"Z." (tha's me!) and my "trickster" alter ego humbly beg to differ somewhat & "we" claim that "we" are the rarest of all conlangers (besides bein' an economically-endangered species of one)... "we" are: celibate/asexual (temporarily, hehe... ::sings "Hormones De-Ranged" to the tune of "Home on the Range"::), semi-ambidextrous, fuzzy-faced, goggled (I have thick-lensed glasses that make me look like a mad scientist), & BBCI (British-Born Chinese-Indonesian). How's that for rarity, eh? As to GAY & STRAIGHT Conlang Days, IMHO I think this funny & highly absurd. ROTFLMAO I subscribe to the idea that we Higher Primates are just plain SEXUAL, even when we claim to be asexual (William S. Burrouhs said we are bad animals; I add we can _be_ baaaad animals, hehe...sado-masochistic, hormone-driven social animals, hehe...). ::again sings "Hormones De-Ranged" to the tune of "Home on the Range":: IMHO Orientation is situational, but the situation can be life-long for a large, unfortunate majority of sheep - OOPS! I mean peeps [people] ;) ::suddenly remembers to take psych meds & runs off to do so:: Some still believe that what the gods give in genius, gifts and talents, the Fates take from spirit, body and mind...
