comment Is it permitted for a male to have a female therapist?
Unfortunately there have been quite a few instances when psychiatrist s have taken advantage of their patients ( most often female). In instances of gynecological exams, it is now required that a female nurse be present when a male physician examines the patient. Remember that doctors and professionals are human beings and that the halachot of yehud are there for good reason.

comment Is it permitted to eat boogers?
This will cause disgust to others around and is not becoming of a Jewish person.If the person has a psychiatric problem, this is another issue... If it is a starving person, pikuach nefesh would come into play which would be permitted.

Perhaps for the safety of the children as well? Nowadays all possibilities need to be taken into account.

So if something (like vegetable) is planted and harvested on shmita it is forbidden to eat? Is it still kadosh? What should be done with it?

comment burning the Israeli flag
There is a Jewish star on the flag and the flag resembles a talit. There is a shame is burning the representation of the flag that stands for the land of Israel. Israel represents most Jews and to burn the flag shows a rejection of the fact that G-d allowed Israel to be in Jewish dominion(after thousands of years of foreign domination).Rejecting and opposing G-d's decision to have the state exist thusly may fall into the category of hillul Hashem.

comment How does one build a mizbeah?
Also, Eliyahu made one while the beit hamikdash was still standing so , kal vachomer, when it is not standing I would think it much more acceptable.

@cham what is the source for this opinion that he did a "temporary violation of halacha"... I would rather believe that it is a precedent than a violation....

@cham why only on temple mount? The Tanach gives many examples of mizbeachim built all around the country...

I am not saying that I want or will build one,this is a halachic question that you need not vote down because of your own biases.
