In our culture, when we use the words "man" or "woman," we have an inherent mental image of a cisgendered heterosexual white male or female only.

It's pointless to argue with you about this, SC. Dave Chappell says he's "team TERF." He's saying he's %100 on board with radical fems who deny trans women are women, are not female, and should be rejected and denied access to women's spaces. It's the same as saying that black people don't have a right to live where they wish and/or should be segregated against, or fat people a

You seem to be missing the point, SC. When your humour is based on denying another persons' existence, you've gone too far.

https://deadstate.org/jim-bakker-to-his-followers-send-me-1-million-or-theyll-cancel-my-show-in-a-week/ In a somewhat frantic tone on The Jim Bakker Show this week, televangelist Jim Bakker begged his followers for money, saying that if he didn’t pay his bills, his show would soon be taken off the air. “I’ve been told that the network is gonna cancel our broadcast within another week,

If you want to live in a world of conspiracy theories and lies, fine. But you don't have the right to endanger the lives of others because you want to live in a world of lies.

It's now a Pandemic Of The Stubborn And Willfully Ignorant. Thanks to modern scientific research, the groundwork for a successful vaccine was laid years ago and a vaccine was developed relatively quickly. We should be out this by now, but, as I said before, you can lead a person to knowledge, but you can't make them think. We're not dealing for the most part with people who were lied to

Religion? Tribal Loyalty? Does it even matter anymore? If you keep insisting that something isn't real, doesn't exist, or that what you are told isn't true when it actually is, what do you do when their desire to live in an alternative universe threatens your life? https://www.cnn.com/videos/health/2021/10/01/unvaccinated-health-care-intv-gupta-pkg-ac360-dnt-vpx.cnn https://www.bloom

Years ago, you could stay up at night to listen to Art Bell's "Dreamland" radio show and find out about all kinds of crazy people, Greys, Zeta Reticulians, the secret Nazi base in Antarctica, "black helicopters," the Illuminati, the supposedly real life version of the cabal from the X-Files, and so on. Now the inmates want to run the asylum.

Good soundrack by M31 as well. The film is really about the perception of human reality -- not so much as a delusion, but more about taking what we see at face value. It's from an unpublished graphic novel. https://www.comicsbeat.com/that-oblivion-graphic-novel-will-probably-never-be-published/?amp

One thing the article did mention is how Mormonism isn't just a fringe Rocky Mountain west religion anymore and has expanded all over the USA. Most of the Mormons I've met back east know people think it's a cult, more aware of the outside world beyond the Zion Curtain, more non-Mormon social contacts, etc and aren't so pushy about it. Things Change. If there were a lot more Mormons, I'd say
