News at Eleven (Back Page): However, guess which male author

The Atlantic Wire specifically mentions, as if he is the driving force behind men's exclusion of female writers: "hard-living, macho writers like . . . Jack Kerouac." Interesting. I would have called him a life-affirming, sensitive author. It was Kerouac, after all, who wrote, "Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk--real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious."

from The Millions: On the Highway of Love, Jack Kerouac Divides Men and Women
