and this doesn't strike you as odd?

bloody hell not another attempt at a pro-feminist post - I mean how scared is this man?

I was recently fortunate enough to stumble across The Dawn Patrol, the wittily-titled website of a Ms Dawn Eden. Among other sensible and logical thoughts presented entirely without bias, she has single-handedly cracked the old chestnut:
if (wo)man is born free (nothing to do with those lions - please try to concentrate) then why is (s)he in chains everywhere?

The gloriously simple answer that has oddly enough eluded some of our greatest minds from Rousseau to Stephen Hawking to Gary Lineker is as follows:

"In an age of sexual liberation (made possible, in part, by easy infertility) and feminist freedom, we resurrect the concept of people as chattel."

Of course! It's feminism, the availability of contraception and freedom of thought in general that mean we are errr really very unfree. Those naughty feminists - they pretend they want to empower women and even up some of the more glaring inequalities that bad old patriarchy has created, but really they are trying to make people (presumably women included) slaves. I don't think she really explained why that should be so, but, hey Dawn, that argument is enough to convince me.
Tomorrow Dawn explains why the earth is flat and the devil put the little stones in the ground so we could dig 'em up and imagine they were animals from long ago. Don't miss it - I include her address for those who wish to be enlightened.

    sorry witchy woo - as someone who appears to
    a) be a woman
    b) do some thinking
    and (worst of all)
    c) talk about what she has thunk

    I don't think you should be posting on a nice respectable site (shite?) like mine. You may return only with a signed note from your husband (if not fortunate enough to have one your registered owner will do). If I could stop praying for 5 minutes I would moderate your comment into oblivion - it's just the blood from the flagellation that gums up my keyboard.
    PS did I mention I am going into partnership with Dawn Eden - what a truly resonant name - smells of book-burning and monkey-lynching (yes I know they didn't actually try the monkey...)
