1. Well

if they love us, they sure have a messed up way of showing it. I guess that as long as everything is on their terms, all's good.

2. Agreed, 2naSalit. I also think it's the remembering

of who we were before patriarchy that Paley tried to express, the reverence for woman. I just love the end of the video, Moses, on Mt. Sinai with his Ten Commandments, in the dark stormy foreground is either calculating the end of the goddess or perhaps we can view now as the beginning of the end of patriarchy.
