I guess when Chuck Norris is your colleague you get scared of everything.

P.S. Hormones in milk and beef are making our adults into fucking assholes.

i'm calling bullshit on that. i only did 3 seconds of research but i'm still calling bullshit.


Phytohormones (plant hormones), particularly phytoestrogens, have generated a great deal of interest in the consumer and scientific community for a number of years. Phytoestrogens, or plant estrogens, are very weak estrogens that occur naturally in many foods and herbs. The chemical structure of phytoestrogens is similar but not identical to the estrogens produced by the body.

The body is not able to convert phytoestrogens into estrogen, however, anecdotal evidence indicates there may be benefits from phytoestrogens for women during perimenopause because of weak estrogenic-like qualities. Some women report relief from minor symptoms such as hot flashes, anxiety, and irritability.

Cheryl asked why this was even up on the site.
I said something about ignorant and bigotted people being good examples of how NOT to think and live ... or something.
You and I and our circle of friends might be smart and nice and tolarant of others, but just because we extend those olive branches and friendly handshakes it doesn't mean that we'll always be met with the same.
Love your neighbor even if he's a dickhead?
I'll try, I guess.
