  edgood  —  Grammar Tips
adjective

Foolish, inane, silly, especially in a self-satisfied way.
I’m sick of the Powder Room. I’m sick of pretending that some fatuous male’s self-important pronouncements are the objects of my undivided attention, I’m sick of going to films and plays when someone else wants to, and sick of having no opinions of my own about either. I’m sick of being a transvestite. I refuse to be a female impersonator. I am a woman, not a castrate.

—Germaine Greer ”Soul: The Stereotype” The Female Eunuch (1970)
