If there is a girl cut shirt I'd actually buy it and wear it. Just sayin'!
Also stop being sexist everyone, both the ridiculous statements and
over the top white knighting are equally offensive :P

During the course of a degenerating discussion, however, things were said by me and others, and a tangent formed which drew away from the original discussion at hand.

Needless to say, I have always thought highly of, and have always appreciated, Nathan's continuous efforts working with the California LoCo.
