dogsfromeggs: wickebine: lawsonry: The following is a long, passionate response of mine to another male in one of my sociology classes. Read More glorious person A great comparison between two lines of thought: one rational and the other banking on the social programming he admits is mutable. Great way of summarizing the post.
