    ... to be a time of guilt-ridden punishment for having had sex, with or without consenting to the sex, with or without enjoying sex.

    It's all about unrelenting punishment - and imprisonment, yes, if the Grand Old Patriarchs decide a woman must be forced to raise a child by herself and see to it the offspring gives her a minimum of 18 years of grief as she is forced to be responsible for this being she may or may not want in her life.

    The only way around it is a tubal ligation or removal of the uterus.  The pompous religious and political patriarchs can make whatever the hell laws they want, devise any punishment, preach any hellfire and damnation sermons with their moralistic judgments, but if a woman removes the method of pregnancy, at least she takes control over whose seed does or does not impregnate her and/or sire any children she might have had, and as long as she freely enters into any sexual relationship, she's free to have and enjoy sex without the guilt the pompous political and religious patriarchs want her to feel.  It is the ultimate control over her own body and her own mind.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
