As regras da atracção ou a falta delas
As regras da atracção. Sempre achei uma certa piada a esta frase, como se o que sentimos por alguém pudesse ter regras, pudesse ser quantificado de alguma forma, ou regido pelas estrelas.

Male-to-female transgender barred from donating plasma

Now, Reynolds, 23, finds herself struggling to pay bills and unable to save up for her gender reassignment surgery because BioLife does not allow male-to-female transgenders to donate plasma, she said.
