Pls forgive me for the below question. I ask this question not out of Ego but purely to clarify my doubts
Certain texts in the books of Srila Prabhupada indicate women to be low born as compared to men. Why so, please explain.
Example in Bhagvad Gita
O son of Prtha, those who take shelter in Me, though they be of lower birth--women, vaisyas [merchants], as well as sudras [workers]--can approach the supreme destination.
The books also specify that attraction to women is the biggest distraction for a devotee. why is it not specified generically as attraction to the opposite gender which then becomes applicable to both men and women.
Pls forgive me incase this question has offended anyone. Request the devotees to not misunderstand my query. I truly appreciate Srila Prabhupadas books and sincerely read them. However, I always had these questions on my mind. Hence, seek clarifications from advanced devotees.
