The Iliad

   So there you have the supposed cause of the Trojan War, ten years of he-man stuff – woman and booty.  When Achilles, the great Greek hero, goes off and sulk in his tent, what is the big quarrel between him and Agamemnon about?  The argument that cause Achilles to neglect the war – is it strategy or tactics?  No, it is “who gets the blonde?”

   Now, this is an attitude toward the female that is totally different from that which is proper in a dialogue between the sexes.
