I am Shocked, Shocked

September 03rd, 2014 by Man SL

Givens fils points out that sexual violence is sexual, in addition to being violent.

For stating the obvious truth, he is taken to task by the usual suspects.

Staglea’s Law: The more true and the more obvious the statement, the more offensive the statement.
