Hey, now that Retro gave us our own thread, we gotta come up with more than that...
Ok. How about that:
Some take vows to not disparage women because they appear ill more often then men.
I already said this is probably a misinterpretation of normal body functions as "illness".
I further claim that beings who can endure the tasks of a woman must be equipped to do so.
Mentallly and physically. So who has the higher potential, here
But I am not really a friend of "this vs that" discussions, and placing one above the other, that is why I stand up in defense of women.
I feel we all have our challenges, talents, shortcomings, and imo they are equally distributed amongst the genders.
Men are burdened with the sex drive, yes,burdened with constant desire, whilst women are less.
I also believe that this is the reason why all religions which were made by men dwell so much on the renunciation of desire.
It is their very own problem, which is naturally at the fore front of their thinking´´, also because they don't experience direct results as much as women.
A woman made religion might look different when it comes to priorities.
Would it look like a man's religion or philosophy at all?
(Retro, perhaps you can think of a another title of the thread, not just a health thread...?
Objections against women as the lower rebirth /being, from modern and dhammic POV's.
