03:40 pm - Grrrrr
Listening to "Lost Paradise" from the Lilac Fairy Book, another Eve/Pandora's box/Bluebeard's wife story. So sick of women being villified as the curious cats. The story begins with the coal-maker's poor wife complaining that if she'd been Eve, they'd still be in paradise, and leads inevitably to the "King" proving her wrong. *kicks sexist archetypes*

This is why I love the Arabian Night tales. Because the men are also depicted as curious cats who can't keep themselves from trying the forbidden. At least it's more honest than pretending that only women are capable of such things.
