When my world civ instructor asks about Confucius’s opinion of women as based on what was written in Analects and gets a feminist response… well, I think she started that in-class shitstorm herself.
Cliffnotes: Confucius is about as sexist, classist, misogynistic and dehumanising towards women as you’d expect from a dude living a long fucking time ago. Oh, wait… you mean that people are still questioning our intelligence, humanity, and ability to think rationally while lowering/comparing us to animals? Nice. Fuck Confucius and basically everything ever.
