Example text

Yes, women have two testicles. They do what men’s testicles do. I take rife to mean ‘to become active’, or ‘to produce or give rise to’: infertion is about their location in male and female bodies; and diftribution is about where the sperm goes after its manufacture. Women’s spermatic vessels don’t just prepare blood for semen-making. They carry away menstrual blood as well. ) Several further details are important. First, women’s testicles are located where they are because women are cold: ‘the temperament of Women is much more cold and moift than of Men, for the heat of their Tefticles is weaker’ (1683: 9).

A woman, compared to a man, is now an object of male curiosity, ‘curiously’ made. She belongs to a different sex (‘they of different sexes be’). The similarity with men in the one-sex theory is qualified (‘Yet in the whole they are the same as we’). While the older view persists, the author is clear that women do OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 22/2/2016, SPi One Seed, Two Sexes? 41 not ejaculate seed, and their ‘stones’ (testicles) differ from those of men in several ways: Some indeed will have their use [women’s testicles] to be the same as in men, but that is for want of judgment; for Aristotle and Scotus both affirm that this women [sic] have no seed, and that their stones differ also in their use from those of men; their use being, as I have already said, to contain the egg which is to be impregnated by the seed of man.

Being manly is always a OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 22/2/2016, SPi Two Seeds, One Sex? 25 positive value, even when applied to a woman. By contrast, being effeminate or soft is morally reprehensible. (Ivarsson 2006:165–6; and see Stowers 1997) Colleen Conway confirms the one-sex theory and its seepage into the social body. Greeks and Romans ranked higher than other people of other nationalities; men were ranked higher than women, and women belonged with slaves, foreigners, and animals in the requirement of submission to male authority: slaves, too, were like animals, women, and foreigners insofar as they lived lives of submission.
