Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

While we waste our time correcting others, movement towards nibbana stalls. I don't think that those are efforts to "correct others". It seems to me they are efforts to push others away or defeat, annihilate them, and thus create a safe place for oneself. Tyranny is the best way to achieve social h...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

There probably isn't any dhamma which would trigger most sjws.....sjws are mostly known for their calm demeanor because to maintain ones pursuit of progressive goals one runs into all kinds of name calling detractors (it comes with the territory) and if one can not stay calm in the face of this der...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Do you see the problem with leftism and their ideas? What seems to cause a lot of trouble is the mindset of “do you see the problem with…”; the endless search for what is bothersome. This is not just directed at you, budo, it is everyone. Pick any ideological spectrum and that is all either side do...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

But then you could just as easily start a thread about Dhamma that triggers those prone to bhava-taṇhā. Just post a thread about the reality of death and watch members react. All I'm saying is that this just seems immensly specified in a landscape littered with ignorance that is far more fundamenta...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

Yes, many men are now in a state of confusion about how they should support and regard women. In many cases that does essentially manifest as promoting promiscuity, but as I stated earlier, the point should be that women have a very different experience and therefore have different reasons for havi...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

... You don’t think exposing those triggered by SJW related issues is a bit arbitrary? Practitioners recoil against all aspects of Dhamma. I can’t imagine why you would roar on such specific grounds. To get people to see which dhamma they pick and choose (Cafeteria Buddhists). But then you could ju...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

but you do not seem to know anything about the immediate particulars of how women think or behave. Either you forgot (which is understandable) or never knew. I have not forgotten nor am completely distant from these matters. In other words, your post above is wrong. What is ironic is those who appe...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

Sorry, not false view. Lostitude is correct, there are plenty of women in the US who actually enjoy sex for its own sake. Obviously a "minority" of women; whose bonding instinct has modified. Ultimately you are correct about lustful beings and hungry ghosts, but you do not seem to know anything abo...

Re: Gender Equality Poll

According to my knowledge of Vinaya and as all the monks I met say, "Even a today ordained Puthujjana monk should never bow down to a 100 years senior Arahant nun. And a 100 years senior Arahant nun must bow down to a today ordained Putujjana monk." This is clearly mentioned in '8 Garu Dhammas'. An...

No worries, CC. However, we have spent far too much time on this topic in the past so we'll just close it down.

Re: Husband and responsibility

Context is everything. It would not have made much sense for the Buddha to describe how to balance duties of any other household structure other than the one that was in place at that time. Let's not forget, he was not trying to "change the world", he was offering householders the best way to practi...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

To put the main question (derived from my incredulous interpretation of Master DooDoot's statements) bluntly: Do women generally have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men? Doesn't seem as though DD's original statement said that women's motives "for being horny" were more dham...

Re: Dependent origination=Nirvana?

SN 12.3 appears to say dependent origination is the wrong path ( micchāpaṭipada ). Case closed. how could it be wrong? … it's the teaching It's a description of the arising of this mass of suffering. Holding to that mass is holding to suffering. One who sees that, sees the Dhamma. One who holds it ...
