Re: "Creepy" Discussion

Gender roles are constructed and enforced. According to some lines of thought. But you can never really prove that societal constructs can completely overwrite natural dispositions. In many ways, the presence of feminists would say the opposite. Ugh...feminists. They put a bad taste in my mouth. Th...

Re: "Piano" Discussion

The guy made a tiny piano, or a small piano. He would have asked the genie for a "tiny pianist" or a "small pianist" to play it. That's just common sense. I don't understand why the woman would want to sleep with him for it. Now, if he had made the world's biggest piano, and ask...

Re: "Cuttlefish" Discussion
