Dear, Dear Gentlemen,

It has come to our attention that you harbor some misconceptions about us and our intentions, ones which we most fervently hope to dissuade you of, because these misunderstandings and falsehoods are preventing us from working together towards a more balanced society. Allow us to reassure you:

 1. We do not wish to castrate you. We have no desire to have your testicles in jars of formaldehyde on our nightstands.
