        You’re that politically correct, fat, swarthy, hairy southern European who thinks your race is white and fair featured. Look at yourself first, imbecile.

          Ah Phaedra. Nice mental gymnastics as always. You’re by far the biggest idiot on this site based on just a few of your comments alone.Let’s break down your logic shall we?

          Why would i be so passionate in the first place to debunk common stereotypes if i myself looked stereotypical? That’s right i don’t. I’m half nordic half southern European. My southern european family arent dark and swarthy like you seem to claim. try writing something more intelligent next time, Phaedra. Thats just pathetic.
