Patriarchal Sexual Law | Bloody shovel
This alone is a sign that the patriarchy doesn’t exist anymore. Patriarchies are systems in which all women belong to a man; the husband after marriage, the father before that, or the head of the household if she’s a servant of some sort. Women have this uncanny ability to make men want to have sex with them, and at the same time prefer to have exclusivity in that matter. Not to mention the potential for disease or childbirth. So naturally their legal guardians had to take care that women, i.e. their property, was not captured by other men to have sex with them without proper compensation. As such, law regulating sex in the pre-modern period where every bit as complicated, and as harsh, as laws regulating finance and property in our day.

Linus Torvalds is Back in Charge of Linux - SoylentNews
Inserting the CoC into a technical project has proven by-the-by to be a very successful way of setting up arbitrary control over a project under the guise of professionalism and courtesy.

The CoC that was thrust into the Linux repo was taken from a rabidly feminist source, and it replaced an awesome, practical, virtuous statement about the importance of technical excellence.
