As a little antidote I wish to share these words from Roger Lancelyn Green's book, King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table (1953).
Here Merlin is instructing King Arthur's knights how to behave as honorable and righteous knights.
Do no outrage nor murder nor any cruel or wicked thing; fly from treason and all untruthfulness and dishonest dealing; give mercy unto those who seek it - or sit no more at this Table. And always give the help in your power to ladies and damsels, go out to succour gentlewomen and widows, turn from all else to right any wrong done to any women in the world - and never, on pain of death and eternal disgrace, do you any ill thing to a women, or suffer it to be done. Nor, for love or gain, fight in any quarrel that is not just and righteous.Many COG men would have done well to try and live up to ideals like these.
A lot of men within the COGs desperately need to be better informed about how to treat women and stop thinking they have some dictatorial authority over them they need to enforce violently with temper tantrums and fists.
