Poll: Your sex or gender?

Postby Jhana4 » Tue Jun 14, 2011 12:52 pm

Someone made this suggestion in another thread. At the least it seems like it will be an original for this board. What is your sex and or gender. Straight white man of European descent here :)
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

If you don't know my gender by now, then....

male

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

i was hoping the poll was between sex and gender

EDIT* i will let this stand, but it doesn´t clearly express what my hope is. Those thoughts might not be appropriate to expand on in this thread.

wishing you all well

Well, the poll is now up to two women. They are taking over! :)
