I once had a guy tell me...

I once had a guy (fellow religious studies major) tell me that women shouldn’t be allowed to study in seminary for all the typical BS reasons — but the most surreal argument he shat out was that “the root word for seminary comes from semen, to reflect the masculine nature of spiritual leadership”. For what it’s worth, the root word for both terms comes from the Latin word for “seed”, but needless to say he is not at the top of our class.
