fragility & threat of rape
causes walls and women to fall.

This page discusses walls of varying thicknesses and their maximum height before they collapse. Also on this page is the story of Herod, a slave in the House of Hasmonean, being sexually attracted to one of the young women. He rebels and kills all of the household, except for this woman. When she realises what he wants, she goes to the roof, declares herself to be the last of the Hasmoneans and any other claims belong to a slave, and then throws herself off the roof. Herod keeps her body preserved in honey, either to fuck or to claim that she was his wife. Either way, she is just a body, to be used to gain legitimacy or abused for necrophilia. A woman on a pedestal.
