Best Answer

Clever girl ;-) my agenda is exposing our hypocrisy. I feel like we present ourselves as individualistic because we tend to have tattoos and **** alot. But if everyone is doing it how much if an individual can you be?

Best Answer

I hate tattoos also...

Best Answer

I don't hate them, but I don't have one though. I was just using it as an example of something that is suppose to represent our "individualism".
P.S. I hope you don't think I was implying you are a velociraptor with my "clever girl" remark.

No just frustrated with hypocrisy. I admit I wrote a manipulative question.
