Why no female Mozart?

An old quote perhaps but new to me:

Serial or sex murder, like fetishism, is a perversion of male intelligence. It is a criminal abstraction, masculine in its deranged egotism and orderliness. It is the asocial equivalent of philosophy, mathematics, and music. There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper. - Camille Paglia

The above and other quotes by Paglia can be found here.
