Took them as he found them

“Perhaps it is no wonder that the women were first at the Cradle and last at the Cross. They had never known a man like this Man… who never mapped out their sphere for them, never urged them to be feminine or jeered at them for being female; who had no axe to grind and no uneasy male dignity to defend; who took them as he found them and was completely unselfconscious. But we might easily deduce it from His Church… Women are not human; nobody shall persuade that they are human; let them say what they like, we will not believe, though One rose from the dead.”

— Dorothy Sayers, Are Women Human?
