I looked up more information about things you have done online and noticed you have a post (All things wildly considered: “No mistakes” - God Created Adam and Eve and intersex individuals.) I think your amazing. Your shining a light on biological diversity. I grew up Mormon and since have grown away from denominations to develop my own individual walk towards a “New Heaven” or way to bring God inside my soul. I think man was originally meant to be Angels, so I considered you fortunate and mentally better suited to be without judgments. Thank you Emily Quinn, sincerely Vaniar Lander.

if you've been raped three times, either youre a horrible judge of character..Having sex when you dont want to and calling it rape.. Or lying. They openly emphasize their repeated victimhood as if makes their words credible. Nobody supports rape or sexual violence yet they act as though it's a social norm when its not. I'll also add, those who preach strongly against something are often the best at it themselves. Liars often accuse others of lying. Racists often accuse others of racism and finally; sexism. Seems to me there is a culture of hate against men right now. Even if you have valid criticisms against a certain group, if you are speaking out against whatever social justice trend is in now; youre out of line. Now everyone go walk on eggshells and be careful not to upset anyone with your opinion while they shove theirs down your throat.
