OK...I get it, one may recount rumor of.."stories of sexual exploitation including, for example, the transmission of AIDS. (In the latter case I would prefer only to reveal details via PM"
but when asked for specifics ,we are then asking for personal informations to include names of people infected with aids....at least that is what is expected to be believed.
And I say to this..."I am Gelugpa - why would I be more upset at sexual exploitation than someone completely outside TB? And why would I assume Tibetan monastics to be universally pure in practice? "
Mine is not to ask such questions, it is none of my business.
What I do know and take exception to is that Tibetan Buddhism is so characterized when I know as fact.... examples of such things may be found in very many forms of Buddhism. It is wrong to only characterize one when many so engage regardless if one is one or not. This is a general forum.
The psychology to compel one to do such is not my concern nor area of expertise.
Read back - You are wrong - again. I mentioned that such things are probably not confined to any one culture or religion:
''I don't think it is likely to differ much across religions and cultures, but may differ according to individual circumstances, age at which they entered a monastery, previous sexual encounters, sexual preferences, opportunity, etc.''
I offered details of a specific modern case by PM yet you claim they are not offered.
I was also very clear that the AIDS case was one person.
You just want to troll me, using 'straw man arguments' about things I never said, as I note you are chasing my posts around the board. LOL
Sorry if facts upset you. I will also continue to delete all insults and breaches of ToS btw.
You promised not to engage with me and yet here you are doing it again. Short memory?
