7. Surely you jest
Edited on Tue May-25-04 02:34 PM by nolabels
You even admitted in your own post he was correct. I also hope you don't think we can guide children into thinking that things are the way they are for them because they are that way for us.

We can only guide and help our children when the grow older. Trying to make them think, feel and act as we would want them to do is ludicrous. We have to let them grow up to be their own person

On edit: I felt males were being disced for being fathers which involves more than being a donor or some other apparatus that can be replaced by a machine.
