    WOW~ I really enjoy listening to you ladies. However, I must say that I was Highly Offended by the Stereotype Comment. Somethings are just not meant to be said out loud. What is even more offensive is the fact that you choose not to edit out even after remorse was shown and editing was brought up.. Not. Cool. At. All
