Default Re: Return to Gender 101

We don't all have boring or completely Anglo-Saxon names. My oldest brother is Thomas Salvatore but they only threatened to name my brother Barry Guiseppe Pasquale O'Keefe so he'd have a chance to be pope. Most of us have Irish names, though really only one of the girls does. My brother Kelly was named before it became a common name for girls and, oddly, it was his middle name James that he always hated.
"freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order."
