Raycyst


(4 stars)

C.M cordwainer is an old white male. We should immediately marginalize anything he has to say. Corwaining is a raycyst profession that oppressed BIPOCs. There are no BIPOC cordwainers. Never trust a cordwainer. Also, this cordwainer fellow had children, and is thereby contributing to Anthropogenic Global Climate change to this day. Say no to chordwainers and instead buy all your audio tales from Jeff Bezos.
