NOT AWESOME: Nobel Laureate proves that Nobel Laureates can be dickheads too

Step 1: Win 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature

Step 2: Best friend writes a memoir describing what a jackass you are

Step 3: Shut up about everything?

Nope!

Nobel prize winner V.S. Naipaul’s next step was to claim that no woman can write nearly as well as he can.  You know, with those breasts getting in the way of all that delicate penmanship.  From The Guardian:

He felt that women writers were “quite different”. He said: “I read a piece of writing and within a paragraph or two I know whether it is by a woman or not. I think [it is] unequal to me.”
