The selling of infant daughters is not that unusual in large cities.
The selling of infant daughters is not that unusual in large cities. Some women do it regularly. They make a practice of it, much as they might sell their hair to hair merchants or to the weavers of catapult ropes.
Some women, it is rumored, hope for daughters, that they may sell them to the slave trade. These women, in effect, breed for slaves.
Too, there is a common Gorean belief that females are natural slaves, a belief for which there is much evidence, incidentally, and in the light of this belief some families would rather sell a daughter than raise her.
