I never said that "bonding" can't apply on other levels.
ModSavage actually wrote this best. He spoke of how women,
including his sister (thanks ModSavage for great laugh by the way!),
have this "bond" with Bono/U2 that he couldn't share simply
because he wasn't a woman. And that's true. I don't look at U2
in a sexual manner. However, I can appreciate them on a sensual one.
The issue of "bonding" I spoke of - which was inspired by
ModSavage's first post - was based only on age simply because
that was the topic. However, I think we all agree that people
can bond with U2 or anything else on many, many levels.
