    you do realize, of course, that someone is going to now feel compelled to start a thread about when a life isn't worth saving? i don't know why i feel this coming, but don't be surprised when a new abortion thread starts. i just hope that whoever starts it takes the time to consider that the religious right thinks our souls look like that and would argue a similar fate for lgbt people.

    so...

    THINK, whoever you are, before you start that conversation...

    Not sure if the first one is a scam or not... looks like they started lubricating the skin. This one, however, looks more like the textbook example http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ijpn/vol2n1/harlequin.xml

    I recall a TV feature on an adult guy here, though his was probably another form of ichthyosis. He was called a syokoi, which is our term for a merman, since he really did resemble a merman - scaled skin, slanted eyes, wide lips, and webbed fingers and toes.

    I seriously just sickened and very saddened by this. It's heart-breaking. Makes you think how truly lucky we are.
