comment How do we learn “Taamei HaMitzvos”?
"rationalistic" I'm not sure what you mean by this. Are you contrasting to "Kabbalistic"? If so then I'm confused because plenty of "Kabbalistic" reasons contradict Halacha too.

??? "how fertilization happens" is not sexual "even though it has a lot to do with intercourse". I'm confused what you think sexual means. There are plenty of things which could be said very regularly and still be sexual (like my example above "let's have sex").

comment Having a girlfriend
Ok but how normal it is for him to say it to her is not relevant. It's whether this phrase is sexual or not (which is basically what I was saying here).

Too broad? Isn't every case different?

So hugging and kissing before leaving the house are also ok deorayta* if that's how they usually say goodbye to each other? This would be the logical extension of your division between Chibbah and Hergel. (*MiDerabanan even incidental touching is prohibited as Harchaka, which would likely parallel Chibbah-but-not-Hergel speaking.)

Simple. The reason הדרך לדבר עם אשתו בכל עת is relevant is that they are not Chibbah. Something common which is Chibbah (such as "Let's have sex!") would therefore be excluded from that heter. Note that he writes later regarding a women besides one's wife that אבל באשה אחרת אפילו סתם דבורים כשרוצה לדבר עם האשה מחמת שיש לו הנאה ממנה כשמדבר עמה הם מדברים המרגילים לערוה. Talking about a grocery list with your wife is (apparently) just business as usual, but talking about it with another women is (apparently) having "fun" through her. Talking about Chibbah is prohibited either way.

No. He says Devarim Betelim that he normally discusses with her are not included. Devarim shel Chibbah would be.

Frankly, I've never seen any congregation do it your way. Can you elaborate what traditions they follow? Perhaps those of a certain historical geographic area or the rulings of a certain prominent rabbi?

It appears all the answers here judaism.stackexchange.com/q/18928/759 disagree with this ruling.

I also have no indication that Kim Jon Un doesn't have the logic, but I don't really care about who might have the logic. Until I see it, I can't use it.

comment Why does the torah give us exact dates for the flood?
@YEZ Yes they have. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Applewhite (Whether it is moot or not, this proof is not a proof unless you already assume the Torah is divine.)

There's no "need" or "not need". His logic implies X independent of any other proposition ever (including his logic being true or his name being Moshe). That is a fact until someone shows otherwise whether you like it or not.

@YEZ Being the leader of a tribe is pretty cool. People have been known to commit murder for things like that. (Plus don't assume the religion and text were all developed at the same time by one person in this model.)

He includes them to justify why he is responding so quickly. It says that right there in the beginning. IAE it doesn't really matter what you think he was or was not saying or trying to say. His logic is that it is forbidden to any Niddah just like regular Negia. If you see any reason to distinguish please let me know.

@YEZ I didn't say no one has ever cared. I said there have existed people who didn't. That is sufficient to disprove this post's claim.

That's not parallel. Parallel is "Last week there was a maaseh and I had to paskin about writing this document..." dated 25 tevet. It's explicitly not Yom Tov but no indication that such a factor is relevant. In this case someone asked him about this specific case with the two kids who are in situation x etc. It's totally expected that the asker would mention their marriagability in case it is relevant, which it turns out it isn't.
