There actually wasn’t a #MeToo movement back then for displeased/violated women to come out against Kunley.
Relevance?

I was talking about the probability that a guru displaying his activities is more likely to be genuine or a fraud. I didn't bring up #MeToo, but you have done so repeatedly in this thread: what's your point?

And on Marpa/Mila - my point was that if being a lay practitioner and a qualified vajra master is hard, which it is, how much more so to engage in the activities that CTR/OM/DK engaged in. The point stands regardless of what Mila's attainments were.

Meaning when you take the fantastical embellishments from that story away there ain't no difference between Kunley, Trungpa, or Mipham. The erratic behavior is part of tradition.
