      You lost me, buddy. I imply, I suppose I get what youre saying. I get where youre coming from. But you just seem to have forgotten that you will find men and women out there who can see this issue for what it genuinely is and perfectly not agree with you. You seem to alienate a whole bunch of people who may have been fans of your blog.
