And thus, women were part-animals,further proven by the fact that Helen, considered the most beautiful of them all,was hatched from an egg. And since women were playthings,daughters were given away as gifts, prizes & bribes. And it was considered good form to take women by force, as plunder or booty, or as spoils of war & to sell them as slaves for profit.[INTRO]
