Obviously some of our differences are culturally and socially conditioned. But when men and women push beyond such conditioning and make conscious choices, do they still have some meaningful gender differences, or do those differences dissolve?
I honestly don't know, but I suspect that it's likely that conscious men and women will frequently have some key differences that align based on gender.
As a man I want to learn more about the perspective of women who are also devoted to conscious living. Is their perspective very similar to mine and other conscious men, or are there key differences to understand? What can we learn from each other?
Call me ignorant or disrespectful for asking the question, but I'll continue to pursue it despite any negative feedback. To do otherwise would run contrary to my purpose. My curiosity is greater than my concern about being labeled a certain way.
I would suggest taking a course in gender studies
if you wish to learn more about this topic - to study perceived differences in gender is fine.
I'm not denying that there may be certain differences between genders that could be statistically backed up.
However, to write an article that espouses dogmatic principles for men to live by if they are to be accepted as men is going a bit too far.
Imposing that one should live a certain way in order to be accepted as a man crosses the boundary between advocating 'conscious living' and advocating 'sexism'.
