#Quote
1(on Women Fully Clothed) There's no male-bashing in it at all. I'm so over that. Nobody bitches about their husbands, and it's not real girly, about our vaginas and things.
2(on being a Catholic) I believe because I need to believe, because the black hole of nothingness scares the shit out of me. I need something to hang on to.
