Maybe because Buddhism also teaches women cannot ascend to the afterlife? And that women also are "cursed" men's souls or whatever who have to repeat life as women, maybe its all a big cope? I am with you totally on her pretending, I just hope she can get out of this horrid loop.

Source please? I couldn’t find anything about this. I’m disturbed by this because I recently started going to a Buddhist temple and most of the people there are women. They even have women monks. (For the record, this temple is Tibetan Buddhist; idk if there are differing beliefs for women in different sects of Buddhism.)

Most I know is from an old friend who used to be a practitioner of Buddhism, but I do not know exactly what sect, as someone mentioned the differences of Tibetan Buddhists, but I believe she used a more Chinese influenced sect? Once again I am not fully sure, she was just very open about how the religion treated women and her in general so I stayed far away >.>

Yeah, I was pretty shocked too when I read an article on Buddhist monk practices/rules that can be summarised as 'women nasty, man good'.
