Why are [male] testicles more important than women’s breasts?!
A female friend, disgruntled at (1) how easy it is for male doctors to recommend slicing off women’s breasts at the sign of a cyst while the male testicles are held so sacred even at its most rotten state; and (2) how her sex ed class was utterly boring and bookish while everyone else’s had quasi-show-and-tells.

Just finished: Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam (2006).

Read only with an open mind.

Only the ignorant and the naïve cannot see that societies built on tribalism and religious dogma are destined to fail.
