A Pagan thought on International Women's Day.

March 8th you say, so what?   Well, so what, it is Mother Earth Day, a festival which honors the birthday of the Earth as a Mother Goddess, is celebrated annually on this day throughout China.  The festival consists of street parades, the lighting of firecrackers, feasting and partying, Birthday presents!

Weeeee....

 Guess what?

For the last 2000 years this honor has been screwed by a few good men.  Here is what they said:

Aristole:  "Woman is an incomplete man."

Saint Thomas Aquinas:  "Woman is the misbegotten product of some defect in the male sees."

Martin Luther:  "Men have broad shoulders and narrow hips, and accordingly they possess intelligence.  Women have narrow shoulders and wide hips, to keep house and bear and raise children."

Regarding their nature:

Francisco de Quevedo:  "Hens lay eggs and women lay men."

Saint John of Damascus:  "Woman is a sicked she-ass."

Arthur Schopenhauer:  "Woman is an animal with long hair and short sight."

Regarding their fate:

Jehovah said to women, according to the Bible: "Thy husband shall rule over thee."

Allah said to Mohammed, according to the Koran:  "Righteous women are obedient."


So what's in your wallet?
