I'm glad you say "what often appears as". I do understand that your perspective and interpretation is a common one, and you find it difficult to find another way of looking at it. The thing is, irrationality and the love of irrationality are widespread phenomena. So it should not come as any surprise, really, if you think about it, that women are so exempt from public criticism as well as being quite stupid. So far from being an obsession per se, it's actually a topic of great relevance to the path of enlightenment. If this makes me "obsessed" in the eyes of the world (which ought to be: stupified masses), then I have no problem with that at all
Also, it's like prince once said...you'll be over all this when you're 35. It's just the stage you're at,(hopefully) perhaps the younger people here would like to engage in further gender discussions with you. That's fine, but don't take it personally that I find them to be redundant and boring.
I think it's highly unfair for people to use Prince's tendency to let damaged emotions influence his behaviour to be some kind of example of anything related to this forum; particularly unfair on him. It's unfortunate that he has let himself regress into that stuff, but it cannot be held against him or anyone else. Such things are difficult to overcome, and it'd be better if he took a break from the forum to deal with it.
And, I can definitely assure you that if I am still alive and well in six months, then I'll be in my 36th year, and, given my good progress of late, am highly unlikely to be sweeping my understanding of wise psychology under the carpet. I'm glad to see that more people over time are seeing the connection between women worship (or in men it is more likely to be fear of criticising them), and lack of faith in reason.
