i weren't making one! i was asking questions in a confrontational way because you pagwats don't pay attention otherwise. heh.

also, to clarify: because i'm a dipshit and am thinking about an argument, authors escape (i can't even friggin find the book!) in which the main line of argument was that oppression was the main object of their argument for PR.

so there ya have it. the ole snit girl didn't do her homework and is a ignorant flaming turd!
