    As the global expansion of Indian and Chinese restaurants suggests, xenophobia is directed against foreign people, not foreign cultural imports.
    Eric J. Hobsbawm (b. 1917)

    Men are the managers of the affairs of women
    for that God has preferred in bounty
    one of them over another, and for that
    they have expended of their property.
    Righteous women are therefore obedient,
    guarding the secret for God’s guarding.
    And those you fear may be rebellious
    admonish; banish them to their couches,
    and beat them.
