Thelibra's post is one of the few here that make any sense as to the reality of ATS.
I disagree with having a gender identifier.
There's a few simple reasons for this. Thelibra's point of view is correct though I feel this can also be expanded upon.
There are those on this planet that are physically neither male nor female. There are those who are of one sex but identify on a spiritual level with
Then you have those who just don't want to be identified or labeled.
This site is about thoughts, opinions, research, debates, denying ignorance and unveiling the conspiracy of all that we discuss.
There are millions of web sites that ask for your gender when you sign up with them, yet I am always angered by this...It's none of their
