Didn't RYBS get all upset at the idea that the chazakah of "tav lemeitav
tan du" is only valid in certain cultures, and not an eternal statement
on the nature of female humans?  So how is "kol hadrachim bechezkas
sakanah" different?

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
