Re: What exactly is "Sexual Misconduct"?

TheNoBSBuddhist: What is so surprising about that? The law of the land is unjust in many places. For example, many gay couples in the world cannot marry because of the law of their country. I'm sorry, first of all, I wasn't talking to you - secondly - You have completely missed the point: if it hom...

Re: What exactly is "Sexual Misconduct"?

Are you therefore telling us that you are quite happy to break the law where you live because the Buddha has not specifically stated it is appropriate and right to adhere to such Law? Really?? :jawdrop:
Right...... :roll:

Re: Should women shave their legs and underarms?

The Guardian is obsessed with this issue and returns to it frequently. Declining revenues and few real reporters means that it has to pay bloggers and "commmentators" to re-hash and opine about news, and work up social issues out of personal preferences. The more contributions to each thread, and t...

Re: Age difference in relationship

....what I meant by the gap are 3 and 6 years. It is not superstitious but there maybe some astrological influence or elements involved in some people who were born in particular time which do not match with other characters? I know couples who have 6 or 3 years gap with their partner are often enc...

Re: What exactly is "Sexual Misconduct"?

Hi TheNoBSBuddhist those who entail punishments, (Criminal convicts in prison) This is someone who you would be punished for having intercourse with, not someone who is being punished. That's rather vague....I have obviously misunderstood. as has the person who explained that rule to me in the way ...

Re: What exactly is "Sexual Misconduct"?

I mean law of where you live. In Texas you can marry at a younger age than elsewhere, so you have to abide by the local legislation, wherever you may live. It's not a question of referring to the 5 precepts. The 5 precepts are for those who adhere to Buddhism, the Law is for everyone regardless of ...

Re: What exactly is "Sexual Misconduct"?

That's your opinion, but I don't think you're entirely correct. Hello, TheNoBSBuddhist :smile: I really don't give out opinions, although I used to have lots of them. Now I don't even bother what sort of ideas I have about things. So if I post anything here (or there), it's of experience. But I'd s...

Re: Practice Buddhism and listening metal and goth music

I don't know; that would be up to the OP. But I suppose it's one reason as to why some people can listen to certain types of music, and others cannot. And constant exposure to music of the specific genre the OP has referred to, is also conducive to harming the hearing.... I'm wondering whether the O...

Re: Practice Buddhism and listening metal and goth music

...... Gabber doesn't sound like my kind of music either but I think "cannot get into" is really "refuse to get into" or "will never want to get into". Given enough encouragement (it often takes an attractive person of the opposite sex :smile: ) I believe nearly anyone can learn to like nearly any ...
