The Talmud on what women and men are like

THIS WEEK'S DAF YOMI COLUMN BY ADAM KIRSCH IN TABLET: My Son the Doctor Has Chosen the Wrong Profession. So says the Talmud in this week’s ‘Daf Yomi’—where rabbis call boys a blessing and daughters a necessary evil and blame their uncontrollable lust for actions befitting a rapist. These Talmudic passages have a very bleak view of both female and male nature.

Earlier Daf Yomi columns are noted here and links.
