"The religious school she went to [...] Ms. Wright said how all the girls had to wear a scarf tied to cover their ears at all times. Based on the biblical idea that the Virgin Mary became pregnant when the Holy Spirit whispered in her ear. The idea that ears were vaginas. That hearing just one wrong idea, you lost your innocence [...] The wrong idea could take root and grow inside you."

Snuff, by Chuck Palahniuk

I always think of this passage when I see some women go around with head scarves, unless it's really cold outside.
