comment In Levirate marriage, can the widow refuse marriage to the brother-in-law?
@sabbahillel Aaaah. Sorry, Hebrew text reads, "לא רצה לייבם או שלא רצתה היא. ה"ז חולץ לה" and the note 4 says clearly: According to the Rambam's conception, the woman cannot be compelled to marry her brother-in-law against her will. See Chapter 2, Halachah 10 and notes!

comment In Levirate marriage, can the widow refuse marriage to the brother-in-law?
Have you looked at perek 1 halocho 2?: "If the yavam does not want to perform the rite of yibbum, or if the woman does not consent,4 he should [free her from this obligation through the rite of] chalitzah. [Only] afterwards is she permitted to marry another man."

comment Does a dog know that it's a dog?
@Shokhet I see your point. I wanted to suggest that Rashi regards the donkey as less aware since he only recognises his master when he is fed (rather than when he is prepared for work). I see in this a very low level of awareness and infer (possibly) that self awareness is most unilkely.
