What's wrong with women?

The Catholic church PR disaster mill is grinding away, this time they announce that making a woman a priest is a crime which has the same level of severity as child sexual abuse; absolutely stunning. I did read somewhere that the reason often given why they don't want women as priests is that Jesus didn't have any women as disciples, using the same logic you would assume that since there were 12 of them at least one or two must have been gay, so....

The fear of women and sex seems engrained in the big three desert dogmas, I really don't understand why. Perhaps it's about power and control over the *real* meaning of life (i.e. reproduction) or maybe just institutionalised misogyny, whatever it is it's wholly unnatural and the source of a great many ruined lives.
