Ok sweetie, I actually read your comment about women in FF, however, ( and be it known, i did reply to it), I think its time you start replying to the thread you posted or please, for crying out loud, delete the post already. EVERYONE in there nearly, is really thinking its past due, considering this post is the same as several others. If you at least posted in there a couple times while its being beaten to death, I think others wouldn't have such a problem, but it appears as though you abandoned your own post. I do hope this finds you and yours well, please be safe out there...
