  1. You know, when I was a kid and watched old movies I always wondered why a woman with a interest in the outcome of a fight between two men would decline to participate in the fight . I thought surely she could do something, like even grab for the bad guy’s nuts. Surely that would be decisive.

    Little did I know that old westerns followed Deuteronomy 25 to the letter.

  2. I dunno. If I was in a fight and my foe’s woman grabbed my junk, I might cut her hand off myself. Seriously, there’s fighting dirty, and THEN there’s grabbing the jewels.

  3. When I first read this passage, some time ago, the thought that ran through my mind was, “Hmmm. I suppose there was such a prevalence of this that they had to make a special rule against it.”
