Kevin is entitled to his mysogany. And I think that exposing him to ridicule over it is a little cruel and certainly will not make him question whether or not his biological determinism is justified.
Did you not see 3rd post in thread?

This is the dharma free-for-all and this is certainly related to Buddhism if there's a guy out there calling himself "Buddhist" with 2 youtube channels, a website, a podcast, posting on at least 3 forums including this one, trying desperately to disseminate his views to "do something great" in his words and this is one of his core concerns.
So, Namdrol, do women have the 5 poisons, then? Or not? While it was traditional in Buddhism due to cultural circumstances and implications to find a male human birth most favorable, is there anything to suggest women are not conscious?
