Promiscuity is not caused by feminism. Promiscuity is not caused by feminists. Promiscuity is not caused by women. Or by men. It is not caused by any gender. Promiscuity is not caused by The West.
We can recognize this by recognizing it is not new.
Promiscuity is caused I think by craving and or ignorance. All misconduct perhaps is caused by craving, ignorance, hate.
When misconduct is ascribed to politics, or activist movements, or The West, or liberalism, it seems to discourage examination of the actual causes of misconduct. It seems to suggest misconduct is not linked to defilements. It seems to encourage views which do not lead towards liberation.
So what are the causes of sila? Also, not feminism, the West, any gender, or persons, or political views or movements… ? Is the cause of sila morality perhaps the seeds of wisdom, insight, tranquility? Is it perhaps restraint of speech, body, thought? Is it perhaps renunciation of wrong views? It might be helpful to many for teachers to speak on this, so that attention and effort are given to what leads to liberation.
As i am not a teacher or scholar or able to guide a discussuon skillfully at this time, the kind support of those who are or can would be appreciated. It’d be a wonderful generosity to many!
