Of course Dana, stripping them in public is so humiliating(even though they've been circumcised), not like hanging or burning at the stake.

Did someone say stalker?

Any religion that imposes its beliefs on anyone else is a Satanic religion.

This is a long read, but a fascinating look at the plight of women in Nazi Germany and Ravensbruck, the women's concentration camp, pretty much lost to history.

Quote:
The story of the Nazis’ only concentration camp for women has long been obscured—partly by chance, but also by historians’ apathy towards women’s history. Sarah Helm writes about the camp, where the “cream of Europe’s women” were interned alongside its prostitutes, and members of the French resistance perished alongside Red Army prisoners of war.

At its height, Ravensbrück had a population of about 45,000 women; over the six years of its existence around 130,000 women passed through its gates, to be beaten, starved, worked to death, poisoned, executed and gassed. Estimates of the final death toll have ranged from about 30,000 to 90,000; the real figure probably lies somewhere in between, but so few SS documents on the camp survive nobody will ever know for sure. The wholesale destruction of evidence at Ravensbrück is another reason the camp’s story has remained obscured. In the final days, every prisoner’s file was burned in the crematorium or on bonfires, along with the bodies. The ashes were thrown in the lake.
It has the history of the camp and it's main characters. A really fascinating at the Nazi regime and women.

Now that the US military is allowing women into its elite units, there's an effort to augment the Green Beret (male) statue at Ft. Bragg with a female version next to it. The latter would be similar in design and oriented to face the former. It would capture the current uniform and individual weapon, be constructed of space age polymers and done in full color.

The current statue was privately funded and so too must be any new statue. They decided to sell miniatures (statuettes) of the proposed design to raise the money and test marketed pre-production samples. Those didn't go over well. Perhaps it was because there aren't many female Green Berets yet. They tweaked the final design for the statue; however, and now the miniatures are selling like hotcakes: Link

you might be looking through the wrong end of the telescope.
