It's conceivable that somewhere, somehow, there is probably at least  
one woman (perhaps an FTM transsexual) with an interest in penile  
implants.

> a gay woman is not going to steal your husband;

Ahh, attraction is a complicated in and of itself.  Perhaps she  
thought she was gay, but until hitherto hadn't been around a guy she  
felt attracted to?

> a black person wouldn't be interested in self-tanning lotion;

I can imagine that a black person suffering from vitiligo probably  
doesn't enjoy losing their pigmentation.  If self-tanning lotion  
helped (probably wouldn't), I can imagine that somebody might be  
interested in it.

Some liberal christians de-literalize the bible and apply strong  
analytical criticism to the historical roots of judeo-christianity,  
yet still self-identify as christians.  Go figure.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is to agree that to any general  
"rule" of human behavior, there are countless exceptions - were are  
quite complex.
