butterfantastic asked: Why are you annoyed at us 'defending our balls'. Is there a reason for us not to? Are you jealous that us men are comfortable opening our legs, while you don't for some reason? Lastly, why don't you open your legs? Instead of trying to 'take space away from our women', I am fine with any women opening up her legs if she wants to feel comfortable.

Dear sir,

This is awesome! Now ”Men Defending Their Balls: A Superpoem" has a title line (line 13, for those interested). There is, of course, no way to answer your question, but I will nonetheless say again to you, the void: I have balls. I have them right now. I have had them the whole time.

Sincerely,

The editor, MTUTMSotT

disasturbation asked: I've always assumed it was an evolutionary thing related to male genitals, but maybe not. For women, is it physically strenuous and painful to keep the legs together when sitting? For me, it's like holding my arms out for a long time or holding my legs in the air while sitting. It gets to be exhausting before long to do it by will. It's not so bad if space is forcing my legs together. Do women experience this sensation as well?

And I’ve always assumed this poem would stop growing at some point, but it’s showing no signs.
