Re: Dog thread

I hope all you dog lovers clean up after your pets, don't let them bark all night, don't assume that everyone loves them as much as you do, and don't let them off the leash in the back country. Otherwise, they are no more than extensions of your selfish egos. Totally agree. We clean up after her, s...

Re: What is a Woman?

The ignorance in this thread is astounding. As is the obviousness of the inner circles on this community, but hey don't let me interfere. This is why I quit posting here as much, this place is a cesspool of angst, and veiled aggression. TBH, I see it going the way of E-Sangha. It's actually pretty ...

Well, you are hardly going to become more informed whth that attitude, are you?

I should have expected that attitude from a man in a thread titled "What is a woman".

Re: What is a Woman?

So let's recap in a more simple format. Your response, like identities, has no inherent existence in ultimate reality, and can therefore be dismissed. However, in the world of dependently arising phenomena, gender identity is not an arbitrary choice. It is rooted in biology. The brain has gender - ...

You obviously did not read what I wrote. You read the first line, and decided to post. As such I decided not to read your post.
As a matter of fact, I did read all of your post. I am not surprised that you didn't read mine though.

Re: What is a Woman?

Indeed. I would highly recommend procuring some and trying out your lovers hormone profile. A caution though. Testosterone is somewhat addictive and perhaps the best cure for PMS. You may not wish to go back. Actually, running a human brain on the wrong hormones typically produces unpleasant result...

Androgen insensitivity syndrome, from the graph, might be what I was half-remembering above.

Re: What is a Woman?

Pretty simple... Biologically a female is a biological entity with two X chromosomes. While a male has a XY chromosome combination. (Sorry, there are only two known sexes as far as biology is concerned. No, real biologists know that it is a lot more complex than that. Here (from Scientific American...

Re: What is a Woman?

Where to even start? :roll: It is not about chromosomes. It is not about genitals. It is about the brain. Female brain = woman. Male brain = man. No, you can't scan someone's brain and diagnose their gender. The structural differences have a large degree of overlap so a test cannot be diagnostic. Ne...

Re: Feminism, the "myth" of the gender pay gap and other left wing ideologies

But in the interview from the OP he sounded quite reasonable, I thought. I listened to the first couple of minutes of the video, and yes, he was talking about psychology, which is his field, and sounded reasonable. However, knowing that he is a person who makes up lies for his own agenda and his ow...

Dharma kitty

We just adopted a new kitty from the SPCA. He is about 5 years old and is very mellow. His name is Milo, though my wife reserves the right to change his name. Apparently, he even likes meditation: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4708/39817311411_cb269c8545_b.jpg As you can see, he is making himself a...

Re: Feminism, the "myth" of the gender pay gap and other left wing ideologies

Jordan Peterson made such an ass of himself during the debate on Bill C-16 that I wouldn't believe anything he said. If he said the sky was blue, I'd want to go outside and check. He is a right-winger, and I'll be honest, that is a strike against him, as far as I am concerned. But I will listen to ...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

I have heard the quote from many sources, and I suspect it is apocryphal. I know that it has nothing explicitly to do with Buddhism.
