Minerva
Indeed, you are 66% erudite, 62% sensual, 50% martial, and 50% saturnine.
Another virgin Goddess (Diana or Artemis being the other), Minerva was, just like her Greek counterpart Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Freedom as well as an all powerful Goddess of War, which made her a most formidable opponent indeed.


Among the many disciplines that fell under her control were: writing,
the sciences, architecture, embroidery, and just about anything else
dealing with artistic skills, wise counsel, and of course battle and
warfare.


Like Athena, owls were considered sacred to Minerva, representing wisdom. She was a very wise warrior, respected by the Roman legions.


She was also, no kidding, the Goddess of Women's Rights and patroness of career women.

And now for my controvercial topic of the week: Circumcision!

So we watched P&T's Bullshit rantings on Circumcision Saturday night. They gave it pretty short shrift.
Now personally, I don't see any reason beyond religious for performing circumcision. That said, they made it seem like their Hebrew representative said that you're a Jew without circumcision. Now, while technically being Jewish is a birthright (or curse, however you want to see it), Judaism, like most religions, is a religion of action and testimony.
Very few religions allow you to sit in the comfort of your home and declare yourself privately. Whether it's through public ritual like Confirmation, Bar Mitzvah and Baptism, through family rituals like Christmas trees, Passover Seders, and festival meals, or through action such as not killing living creatures, eating things that are permitted by your religion (Halal, Kosher, Vegan, Vegan-Onion and Garlic, etc.), wearing appropriate clothing or accessories (like ash for Ash Wednesday), these things bind the followers of a religion together and forge a personal bond with G-d.
There are many opportunities to forge that bond, some of them are time-based, others are not. Circumcision is one of the first things a parent does to forge a bond between the child and G-d. To not perform the circumcision is to spiritually cut children off from their source.
I know I probably think it's acceptable because I've been raised and taught to be believe it's acceptable, but that doesn't make P&T's easy dismissal of religion as a reason for circumcision correct.
I also think they should have added in Islam to the mix, as they also require circumcision.
I wonder if Sir RFB has any monographs on the subject of sex before and after circumcision.
