I agree with Share on this. I remember seeing some posts from enlightened_dawn 
and never for a moment thought the handle referred to a woman named Dawn. I 
assumed it was a variation on "dawn of the age of enlightenment" that MMY used 
to say, like "an enlightened dawn." The idea that the poster was pretending to 
be a woman is ridiculous. You might as well say that TurquoiseBee is pretending 
to be a turquoise bee.

 That is one interpretation, but I have started to read some of those old 
posts. I have not found the part where Jim supposedly says he is a woman as 
search is really only partially functional in Neo, and not much better in the 
archive, but Barry ragged on him about it back then. And Jim denied that 
enlightened_dawn11 was him, and also said, as enlightened_dawn11, that he/she 
was new to the forum, even though Jim seemed to have been on the forum for 
about a year before that under his own name. So my research is incomplete, and 
I will be busy for the next few days, so I do not know when I will have time to 
read more of that. The exchanges between Barry and Jim back then seem pretty 
much the way they run now.

 turq, I've always assumed that Fleetwood's dawn name meant something like 
enlightened sunrise.

 Isn't it fascinating that after all these years Jim Flanegin STILL can't admit 
that he posed as a woman here on Fairfield Life for several months, posting as 
"enlightened_dawn" all that time?
 

 One *really* has to wonder 1) what the fuck he was *thinking* doing that, and 
for so long, and 2) what is wrong with his "supporters" that they manage to 
ignore it. It's really the biggest "elephant in the room" display of denial and 
cognitive dissonance in the history of the forum, even bigger than Robin 
Carlsen trying to continue denying that he'd hit his students, immediately 
after having admitted it. 

 

 The only sense that I can make of it is that Jim had a total mental breakdown 
during that period, and actually believed he *was* a woman. 

 

 When you think about it, that's no weirder than convincing himself he's 
enlightened.
 

 Whatever. Bottom line is that it's probably a good thing he's living way out 
in the boonies now, where he can't hurt anyone if he has another similar 
breakdown.

 One of the things mentioned about Buddha's enlightenment is that at that 
moment he said that 'all beings were simultaneously enlightened with his 
awakening'. The phrase is translated in different ways but they all basically 
say the same thing, that with awakening all beings were perceived as 
enlightened.
 

 I presume Jim can clarify what this means.
 

 To be honest, I'd rather hear him expostulate on what value posing as a woman 
for several months had in helping him realize his enlightenment. 
 

 Is this a technique he would suggest to other people interested in becoming 
enlightened? And if so, should they cross-dress only when posting on the 
Internet, or should they dress in drag when at work, shopping, going to church, 
and on other occasions?
 

 I think that many who are interested in enlightenment would also be interested 
in why, once he achieved his enlightenment by pretending to be a woman for so 
long, he's never admitted to having done it. One would think that an 
enlightened being who has come up with such an innovative sadhana as 
"Cross-Dressing For Enlightenment" would want to talk it up to all who would 
listen.

 

 What serious seeker would *not* want to know, for example, how Jimbo managed 
to conceal his occasional dhoti-tents while dressed as a woman. I'm sure they'd 
also be fascinated to hear how he made his decisions about which public 
restroom to use, how to dress when swimming in public, etc. 

 

 It just doesn't feel right that a person who owes his enlightenment to such a 
revolutionary technique as pretending to be a member of the opposite sex "clams 
up" and refuses to talk about it every time the subject comes up. It's almost 
as if by doing this he's saying, "Hey...cross-dressing worked for *me* and was 
one of the key techniques that allowed me to become so much better and more 
evolved than all of you. But if you think I'm going to share the secrets of my 
patented Drag Queen Yoga™ with you for free, fuggedaboudit. You'll have to 
shell out the big bucks, just like Catholics do when seeking advice from the 
guys in *that* church who wear dresses."
