Men are bound to more than the women folk are...

Yep. But women are no less frum than men because of it.

Our sages tell us that if a man or woman observes every mitzva that applies to them, it’s as if they follow all 613. So normal speech in the frum world is that we follow 613, when in reality that’s impossible <<cut>>.

if there are mitzvot that we can not fulfill, for instance because we live in the diaspora, or because they apply to a time when the temple is standing, we still learn about them, we still study them, we still yearn to fulfill them. My understanding is this counts as fulfilling the mitzvot.

I’m not even sure what you cut from this post? But this is now a non-sensical post and directly contradicts what I believe, and you’ve represented it as my thoughts. Can a mod delete that post, or at least attribute it to Mensaguy, as those are not my words?

Do you truly not remember the uncalled-for remarks you made (with the taunting "haha!" that you posted along with them)? Which had nothing to do with the topic at all (nor with the rest of the post that you made). Do you really want someone to repeat your foolishness back to you?

While I didn't report your post (before you accuse me), I was at least a witness to what you wrote. (Which, I presume, was an attack directed at me.)

What HaShem expects out of women is different from what He expects of men...Frumness has nothing to do with it, i believe...I believe one is frum if one performs the Mitzvot that HaShem expects of them...I think HaShem sets higher standards on men then He does on women in general...I believe there are Mitzvot only women can perform and there are Mitzvot only men can perform and then there are Mitzvot that only certain men can perform such as Kohanim...

Incorrect.

Quote:
...Of the 248 positive commands, only 126 are currently applicable. And of the 365 negative commands, only 243 are still applicable. So in total, nowadays, 369 mitzvot are still operative....
