Fix up all these girly threads of the "Topical Forums"!

    And bring up something vital and interesting. You guys can do that. Come on! Let's discuss something that can save the world and all the innocent animals like us. Where are all the manly threads?

      Apart from the word "girly" I approve the concept here. Maybe you mean "girly man" like Schwarzenegger says! At least it covers both sexes!
      I don't bother responding to a lot of hubs or discussions as they are too trite. The world needs some serious thought, not how to bake another cake or narcisstic fixations on sexuality etc.

        Well, the word 'girly' is a metaphor. I have nothing for or against women. I'm cosmically neutral. All I know is that we are spirits and that's all.

        Men can be girly as much as women can be girly. And women can be manly as much as men can be manly. It's mostly a matter of attitude and doesn't relate to anything else. Godspeed!

      Since this is in the religious forums, I'll respond from that angle.

      Spirituality is, by nature, the softer side of the human psyche.  What we consider to be feminine is the softer side of humanity. So, religious threads will tend to be 'girly' more than 'manly'.

      Suggesting we can discuss saving the world and innocent animals through a religious discussion is (from my way of thinking) a 'girly idea'. But, I couldn't even begin to imagine an interesting 'manly' thread in the religion and philosophy section.

    How about the sexism in your descriptions?  What you deem to be silly and unimportant topics you describe as "girly" and apparently you think meaningful and important topics to be "manly."

    Discuss!

        no such thing until we are ascended and reabsorbed.
        Maybe you are.
        Are you a bodhisattva?

                They can by focusing on reality rather than illusion
                The bodhisattva's job is to bring us a way to become aware of reality and master our selves. also help us to drop our material/physical attachments.
                Maybe.

    I don't think men consider topics involving "saving the world" to be manning up exactly. Men like matters of deep political debate where they can issue forth logic and one-up-manship.
    How come you don't know this?

    1. DasEngel profile image61
      DasEngelposted 13 months ago in reply to this

      That's kind of true. But, it's mostly about attitude. And we have women with their minds, hearts and souls deeply involved into domestic politics and so on and so forth, as well.

      1. Kathryn L Hill profile image86
        Kathryn L Hillposted 13 months ago in reply to this

  6. Kathryn L Hill profile image86
    Kathryn L Hillposted 13 months ago

    - actually, I would say most posts/topics are about saving the world.
    We just don't seem to agree on how. Or what to base the how on.

  7. Kathryn L Hill profile image86
    Kathryn L Hillposted 13 months ago

    is reality found with the mind
    or is reality found beyond the mind by the soul?
    or huh?

    I would say the latter, which is why I prefer Hinduism.

    OK, now let me say what I have to say. I need results. But what results am I looking for, and why? It's a massive totality.

    1. Kathryn L Hill profile image86
      Kathryn L Hillposted 13 months ago in reply to this

      yes.
      there is the process, there is the goal.
      I used to think that the process was the most important thing.
      But I recently realized that without the goal, the process is insignificant.
      So your result will depend on what you want the result to be: the goal.
      And the process to get you there should be real and trusted.
      Both bring you happiness.

              I don't think so, since they are in the wild.
              Domestic cats are in the company and love of humans.
              just domestic cats.
              I guess.

      I think we all have the power inside us to change the world. It was packed inside us like dynamite. We haven't explored it yet. Not properly even if we did. I've been playing games but I think it's all right inside us, and we need not look far away.

        I agree, but as Kathryn has correctly noted, one person's idea of changing the world for the better is another person's idea of destroying it.

        How about we all start by not leaving all our lights on and walking places occasionally and not throwing garbage on the ground.  Surely everyone can agree that those things are productive at least?  smile
