Was Shakespeare a Woman?

Article here. Excerpt:

'On a spring night in 2018, I stood on a Manhattan sidewalk with friends, reading Shakespeare aloud. We were in line to see an adaptation of Macbeth and had decided to pass the time refreshing our memories of the play’s best lines. I pulled up Lady Macbeth’s soliloquy on my iPhone. “Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” I read, thrilled once again by the incantatory power of the verse. I remembered where I was when I first heard those lines: in my 10th-grade English class, startled out of my adolescent stupor by this woman rebelling magnificently and malevolently against her submissive status. “Make thick my blood, / Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse.” Six months into the #MeToo movement, her fury and frustration felt newly resonant.

Long before Tina Packer marveled at the bard’s uncanny insight, others were no less awed by the empathy that pervades the work. “One would think that he had been Metamorphosed from a Man to a Woman,” wrote Margaret Cavendish, the 17th-century philosopher and playwright. The critic John Ruskin said, “Shakespeare has no heroes—he has only heroines.” A striking number of those heroines refuse to obey rules. At least 10 defy their fathers, bucking betrothals they don’t like to find their own paths to love. Eight disguise themselves as men, outwitting patriarchal controls—more gender-swapping than can be found in the work of any previous English playwright. Six lead armies.'

Let's clear this up. Not only was Shakespeare a woman, just about every successful political leader in the past was actually female. Same for mathemeticians and scientists of all kind.

Isaac Newton was in fact female.

Thomas Jefferson was a man but his girlfriend ghost-wrote all his shit for him.

No. He was not a woman.

Just another example of women trying to take credit for a man's work.

The only people who would waste time and other people's money on researching this kind of gendered dish-water are feminists who can not tolerate any likelihood that men may have feelings they can express with dignity, emotional intelligence and beauty.

We must all know that all great poets, authors, artists, musicians and sculptures must have been women because men are incapable of having feelings or expressing them. How could animals have feelings?
