Low Integrity Poster,

Would you like me to explain to you why you lack the emotional ability to engage in normal conversation/non-abusive interactions with the Big Kids?(It has everything to do with Genetic Mutations at your Conception, and compounded by your disturbing sexuality issues from what Uncle Daddy did to you)
