1. A woman's role is to be a mother.

2. A woman is to "burst the bonds of her sexual slavery" by her and the
world's     recognition that sex is for procreation only.  A call for
adoption of the    "Madonna complex?"

At first, I liked the "burst the bonds of her sexual slavery, to which she
has ever been subjected," but upon closer examination I think it is saying
what I concluded above. Yes? No?

This too is implying that sex is only for procreation.  And the "purer" the
sex, the more Buddha-like children????  By the way, what's a demon as stated
Having said that, what's a Buddha-like child?
