Filatio is possible for all.


To infer it as a negative thing to an obviously male user make it a homophobic statement.

Some logical assumptions can be made with adequate information supplied. Illogical assumptions and logical assumptions should be distinguished.

No, aside from kicking puppies for fun I like to let everyone know that they are inferior on a regular basis. It's part of my religion, deal with it.

Fuck you bro. The thought that you need an external morality speaks negatively about you.

Incarceration and atheism. It isn't clear which is the dependent variable and which is the indepedent variable.

Doesn't mean I'm an atheist. Could mean I'm a host of things or a combination of several factors. All I ever claimed to be was 100% white.

OP - I'm in the Deep South, and applied only to local schools. I made a passing mention of my atheism in my PS. I felt it was appropriate in the grand scheme of the essay, which was partially about listening to all sides of an issue and being comfortable holding unpopular opinions. Some people told me I should remove the reference, but I left it in, with good results.
