Sharia Law in the U.S. -- in 1923!

An Ohio teachers' union posted this to their Facebook page recently.  It's a contract for teachers in 1923.  Note that they have to travel only with a male family member - no neighbors, dates, or friends.  Does this sound familiar?

I wonder what went on in downtown ice-cream stores.  And how did the school verify the number of petticoats?  Did they lift up the teachers' skirts to see what was underneath every morning?

An astounding and profoundly embarrassing document. But the mentality of the country back then becomes easier to grasp when you realize that women had only gotten the right to vote just three years earlier. If just 92 years after something this silly could be in force, we've got a real possibility of a woman President soon, it's actually a hopeful indicator of how far the Middle East may advance in another generation or two.

Oh, and I bet downtown ice-cream stores in 1923 were absolute dens of iniquity:-)

Or to put it plainer, the religious BS of the times were in control of most things and women were thought of as not to bright and xtian or jewish or even isLame are NOT that different. And when after women BATTLED to get some rights, then things started getting civilized.
The midEast will not get civilized until the women get enough power to BATTLE for rights, which is near impossible where its OK to kill them.

Hmmm, no getting maried, no "keeping company" with men or even being in a car with one..... Sounds like the ideal teacher of 1923 was -- a lesbian.

Imagine what the contract was like before women got the right to vote. They probably had to go out and cut down the tree and split the wood before 7 a.m. so they could start the fire.

All of those are great stipulations... especially No. 13 - applies especially to female anti-theist bloggers!

The times have definitely NOT gotten better.
