Then I gave up and settled with my passion and respect for the other gender: "So I just gave up my logical reasoning and decided to love the girls and their female 4-way category."
Nothing has changed for me — except we are now facing a similar situation, and we are about to miss another golden opportunity.
Kids and teenagers and their parents on 4-way teams have caught my attention — and my full support — since the first wind tunnels were used... (more)
