What do you think?


I think that it's great to see this level of insight on TF


Of course, many (maybe most) people have firmly locked on to these social constructions and associations with devoted intensity. In their minds that self-grouping has become almost indistinguishable from who they are. In fact it takes a lot to not do that as almost everything from the official narrative, to entertainment, art, the most popular religions reinforce that as being "the way it is."
