Note: The New History Society was formed in New York City in 1929 as way of spreading the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith. It was primarily an educational movement, the chief activity of which was international correspondence. The Bahá’í Faith is a monotheistic religion emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. It was founded by `Abdu’l-Bahá, a Persian man who spent much of his life growing up in Palestine. In the Bahá’í Faith, religious history is seen to have unfolded through a series of divine messengers, each of whom established a religion that was suited to the needs of the time and the capacity of the people. These messengers have included Abrahamic figures as well as Dharmic ones - Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, and others. Between 1911-13, `Abdu’l-Bahá traveled to Europe and North America to spread his faith. During his talks he proclaimed Bahá’í principles such as the unity of God, unity of the religions, oneness of humanity, equality of women and men, world peace and economic justice. He also insisted that all his meetings be open to all races.

Yo conozco mujeres bonitas, buenas, que disfrutan de su sexualidad al máximo (“abrir las piernas”, sí) y que, además, son interesantísimas.
Conozco mujeres que abren y abren libros y no pueden mantener una conversación que vaya más allá del clima.
No, queridas, no se engañen. Creo que mejor deberían trabajar en construir una autoestima fuerte en vez de basar su valor como mujeres en sus conocimientos literarios.
