesn't hold up. I'm pretty sure he meant immature/feebleminded (like a lot of women).
yeah but a lot of people have that side to them, a person you respect the most could be indulging in some shity works.

They have to meet in groups because they lack the security and drive to do something on their own without encouragement from the other vaginas. This thread isn't just shit and bait, it's bad comedy. Go back to tumblr or whatever website pats you on the back for being a retard on purpose.

Because men eat meat which releases testosterone which makes them unable to focus on things as well as women can because they don't have testosterone and have estrogen intead.

This is because nobody wants to look at some dude's ugly face. Same reason women are in customer service. Same reason women were just as prominently featured in early films despite the massive gender inequality in most other aspects of life.

Women like to appear smart. Nothing is more effective for this than reading pleb core normie lit and fashioning yourself a bookworm, all the while writing 1 star reviews on goodreads for books that go over your head.
