So I look at the news: religious nutjobs are getting in trouble for taking marriage too far – both in having 60-odd wives to one man (yet strangely not vice versa) and for marrying wrinkled humans to humans still recovering from their first period.
So then I think to myself, why does almost all sexual child abuse come from men, why are young girls so often mixed up with much much older men, so much more frequently than older women with young boys? Why did this famous Afghan patriarch have four wives younger than him?
Then I look at the other news: the Israeli Offence Forces are getting criticised because their bombs and bullets aren’t just killing adult men (who can handle a bit of death) but are also killing the members of the other category of people: womenandchildren. Omigod! Those barbarians have killed womenandchildren! Those two groubs form a natural class together, don’t they?
