Yay victim blaming!

A layperson can only hypothesize illness in a person, perhaps to seek insight into his behavior, which can inform decision-making. You are correct that only a professional can diagnose. It’s important to point this out. Read more
What’s “TERF” but another slur invented to crush dissent? I first encountered the term here, when I posted the Keira Bell interview hoping to learn what trans people think about detransitioners.
“Intersex” people are either male or female too, like the rest of us.
Yeah, my mom says "Who'll I call when someone is breaking into my house?" Which prompts me to wonder just how often law enforcement interrupts an active home invasion. Seems like I'd hear more about it if it happened a lot.
The AMA invests in tobacco too.

You’re right. It’s the state using public dollars to push a corporate investment agenda.
“Efforts to protect the integrity of women’s sports” are NOT “violent transphobia.” Such wild-eyed hyperbole may be fun on social media but doesn’t help trans people at all.
Thank you for understanding and restating the point that “a lot of us” have been making about rich people and their charities. I’ll try to rid myself of ideology and find some common sense.

“Without nuclear we will never get past using carbon based fuels for power" is the industry's main talking point and is worse than untrue. We can get into that if you care to.
Where are you getting your information from? Nuclear IS the most expensive way to make power, even with public subsidy, and is so unsafe—according to the insurance industry, whose business depends on knowing these things—that nuke plants can’t get private insurance coverage.
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows how “carbon dioxide emissions from the US electricity sector can be reduced by up to 80% relative to 1990 levels, without an increase in the levelized cost of electricity. The reductions are possible with current technologies and without electrical storage.” Read more
