"Not that I didn't enjoy sex at all but that the only times I truly enjoyed it was with the men I was in love with and those encounters were very limited at best (because the minute the shepherds knew there was something more than sex going on, they'd put me on word studies on putting Jesus first, etc). Meaningful relationships didn't have a chance to blossom. I'm still reeling from the effects of that to this day."

I agree that women definitely got a raw deal, especially single mothers. Single brothers would also get in similarly bad situations but at least not having to carry made them less bound. I think that the female/male dichotomy is weak because of the many cross gender situations that it fails to explain, at least by itself.
