    That is your mental illness talking.
    Alan Cumming looks like what he’s.
    Scottish.
    Just curious as to what you think Scottish people generally look like?
    I’m assuming you think they’re all blonde haired and blue eyed, or red-haired and blue eyed?
    In the real world of Scotland and Wales outside of the realm of mental retardation and mental illness, Cumming’s look is literally commonplace and not even remotely out of the norm.
    You’re sick and only spreading misinformation in your posts.
    Get help before it’s too late.

      You are not going to last long, here, thank god.

      It’s always funny to find a newbie who comes in who can not read the room, responding to years’ old posts with insults.

        Can’t see anything at all that is out of line challenging rank ignorance in a forum poster.
        I’m a WP site owner myself and would never allow half of these comments on my site to stand, let alone stand nearly wholly unchallenged.

        If a site bans posters for challenging rank ignorance and misinformation, what good would it be to be a member of said site?
        Instead of threatening me with a ban you might want to perhaps challenge those “years old posts” that are nearly all left alone to fester like a fart in a windowless room.
        Why would I want to be a long term member of a site that has posters that ignore idiotic racism/antisemitism, and the rare times a poster does call them out someone comes out from under a rock to threaten me with a ban for challenging it?
        I could make my own celeb genealogy WP site if I cared to.
        This site is not exactly hard to out do.
        Not my thing though.
        Get a grip pal, your moral compass is damaged or totally broken.
