A Pagan thought on International Women's Day.
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."
