    I am wondering if this post is for males only.

    I appreciate and respect everyone's sentiments HOWEVER, the exclusive language is troublesome.

    If you would like to understand my position please try this: settle-in, close your eyes and have someone read to you Krishnamurti's words using FEMALE pronouns only (that is if you are male).

    I was asked to do the same with the reader using male pronouns. I was forever changed.

    Exclusive language is not acceptable in a society that seeks equality.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Thank you for sharing these sentiments. Some adjustments were made to this piece (in parenthesis), but I didn't get to all of the places that could have been done. This would have been easy to do, and I wasn't being diligent. You will see this piece adjusted now.
