and make computers solve funky math problems that simulate things that usually fly, blow up, or go into outer space. My dad told me he could tell that I liked rockets and aeroplanes when I was five years old, so he didn't push me to go into medicine. I did observe a few operations and assisted at more than a few autopsies. Most of the kids I grew up with wanted to be singers or rock stars.

I don't think that's "love" in any way, shape or form. The Inquisition claimed they acted out of "love," but they knew they were just imposing their will by force "The Name Of The Rose" Confession From Torture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iFSTUnf8xQ You have to be a cold, totally detached psychopath to get up every day and ruin lives for no reason.

Imagine if your first thought every day is to decide who to condemn, who to rant against, who to proscribe, eliminate, or destroy. Why? Fear? Shame? Anger? A shark eats because it is hungry. It doesn't hate you. It won't normally take a bite out of you -- unless you just happen to look like what it normally eats if wearing a shiny, sparkly swimsuit or if you look like a seal in the w

It wouldn't work anyway. Many Red states take in more than they pay in taxes, and they couldn't make it economically on their own -- no matter how much they talk about secession.

When you are in a relationship with someone you don't want to be with, it's time for a divorce. Religious fundies and racists want an all-white, all "christian," authoritarian, fascist state surrounded by walls and minefields like North Korea, so let's just give it to them. Cut out the Southeast, cut Florida in half, and let all the fundies and haters move there and get them out

who are genetically and anatomically male but with a vaginal opening or with ambiguous genitalia, and most didn't know they were like this until they were teens. Are you going to exclude them too? How are you going to avoid a "who is fit to be female" aesthetic subjective situation?

Horse paste for COVID is horse poop. You might as well resort to chanting Nirvana songs and burning incense under mistletoe in the light of the full moon.

LW, we're not so far apart on this. But First -- Full Disclosure: I have known a few transpeople. A gender non-conforming gay girl and two trans guys lived in my dorm, one of whom was a classmate who killed himself along with his trans girlfriend in a double suicide. I went to their joint funeral. Later, I worked with both trans male and trans female colleagues, and I've also had a transw

that had scenes from the Holocaust. This was back in the 80s when must-see broadcast TV was still dominant. Later, when I was in school, Yugoslavia broke up and there were scenes of people behind barbed wire on CNN straight out of "Schindler's List" -- only this wasn't a movie. I swore to myself that when my time came, I would not be silent -- and I would do every thing I could

All the "outrage" is about "boys" being "converted" and replacing girls in... sport / pageants / acting or anything they want to scream about, they aren't talking about trans guys -- who face even more difficult medical challenges and ostracism from fundie gynaecologists, etc. This goes back to my point about men wanting to define women so they can control them

While it remains to be seen what will happen with trans athletes (and no one seems to care about trans guys, just trans girls), there is just too much hate. I have tried and tried to understand what motivates these fundies and I can't. I don't want to live in a "same-same-same" world that's like a twisted version of "Leave It To Beaver" or "Sally, Dick, And Jan

More likely than not, Lia Thomas will be banned from competition. She was one of the first, she's an adult, and she essentially came out of nowhere and won championships. But the "victory" will be a Pyrric one for fundies. There are teens alive now who have virtually known no other life except as one living as their innate gender, and your won't know or be able to tell them apa
