    "The man is privileged to have sex with whomever he chooses" really does sum it up very succinctly. All the social/societal trappings really do revolve around prettying up, codifying, and justifying that point right there.

    I don't have enough fingers to count up the number of religious reich men I've met who are, quite simply, children. Walking ids who cannot and will not be told "no" for indulging any of their whims or passing urges. And everything becomes a power play. A child prioritizing someone else first becomes a rebellion against the patriarch's authority that must be met with force, either verbal or physical. A woman failing to perform the house duties to exacting specifications in the manner to which he orders them is challenging the divine right of the king to determine everything.

    ...and it's all held together by fear.

    How does the Republican Congress sit down with all the butthurt over taxing the wealthy?
