Wanna see how many there are.
Uuuuum… Define self-taught because I went to art classes but I didn’t feel like I actually LERNT ANYTHING (they were day-camps actually). I mostly learnt from tracing when I was 6. Also, how much of an artist do you have to be so that being ‘self taught’ actually sounds cool instead of pretentiously laaaame?
Also, pay close attention to when they describe Twilight Sleep; a form of obstetrical torture in the 30s, basically.
An answer to the question ‘Are women naturally weaker than men?’:
‘… women are generally less physically disposed to certain things, like building muscle mass, because of the lower level of testosterone. But women tend to build strong but leaner muscle when we work. We also tend to have higher body fat, which is good for long periods of low food, and better eyesight when it comes to details, and also (probably) a higher pain tolerance. Basically, we have a lot of traits that are hella useful in war, we just look weaker.’
