Some men talk to a woman very much as they might talk to the wonderful automaton around at the museum when it plays a game of chess. “Why, bless my soul, it really seems to be thinking! What evident faculty of mental independence! It almost appears to possess the power of coherent thought!”
Hasten the day, dear Lord, when she shall be regarded as something wiser and nobler than an automaton, less perishable than a confection, more comforting and peace producing than a firearm, a veritable comrade for man at his best..
what would you think of a woman who addressed a club meeting of men by telling them how charming, how well gowned, how pretty, they were?
