Hehe...it wasn’t a dude. We needed to fill the spot with a diversity selection. She only looked like a dude. That was to please the NAGs.
nully *ducking* and running for cover...
That picture is a classic. I really hope that sign is real...
“pledged that “women will shine”
That’s from Fukushima, not Abe’s economic policies.
Where were the women? It was a BYOB (bring your own babe) event.
