welcome to my nonsense
"...the mind of most women is not disposed to study, and they will turn the words of Torah into words of nonsense due to their limited understanding" Rambam Hilchot Talmud Torah 1:13
this quote is from Rambam's laws about Torah study, where he states that as women are not obligated to study torah they receive less reward for their efforts. However, why bother. Since women won't understand it anyway and will just turn it into nonsense.... or paper-cuts... (click on image to enlarge)
since the tone of this infantilises women, I have depicted them as school-girls. some studious...
and some just vacant and confused... (in a St. Trinians style)
picking up on the nonsense theme, there are various quotes from Alice in Wonderland dotted about
