This mountainous peninsula in Greece, with an Orthodox monastery,
is prohibited for female gender in order to ..... ensure celibacy.
Considering the fact
that they ban most domestic female animals, you wonder what kind of priests
live there !!!
"There was a
prohibition against eunuchs and boys in the Byzantine period," says
Speake. The fear was that a woman could pretend to be a boy or a eunuch in
order to sneak in." Ugh...
nowadays is that boys frequently come if they're accompanied by an adult -
usually their father - and I've seen boys as young as ten. And the monks are
very indulgent towards them. They actually like having boys around."
"And in 1953, the
three-day visit of a Greek woman, Maria Poimenidou - who dressed as a man -
caused Greece to pass a law which prohibits women from entering Athos, with a
maximum penalty of 12 months' imprisonment for those who break it." the
bunch of savages.
All right, it is about
time for now. Femen, it is over to you.
