It was on the inside all along

By Andrew Pacutho: Ok! Men are dogs. Low down, no good, SOB's, waste of space. They are cheats and wife beaters, absentee fathers and child molesters. Heck they are rapists, hoodlums and no-good-low-down-mind-in-the-gutter weak a** bums with no money in their pockets and no vision for the future, perpetually washed in booze. And then…..?
