A little touchy aren't we? Besides Hate me? that's kind of extreme. I just wanted to know what it's like to be a typical male, so maybe I'd have some insight into my boyfriend.

There is no such thing as the "typical" male. That's just a stereotype.

  yes it is a bit extreme and i apoligize. but a typical male? explain to me what a typical male is. if you said you wanted to be your boyfriend for a day it wouldn't have annoyed the fuck out of me but catagorizing a gender all together like that is retarded. i'd hate to be slapped in the same catagory as your boyfriend which you've done w/ your "typical male" shit. unless by typical you mean having a penis and sweating profusely from the ass crack, but i think you're talking more along the lines of what one thinks.

if you want to know what your "typical male" thinks, go watch The Man Show and you'll find out that you annoy the hell out of him but the sex is prolly good. or you can stop slapping us all into the same catagory and realize that we're all pretty and unique snowflakes.

  I meant typical in the sense of heterosexual, has a 9-5 job, not a millionarie, likes his coffee black kind of guy. I wasn't trying to say insensitve prick. I just would think it would be intresting to understand what it's like to be guy. Like peeing standing up, now that would be an experience.

  Actually women can pee standing up as well.


There are certain techniques and tools.


I'll try to look it up.

Do you say the same, when someone tells you a joke about blondes?

  i chose roman senetor, partly because i took two years of latin and studied the roman culture, (and fell in love it with a fury) and i like the idea of being part of the beginnings of a republic/democracy. I also like that time period in the past because they were decently clean compared to others!

(merry christmas)
