To be frank, our Polo is Indian-made Polo, which has notorious panel gaps Read more

I watched this movie back in Sydney, AUS 2008. Read more

WNBA is one of the example of how not to over-representate one demographic, despite all of them being minorities. It is dominated by toxic hetero-hating lesbians with strong bullying culture. The criticism on “toxic masculinity” rings hollow when they exactly copied masculine behaviour to win “respect”. So I agree Read more

You know, listening to this kind of backtalk is like listening to a millionaire crying for his lost free happy meal coupon.
