25. "Comprenez-moi. Le misogyne ne méprise pas les femmes. Le misogyne n'aime pas la féminité. Les hommes se répartissent depuis toujours en deux grandes catégories. Les adorateurs des femmes, autrement dit les poètes, et les misogynes ou, pour mieux dire, les gynophobes. Les adorateurs ou poètes vénèrent les valeurs féminines traditionelles comme le sentiment, le foyer, la maternité, la fécondité, les éclairs sacrés de l'hysterie, et la voix divine de la nature en nous, tandis qu'aux misogynes ou gynophobes ces valeurs inspirent un léger effroi. Chez la femme, l'adorateur vénère la féminité, alors que le misogyne donne toujours la préférence à la femme sur la féminité. N'oubliez pas une chose: une femme ne peut être vraiment heureuse qu'avec un misogyne."

"I've known Kyrian for over two thousand years, and I can honesty say that I have never once caught him naked in his living room."
