Tecosca Cormaic and Women

From what I understand, there is a considerable misogynistic part to the original Tecosca Cormaic that seems to be omitted from online translations of the tecosc. Would anyone happen to know where I can find the full text of the Tecosca Cormaic that includes the omitted part about women? I am curious of what it has to say and would like to see for myself how/why it merits exclusion; it seems a breach of academic honesty and objectivity to alter an historical text because of language offensive to modern sensibilities. I am also curious as to whether it is known or not if the misogynistic diatribe in the tecosc is reflective of native attitudes or is a Christian influence.
