If the Sacred Fire of Vesta went out, it meant one of two things: meant 1. Rome was in danger; meant 2. A Vestal ******, a guardian of the flame, was having ***. Chastity and fire are two attributes that are directly correlated. If one is lost, the other will follow. Trust me. This is fact: only ****** women can be celebrated.
The ****** Mary, the ****** goddesses, the way **** was seen as a crime against the father, not the daughter: women must remain pure.
Do not eat the pomegranate seeds, do not touch the fruit of knowledge. A statue of a young boy holding an apple does not hold the same connotation as a woman holding an apple. Offering it to a man who could have refused. Getting blamed for the fall from Eden.
A woman with a snake draped around her body is not Eve, is Lilith, but it’s close enough. They are both to blame for all the evils of the world, so what does it really matter anyway? Women are more susceptible to wavering in their faith in God, to worshipping the devil, to practicing witchcraft—
The flames are out. Rome is not safe. A “******” is buried alive for her sin. Lilith is slaughtering women in childbirth. Babies are dying. A man is celebrated for his multiple lovers. **** shaming in 79 AD. The beds in Pompeii brothels are made of stone. St. Cecilia is face down in the dirt. Women on the same level as slaves, if not lower. The goddess Vesta as a housewife.
