I think everyone just needs to chill. BA is honest and sarcastic at the same time. Not only is he both of these things, but he's also consistent with both. Take a deep breath and relax. It's not like he's beating you up on the playground after school.
If you want to be a chick, a dude, a tent, or a velociraptor be my guest, but if you choose the last one you bet your ass I will have a spaz-12 to your face.
