in the beginning, God said, "Let there be light!" and there was light, and we pronounced it good. so, light is good. that is established. but is good light? can good be light? we were told that a chaste woman is good we're listening, we said oh, by the way, a chaste woman is a circumcised woman we're no longer listening, we said for that good is heavy but a chaste woman doesn't get raped a chaste woman doesn't show interest a chaste woman ends her life to save her father's name your good is too heavy, we replied for it requires the woman to die, one way or the other so your good is no good and your good is not light for it becomes the woman's burden to control the uncontrollable is there any wonder why we no longer care to be chaste? why die to be good? why die to appear good? stop. stop your re-creation! let it be said that at the end, God said, "Let there be good!" and there was good because women were left as they were created so we pronounced it light.
