If all else fails blame it on the broad..

When I moved I ended up with about ten boxes of books which have for the most part stayed in those boxes thus far. A bit of everything although for the most part guilty reading pleasures from my childhood. My favorite being the cheesy Fright Night scary story books as I was completely engulfed in the stories from the first page. As I'd climb in the car, and quickly dig around in the dollar store sack being halfway through the book by the time we'd pull into the driveway.

I realized the other day though when I was digging through one of those boxes that I ended up with a couple of junk books from who knows where..One of them being a religious fanatics poem book from the 1940s. I admit to being a bit sensitive since the last unwanted book I found from around 1959, and was an entire discussion on how to diagnose and cure "gayness"..I'm trying the PC approach on this post just for a change

So here it is-

To Eve

I never saw her face
Any place.
She lived so long ago,
You know.
But there will come a time
When I
Shall look her in the eye
And ask,
With proper condescension,

From a woman as well..who would've thought it

I think the scariest part in the unofficial records of our past however is that plenty of these strange views are still very much alive.

I don't even feel the need to touch this one though..After all if somebody talks you into jumping off a bridge...(to use an oldie but goodie) Well I think you get the point on that one

On a light note someone sent this to me the other day, and the timing couldn't have been better.

Sometimes women are overly suspicious of their husbands. When Adam stayed out very late for a few nights, Eve became upset. "You're running around with other women," she charged.

"You're being unreasonable," Adam responded. "You're the only woman on earth." The quarrel continued until Adam fell asleep, only to be awakened by someone poking him in the chest.

It was Eve. "What do you think you're doing?" Adam demanded.

"Counting your ribs," said Eve.

Are you familiar with Lilith? She was edited out when they put the Christian Bible together, but she's still in the Hebrew book of Genesis.

She came before Eve; God created her from the Earth, just like Adam. This is important to note since it implies equality with Adam.

She wouldn't obey Adam, and she liked to have sex on top (no, I'm not kidding, that part is in the ancient scrolls), so Adam whined to God about her, and she was banished from Eden. Then God made Eve from Adam so she'd be subservient.

There is also a legend of Lilith that holds that she is immortal, in league with Satan, and walks the Earth today.

So, women are either disobedient or just plain evil.

I prefer it when women are naughty.

Love your new pics, BTW.

Voodoo I've been a bit fascinated with Lilith since the first time I heard about her several years ago. It brings up some very interesting points, but of course the whole idea is too threatening for most to handle.

Which the more they protest, it actually goes the opposite way turning into fuel to solidify her presence as well as boost her almost ideal feminism popularity. In other words if there isn't anything to worry about then why try so hard to discredit the whole theory? Painting over the parts that displease often defeats the purpose..Just a thought anyway

I think you summed it up quite well..disobedient or just plain evil seems to be the comfortable labels for many women of the past that didn't fit a certain image.

Naughty can be very nice

ty..You ought to be careful though, flattery can get you everywhere *grins*
