    Please do explain the unalterable and un-choosable aspect of "traits".

    I didn't say anything about unalterable, so I don't why you put that in there. I also didn't say anything about un-choosable, so I don't know why you put that in there either.

    I said most traits are not chosen, which they aren't.

    I dunno. Many traits, such as preferences - aren't willfully chosen. I like the color green. I dunno why, I just do. Not sure if I can change that.

    I guess one of my traits is that I like boobs. Very hard to change that.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    you said nothing about un-choosable and yet you say that most aspects of traits are not chosen......

    I'm not sure how this is relevant, but yes. Most anybody can live without anything aside from food and water.

    I do think some are abnormal, others I do not. I mean "abnormal" may not have been the best choice in word.

    I can't choose to forgo green and suddenly like yellow or orange. Same with certain foods I like to eat.

    Have you tried praying to Jesus? If it can cure sexual perversion then I'm sure it can help you with your disgusting relation with secondary colors.
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.
