1. You are my brother in spirit, and that makes more of a difference than most things I can think of. Therefore, you HAVE advanced the race, because I WILL procreate someday, and if not for you and a few others, I might not have. So you have ALREADY advanced the race.
2. In response to the last line...I don't care what you think. *I* will have something to say. And I will make the world my audience.
I love you, m'man.
