"The spin in the myth is always that they haven't met the right person or it's a character flaw, but I think that from the lens of modernity, it's also possible to say that they are just, that's truly something that they don't want.

And I love romance. I am sitting here, and I have three romance books on my desk that I'm meaning to get through. But even in stories that aren't about romance, there's often a romantic subplot.

And so I think that hopefully that's going to change and I read a wonderful book by I believe her name is Angela Chan called the ace, and that talked a lot about a lot of these things that I highly recommend..

Neighborhoods racked by violence king. Hen was convicted in nineteen ninety nine of grand theft and robbery he completed his sentence and was released from prison in California two thousand three, hey, hav accepted, a plea deal as a teenager for being in a gang and soliciting to commit murder. Juries twice had refused to convict him. Angela Chan with Asian Americans advancing Justice Asian law caucus which had been advocating for pardon.
