  •  And that even if it were a choice (0+ / 0-)

    (we don't all have to live openly - just that there's more integrity to it)

    it's still a perfectly valid choice and just because it makes random over-fuelled men feel inadequate is no reason to think it's a poor choice.

    This is the kind of thing that makes the Buddhist doctrine of non-violence/no anger so very difficult to maintain.  Along with the practise of female genital mutilation, the murder of 'witches' and the marrying/impregnating of girls so young that when they give birth, they develop ano-vaginal fistulas that then leak urine and faeces for the rest of their lives...

    I kind of wonder why I don't run amok with a machine gun.  except I live in a country where I get to read about these things, not experience them - and in any case, I don't have a machine gun, nor do I want one.  

    but heck, it's hard to hold the compassion....

    •  I understand. I do not believe in violence. (0+ / 0-)

      That doesn't mean that I immune to its temptation.  

      One can only feel the satisfaction that comes with resisting the urge to do wrong if they first have the opportunity to cave in to it.

      Picture a bright blue ball just spinnin' spinnin' free. It's dizzy with possibility.
