It seems to me that even though Fred has a lot of shit in his life like anyone else, he's not really interested in telling us about it (besides anything sculpture related). That's not what he's here for. That's why when someone like lilly says some serious stuff about her past, fred doesn't know what to do with that information. He's just here to promote Assyrian unity and not cultivate some relationships beyond what happens here. I know Assyrians are in some way all united, but as we know that unity can be kind of flimsy. Political unity can only be so cohesive...what would be wonderful fred is if you shut up and let the people who care about you become closer to you without you stepping all over them with your punny words. You always say that women are so much better than men blah blah blah...then let's see that. You don't have to be this callous ass when someone tells you shit about their life. Ifyou don't care to know about it, then politely say so...but don't assume things about their personality. When lilly said all she did about her life, it's not like the Assyrian who chimes, 'what about simele.' Personally, and i'll say this again, what keeps me coming here is not so much the quest for unity but for the fact that i like the people here. i know i like you fred, and i know that a bunch of other people here do...and maybe you don't know what to do with that. Maybe it's easier for you to make a joke and play with words and then log off your computer...but that can be insensitive and mean. At least consider what i'm saying here and don't joke your way out of it, please? for the sake of all the women in the world who really like you for who you are?
