Revised Classical Myths: Actaeon

Actaeon was a hunter. He was changed into a deer, and hunted to death, by the goddess Diana.

Although some say he startled her when bathing, it is now thought that he actually asked her "ironically" when International Men's Day is.

  1. It used to be common for Methodist churches in this neck of the woods to have an annual "Ladies Sunday". As a female Local Preacher, I got quite annoyed at being planned to lead the the services, because (a) I didn't understand what they were (they didn't have them in the churches I'd grown up in), and (b) I thought that they were patronising to women. I expressed my opinoins at the Ocal Preachers meeting: "after all, you'd never have a Men's Sunday, would you?" I was told that, on the contrary, several churches in the circuit did have a Men's Sunday. Presuambly on those days only men were allowed to arrange the flowers, make the tea and coffee, give out the hymnbooks, take up the collection, teach in the Sunday School , ... oh! and they probably made sure that they'd got some random man planned to lead the service.
