...There is a tradition of the denial of sexuality within Buddhism which resulted, among male practitioners, not only in a fear of ‘eros’ but also in contempt for women...

Buddha speaks of the ‘defilement’ of women’s bodies which are ‘filled with urine and excrement.’

...The sutra argues that women are evil because their menstrual blood has polluted both earth and water making these elements impure. Since women, by nature, soil the Gods and Buddhas, they will all fall into the Blood Pond Hell after they die.

Sounds familiar. Religions of peace and light they are, each and every one of them.
