“Sex: n: either the male or female division of a species, especially as differentiated with reference to the reproduce functions.” That’s the definition of sex, the cookie cutter dictionary definition.

A Voice for Me: No, You Cannot Steal A Voice

As you may recall, I was “bloody pissed off” about the Steubenville Rape story but didn’t weigh in.
