“In the course of time, however, the growing luxury of the town-dwellers, and in particular the seductive arts in which the women of the towns surpassed the unkempt wenches of the wilderness, must have been a powerful temptation to the herdsmen to enter into relations with them and to let themselves be drawn into the glittering misery of the towns.”

Can it be any more obvious that men who write books with stuff like this in them aren’t actually talking to real women at all?

Frickin’ hilarious.
