Re: Training: Separate the Sexes?

yeah mark... it is a technicality that allows such groups to use the claims of freedom to exists... by that argument then al qaeda should be able to freely meet and associate anywhere anytime in the united states... there is a distinction between private/public that i truly do not have the expertise to really claim any authority to discuss... i am not a lawyer... but if he is associated with ASU and they have a stated policy that is contrary??? why is there any need for such a statement??? if they can legally discriminate (which i do not believe) then why state that they don't when in fact they do? this really gets my ara mitama stoked (on the verge of raging)... my feelings are that it is easy for some to practice aiki-ostrich-do, bury their heads in the sand and ignore it, but that is not what i feel aikido is about... we should "fight" against injustice and wrong wherever we find it...
