Clement of Alexandria, Pedagogues II, 33, 2
With women “the very consciousness of their own nature must evoke
feelings of shame.”

St. Albert the Great, Quaestiones super de animalibus XV q. 11
"Woman is less qualified [than man] for moral behavior. For the woman
contains more liquid than the man, and it is a property of liquid to
take things up easily and to hold onto them poorly. Liquids are easily
moved, hence women are inconstant and curious. When a woman has
relations with a man, she would like, as much as possible, to belying
with another man at the same time. Woman knows nothing of fidelity.
Believe me, if you give her your trust, you will be disappointed. Trust
an experienced teacher. For this reason prudent men share their plans
and actions least of all with their wives. Woman is a misbegotten man
and has a faulty and defective nature in comparison with his. Therefore
she is unsure in herself. What she herself cannot get, she seeks to
obtain through lying and diabolical deceptions. And so, to put it
briefly, one must be on one’s guard with every woman, as if she were a
poisonous snake and the horned devil… In evil and perverse doings
woman is cleverer, that is, slyer, than man. Her feelings drive woman
toward every evil, just as reason impels man toward all good."

both reflecting Aristotle’s ideas, for true Catholic view of women you cannot do better than the writings of our dear late pope JP2

thank you so much. The person I was discussing this with first made the assertion that there was a debate over wheter Mary could truly be the mother of Christ, as women are evil. I asked for sites, and that was the best she could dome up with, and it got me off-track.

I must admit that most of the infidelity i hear about seems to be committed by men.However,women do seem to be catching up,both with having affairs and in over-indulging in alcohol,with the consequent domestic violence.When a wife is being assaulted the
Police seem to be much quicker off their marks than they are when the husband is the victim.Just this morning,on Television,i
heard of a daughter who took up karate,in order to protect herself against her alcohol befuddled mother who had abused her since childhood.When this kind of thing is revealed about a woman,
reasons are put forth like,“she herself was abused as a child”.
However,these reasons are not admissible with violent men,they are just plain evil.
