Can't she self publish her books? There is Amazon and Hulu. She can also do a patreon and post her work there. And when those companies come under fire for "platforming" her and bow to public pressure? When her web host or security company is forced to remove her content? When she builds ...

What I don't get is why some people think that it's better if everyone has guns. Well, guns are one of the few tools that somewhat level the playing field when it comes to self defense; it doesn't matter how big and strong you are if the person you're attacking has a gun, and if you're not big and ...

I live here and i know the truth, there is such as thing as "driving while black" as i have witnessed it first hand. repeatedly. Yes, unfortunately there is still some vestigial racism around, which I've never denied, but the country is not this white supremacist theocracy that the foreig...

Where is the medical establishment willing to "operate" on kids as young as 13??? Surely, not very many places, if any??? From the NYT: The World Professional Association for Transgender Health, an international group of gender experts who write best practices for the field, had been plan...

Pence would end up signing a revised version of the bill.


What was revised, and did it actually have anything to do with this blowhard and his threats? There's no details there, and the wording is slippery.

If New Yorkers want to vote with their dollars and fund her campaign, good for her - as long as she uses the money for what she says she’s going to, unlike the orange guy and bannon etc. If you actually look into the civil charges, what she's alleging are basically standard practices in NYC real es...

And what exactly makes you think this is a 'delusional' view? Living in this country and having seen enough of it to know that "America is largely a white-only conservative christian theocracy already" and "Black people are largely restricted to black majority urban areas in several ...

This story is actually behind the curve quite a bit, this has been going on for a while now, it's just recently starting to get media coverage. IIRC, when I joined my current gun club in 2020 white males were actually in the minority in my orientation group of 12 or so, and that was completely norma...

I'm pretty used to this stuff from Democrats at this point, but as this article points out, it's particularly galling when the same people spreading these lies are also hyperventilating about "misinformation", making it very clear that what they're actually opposed to is dissenting views. ...

Might as well, even if your hourly rate is pretty cheap they're a bargain compared to the time you put in trolling here. Every time you put them on, you can imagine pretend Christians somewhere being angry even though they have no way of knowing you own them, or even that you exist.

(I myself wanted to be a boy when I was little. In my teens, I felt like I was neither a boy nor a girl; I probably would have called myself "nonbinary" had that term been around back then. By my early twenties, I came to regard myself as a gender-nonconforming woman.) Do you ever wonder ...
