«Natural Law & Sexual Ethics» @ Princeton, by Prof. Ed Feser

Of course I don't dispute difference or hierarchy between the sexes, just this pessimistic view.
Actually, I would even doubt if this is really Greek, after all, it was Odysseus who was unfaithful and Penelope was faithful. I mean, to simply throw this idea that men are reasonable and therefore they are not moved by passions is non-sense. Maybe this could be true in an analogical sense like when people speak of male virtues like restraint and mortification, but that is certainly not factual.
And of course, I'm no Victorian, I've seen my share of women to know they are not angels. But let's be reasonable, eh.
