It is closer to s serious mental illness then a lifestyle choice,you can’t find happiness or a purpose in life unless you are willing to truly reach out to the opposite gender.
I am against legislating anything out of existence,unless it is truly heinous,but I can see where Russia is coming form.
The world is a strange place when I agree with the Russians.
the MSM is not covering this.
Protecting children from such easily avoidable dangers is lost to the media since the media mob IS the danger. All the news, from huricane sandy, bengazi, to this story is from a NYC bloomberg delusional perspective.
