    Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot (D.) on Friday expressed dismay that people are "still" meeting in private spaces but defended her choice to appear without a mask at a giant gathering of Joe Biden supporters. Lightfoot justified the flouting of social distancing guidelines by telling MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle that "everyone was wearing masks"—a claim disproved by Lightfoot's own video—and saying Saturday's celebration came at a time "when we actually do need to have relief and come together." The mayor tweeted a video of her partying with other Biden supporters and telling them, "You should absolutely celebrate this victory and savor every...

    CBS Dallas ^ | November 13, 2020
    Country singer Doug Supernaw, who had hits in the early ’90s with “I Don’t Call Him Daddy,” and “Reno,” died on Friday, Nov. 13. He was 60 years old. A representative from his management team said Supernaw passed away in Texas. The Houston-raised singer announced in February 2019 that he had lung and bladder cancer and he entered hospice care in October after the cancer spread. After working on oil rigs and as a concert promoter in Texas, Supernaw moved to Nashville in the late ’80s to work as a staff writer for a music publishing company, but moved back...

  • Claims about politics (speculative) (half of white liberals under 30 have mental health condition)

    Marginal Revolution ^ | October 8, 2020 | Tyler Cowen
    First, I don’t think “liberals” is exactly the right word here, but I’m not going to relitigate that one now. Second, as I’ve argued in my The Age of the Infovore (and in some forthcoming writings you haven’t seen yet), I don’t think “mental health condition” is appropriate in this context. Furthermore, what are called “mental health conditions” often are sources of insight and can be positively correlated with talent. That all said, I don’t think you can understand modern American discourse, most of all social media, without recognizing that “the intellectual Left” has higher neuroticism — as defined by...

    The final frontier is continuing to bring audiences inclusive characters played by members of underrepresented communities in Hollywood. The third season of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery will introduce the first non-binary and transgender characters in Gene Roddenberry’s iconic franchise that celebrates diversity via a sci-fi lens. Blu del Barrio will make their screen acting debut as the non-binary character Adira, who is highly intelligent with a confidence and self-assurance well beyond their years. They will find a new home on the USS Discovery and form an unexpected bond with Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Dr. Hugh...
  • Elevated rates of autism, other neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diagnoses, and autistic traits in transgender and gender-diverse individuals

    Nature ^ | August 7, 2020 | Varun Warrier et al.
    Abstract: It is unclear whether transgender and gender-diverse individuals have elevated rates of autism diagnosis or traits related to autism compared to cisgender individuals in large non-clinic-based cohorts. To investigate this, we use five independently recruited cross-sectional datasets consisting of 641,860 individuals who completed information on gender, neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diagnoses including autism, and measures of traits related to autism (self-report measures of autistic traits, empathy, systemizing, and sensory sensitivity). Compared to cisgender individuals, transgender and gender-diverse individuals have, on average, higher rates of autism, other neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diagnoses. For both autistic and non-autistic individuals, transgender and gender-diverse individuals...

    New data from the Center for Disease Control indicates that more than 25% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 experienced suicidal thoughts in the month of June, an elevated statistic likely a result of the coronavirus epidemic. 11% of the Americans in that age category thought “seriously” about suicide, a large contingent of the demographic. “Symptoms of anxiety disorder and depressive disorder increased considerably in the United States during April–June of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019,” the CDC reported on Thursday. The data indicates that a massive 47% of Americans ages 18 to...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s niece Mary sure seemed happy to be in the company of her “monster” of an uncle as she smiled for a picture sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. The photo, published by the Daily Mail on Wednesday, was reportedly taken in April 2017 when the family celebrated the 80th birthday of the president’s sister, Maryanne, just months after he was inaugurated.

    Maryland Republican Rep. Andy Harris says Washington, DC won’t decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, cacti and plants on his watch. Harris told The Post he’s appalled that drug reform activists submitted on Monday what they say is enough signatures to get an initiative on the November ballot making natural hallucinogens the lowest law enforcement priority. Harris said he will force a House Appropriations Committee vote next week to stop it, using the power of Congress over DC’s budget.

    Minneapolis has elected two black transgender representatives to its City Council, adding to what advocacy groups have described as a banner election for transgender people in public office. Andrea Jenkins easily won the race Tuesday night for an open seat in South Minneapolis, with roughly 73 percent of the vote. Jenkins, a 56-year-old poet and historian who transitioned in her 30s, spent years as a policy aide to two previous council members in the same ward. Phillipe Cunningham’s victory took longer because of Minneapolis’ instant-runoff voting system. But by Wednesday afternoon, the city announced Cunningham — a 29-year old transgender...

    Cartoon Network — a company that’s on the Traitors of America master list — has gone all-in on degenerate propaganda. They have been pushing the gay agenda down the throats of kids for some time now, and they have no means of letting up. In fact, they’ve become even more bold and brazen in recent times, with their latest tweet promoting pronoun propaganda to kids. The tweet was published on June 25th, 2020, with plenty of support from the mentally ill people that populate Twitter.

    'Our hate speech policy prohibits videos which assert that someone’s sexuality or gender identity is a disease or a mental illness,' YouTube said in a statement. Information provided exclusively to The Federalist shows YouTube removed a Heritage Foundation video featuring testimony from a former transgender-identifying woman for violating the company’s hate speech policy. YouTube confirmed the decision in a Thursday email to The Federalist.Now Heritage is fighting back with a new video, released first to The Federalist, in which Federalist contributor Walt Heyer doubles down.“I said that children suffering from gender dysphoria should not be encouraged to try experimental hormones...

    JK Rowling had been tweeting warm, gushing messages to children who submitted drawings for her new book –“Eight? How can this have been done by an eight-year-old?!” – when, abruptly, her Twitter feed took a sharp swerve sideways. She shared an article about period poverty in the developing world and Covid-19, tacking on her own, snarky take. “‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?” It was an odd way to launch the latest salvo in the most toxic of culture wars. If you failed to recognise...

"But I started seeing some other transgender people getting pregnant that and I started exploring the idea and unlearning the internalized transphobia that told me I couldn't be a man who could birth a child. "A part of me was me feeling as though I shouldn't want to carry a child because of internalized beliefs about what it means 'to be a man' and that somehow carrying a child invalidated my gender."...

    MONTREAL -- On Sunday night, afIt's clearly not good for business, says a manager of Steve’s Music, a Montreal institution. But don’t get him wrong, he says: it was all worth it. “Without any questions whatsoever, it's a noble demonstration and it's clearly far overdue,” says Lenny Lanteigne. It was “unfortunate that a few hooligans turned it into a free-for-all,” he says. “It is awful. But next to what some people are going through, this is nothing.” The store’s insurance company is currently reviewing the damage, and Lanteigne isn’t sure yet how it’ll all turn out financially, he said.

  • Your Surgeon Is Probably a Republican, Your Psychiatrist Probably a Democrat (and more than two-thirds of Infectious Disease specialists are Democrat)

    We know that Americans are increasingly sorting themselves by political affiliation into friendships, even into neighborhoods. Something similar seems to be happening with doctors and their various specialties. New data show that, in certain medical fields, large majorities of physicians tend to share the political leanings of their colleagues, and a study suggests ideology could affect some treatment recommendations. In surgery, anesthesiology and urology, for example, around two-thirds of doctors who have registered a political affiliation are Republicans. In infectious disease medicine, psychiatry and pediatrics, more than two-thirds are Democrats. The conclusions are drawn from data compiled by researchers at...

You have a dedicated group of sexual weirdos determined to radically alter a society not for the society’s benefit, but for spite. The aim actually seems to be to PUNISH the society not only for all that childhood bullying, but for refusing to acknowledge their utter fabulousness in the present day and age. ...
