“Can you name one thing that a Mexican has invented?” Are you really so stupid as to believe that Mexican people have invented nothing and that they are not part of the supposedly superior Western culture you tout, or were you just counting on an audience of literature experts in South Korea not to immediately be able to answer such a ridiculous and racially charged question so you could continue to belch your putrid and poorly formulated version of discrimination publicly? Do you imagine that expressing yourself through labels such as "butch-dyke 'woman'," which attacks both the appearance and sexuality of another, does more than expose you as a disgusting person more obsessed with spreading his denigration of virtually the entire population of the world than offering an honest foray into academics? Even a cursory examination of your 'philosophy' demonstrates you to be a degenerate, purposefully ignorant of the roots of the Western culture.
