Monasteries contain men!

Heh, I didn't know that. Notice the BBC headline:
"Vladimir Putin visits Mount Athos, all-Male enclave"
Bwa Ha Ha!  Of course it's an all male enclave.  It's a monastery.  What did they expect?  Well, you know what they expect.  In the world of post-Christian secular liberalism, few phrases can inspire more rage or instill more disgust than the phrase "all - Male [fill in the blank]."  All Female, All Gay, All Black are just fine and dandy.  But All Male?  Perish the thought.

So hoping that post-moderns are truly as ill-informed, if not downright stupid, as the Left hopes, they flash this banner out there, likely just a method of subtle, subliminal message.  There's really nothing in the story suggesting there is a problem.  The writer of the story might not have though anything of it. But whoever wrote the headline was either shocked to find out that a monastery had all men, or knew full well it did, but somehow wanted to dangle a little red meat in front of any unsuspecting post-moderns on their way to work.

I realize I should try to find a  more charitable interpretation of why the editor felt the need to point out Mount Athos, a famed Orthodox monastery, was an all male enclave.  But right now, I'm having a hard time coming up with one.   Either ignorance or agenda.   If anyone can come up with a better reason, I'm all ears.
