People not made from desire are a bit like salt with no food, or something

Altruism vs Vigilantism

Sure its altruistic if you go through the all the approved organisations,

but what about the poor misunderstood guys going around trying to donate sperm or provide fertility assistance as anonymous private citizens...

Who WAS that masked man ??

Anon - just because -
