"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

Well, now, this changes a whole bunch. Makes my Catholic guilt tingle just a little bit less.

From the ole inbox: A friend (or two) of mine and I wanna get our own place. Aside from cost (rent is TOO DAMN HIGH), what do we need to look out for or know?
An excellent question! Here we go:
Before you are ready to move: Make sure to keep an updated document of your current and past…
Also, be sure to ask if they include some utilities, like water, sewer, trash. Take a look at the air conditioning unit, and the fire alarms—if they take care of those things, it’s a good sign that you’re in good hands. Another note on security—if you have a door that faces the outside, check that the parking lot is well lit. Ask if they change the locks between residents(I had a neighbor try and crowbar his way into my apartment while I was away one weekend). If you get the chance, in the elevator or the parking lot, ask people who live there how they like it. How is the maintenance handled? Is the management reasonable? Things like that.
