Haha did you read that article? That was published by a panel composed entirely of DOCTORS apparently.
Course the fact that "Ph.D" appears after their names means nothing I suppose....
This whole movement is just a double-standard and completely biased.
Ok. I think I've heard just about enough.
Why don't YOU tell ME what it's gonna take for you to change your views?
On second thought, don't. I already know the answer:
The only thing that would get you to admit you're full of shit is if the hand of God that you don't believe in came down and slapped the Ego off your face.
This is BULLSHIT.
Yes. I pull an article with SIX doctors, citing research a mile long. But Pox says otherwise. Course, who are a bunch of chicks to argue with him? It's obviously just a biased female ploy. The fact that they're all DOCTORS is just a clever ruse to disguise their findings.
Btw what does this have to do with the effects of a kid seeing an eyefull of tits again?
It has to do with your own bias, and the fact that you reject anything that you're uncomfortable with, regardless of how scientifically secure it actually is.
Proteas is entirely correct, you're trolling. You ignored the fact the article is written by Doctors, well sourced, and coming from a more than repudable site.
The only reason I can possibly see you denying something about as scientifically sound as fucking gravity is if you were just trying to be a complete dick, trolling the boards looking to infuriate people.
So instead of continuing, I'm just gonna list the research the article cites, so everyone else can see just how deficient your argument really is. Cheers asshat.
Once again, the article that you find is bullshit.
From the APA, written by 6 doctorates.
