I must confess I was too horrified at the idea of cooking a live creature in this way, to think of Medusa.

The story, with its emphasis once again on a woman's looks, was another nail in the book's coffin as far as I was concerned. A few pages later, we have Coldmoon saying:

Quote:
Women today, on their way to and from schools, at concerts, at charity parties and at garden parties, are, in effect, already selling themselves. Their light behaviour is tantamount to such statements as, 'Hey, how about buying me?' or 'Oh, so you're not much interested?'
This isn't funny - it's vicious and full of hatred. Sadly, with all the recent revelations in the #MeToo movement, such attitudes towards women are alive and well.
