Virginity and Celibacy[edit]

Pro-Wizardry or Neutral[edit]

  • Listen to me, Satou. Women. . . they aren't people. No, they're not normal humans. In fact, it might not be an exaggeration to say that they're unbelievably close to being inhuman monsters.

  • The life of the sane, average man was dull, worse than death. There seemed to be no possible alternative. Education also seemed to be a trap. The little education I had allowed myself had made me more suspicious. What were doctors, lawyers, scientists?
