    ah, thnx for that as I said, to lazy :D

    and I think women can be really mean and vicious and evil and dark and everything else bad. It's just that they hide it better.

    The most "evil" people I know are women, but they don't solve their issues with violence, instead they make life a living hell for the poor person that invoked their ire.

    you mean the one put on music by Paul Simon?

    I think that the characters - supposedly male - are pretty hard on the little bird.

    But mother earth eventually kills the sparrow. Or, at least, seduces it to suicide...

    That's definitely a large part of it... cultural conditioning of both males and females to accept certain roles in life.
    But biology also plays a part, females bring new life into the world, and you can't beat that for a role.

    So here's the son I mentioned. It's called "the patriarchate" by the swedish punk band Aska Kask. I made a quick translation using google translate, so enjoy ;)



    Patriarchate an inherited tradition
    Where the Lord directs and writes Constitution
    Where each boy is a gift but each girl a burden
    A human of lower class

    Africans were heathens in the power of darkness
    So you colonized and forced them tax
    Drilled them in the papers shoved them into the house of God
    And gave them a life of light

    GOD has told me
    YOU WILL BE MY PROFET
    GOD SAID TO ME
    THIS IS MY SECRET
    YOU must make peace
    I AM damn IREFUL
    THEN she told me
    I AM A WOMAN AND I AM BLACK

    So much blood has flowed under the bridge my friend
    Since Jesus died on the cross and Moses walked home.
    So many wars you have fought for thousands of years of murder
    For your writings words

    Crucifixion and stoning have been upholding the law of God
    Woe to those who sinned under holy tribunal.
    But what if you misunderstood in some small part
    Well what if you made ​​the wrong

    GOD has told me
    YOU WILL BE MY PROFET
    GOD SAID TO ME
    THIS IS MY SECRET
    YOU must make peace
    I AM damn ireful
    Then she said to me
    I AM WOMAN I AM GAY AND I AM BLACK!

    They've got a point there! That is a pretty good summary of the role of women in the history of many human societies.


    I myself have nothing else to add to this discussion, except for: Boobies!

    This should illustrate Firiath's point.

    I belive the later is a bird that is part of the "tit" family. I do draw a blank on the first one though :p
