About Me:
I am 80 yrs old. A Skinnarian behaviorist. I must have learned a few thing in the 80 yrs I have been on this earth. Its interesting how other cultures value older people. In our culture older people are looked down on. It maybe makes some sense as most people live out there lives not learning much more after the very early yrs.
Age
77-82
Why are you here?
to find some like minded people.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
I played with myself ie masterbated and went to confession over and over. I finally said
this nuts. I confess over and over and do the same thing over and over and it does not seem wrong to begin with.
