Abstract A selection of internet postings from January-February 1996 on the teachings, history, and laws of the Bahá'í Faith regarding sexuality, concluding with a discussion of some biological meanings of "gender."
Notes The first section, a lengthy informal "essay" by Armstrong-Ingram, describes some attitudes and practices of sexuality in a variety of cultures, ending with some observations on the issue in Bahá'í thought and history. This is followed by a series of comments by other individuals interspersed with Armstrong-Ingram's responses to them. Commentary is offered by Linda Walbridge, Bev Peden, Loni Bramson-Lerche, and Juan Cole. Edited and posted with permission.
