Insults, Shakespeare style.

From the Shakespeare's Insults calendar:

Tush...though it pass your
patience and mine to endure her loud
alarums, why, man, there be good fellows
in the world, an* a man could
light on them, would take her with all
her faults, and money enough.
(The Taming of the Shrew 1.1.125-129)

* if

Hortensio to Gremio, of the notoriously difficult Kate; both men are suitors of Kate's sister, Bianca.


But that I hate thee deadly,
I should lament thy miserable state.
(The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth 1.4.84-85)

Queen Margaret to York, whom her forces have captured; York believes he is the true king of England.

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
