I am a real male. I don't know what a real man is or rather, I think there are different kinds of men. I guess on a sliding scale, (since I think in pictures) say from 1 - 50, 1 being all male and 50 being all female, I'd be at around 40? Depends

The neeurochemical concept of iit being sn addictive behavior makes sense. After all, I think it's probably safe to say to the last man every man here on this forum has PTSD, so we all have altered neurochemistry. it becomes this self-perpetuating
