Lob des Sexismus. Frauen verstehen, verführen und behalten GERMAN

"Es gibt einen fundamentalen Unterschied zwischen M? nnern und Frauen. Ihn verdr? ngen, hei? t leiden. Ihn sp? ren, hei? t lieben. Ihn verstehen, hei? t verf? hren.

There was no dearth of lice . For weeks soldiers did not get a chance to change clothes and only occasionally to wash, and lice teemed in the dirty billets in Poland .
