    Adrian's comment isn't a false equivalence, it’s a red herring.
  3. Re: The Decline Of The United States of America

    I had to lol at this “study.” For one thing, the authors appear to use political conservatism, especially in foreign policy, as a proxy for their “white racial resentment” metric. The majority of...

    You mean one day we, too, can live like mainland Chinese people? Can’t wait.
  5. Re: The Decline Of The United States of America

    I, for one, welcome our new Chinese overlords. But as excited as I am about copying superior Chinese technology and customs, I really don’t think I can handle full assimilation:

    It isn’t an emotional issue for me (beyond the philosophical sense), it’s an inconvenience with grim implications. You’re right that I normally don’t see the point of including personal anecdotes in...

    I’m fairly certain the level of detail I provided makes shifting the goalposts any further impossible, rhetorically or otherwise.

    Perhaps the most Orwellian example would be that I’ve been asked by my direct superiors at work to make sure I use “gender neutral” greetings and language in correspondence, in case any recipients...

    I am disagreeing with the scope of your statement. The context of the 1.7% figure was to reinforce the idea that these hypothetical intersex people would have no restroom if transgender people were...

    The study I cited estimates the number of children born with DSD, the more precise medical term for words like intersex. Fausto-Sterling’s estimate was originally theorized a long time ago at this...

    It’s actually 0.1%, and that’s according to a newer study whose estimate is much higher than previous.

    Meanwhile, 0.6% of US adults identify as transgender, because again, this is about some...
  12. Re: President Biden's 100 first days in office

    Thing is, it would be extremely difficult and problematic for the Fed to tighten policy at this juncture. I, a random guy with a bachelor’s degree, called it early last year. This was all easily...

  15. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Bit of projection on your part. All I’ve done is state the facts as they are available as the basis for future outcomes based on the established trend. In case you missed it: “Similar policies, even...
  16. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    As far as either the flu or Covid goes, I’m speaking from the position of consensus, so it doesn’t make sense to claim Australia wouldn’t be an outlier, especially since that’s your point of...
  17. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    I did say Australia could be an outlier, but it seems you’re parsing a question of implementation that’s largely rhetorical. The historical conclusions were made based on the flu, hence why I cited...
  18. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    I would imagine the federal level to be key to any “systemic” claims. Only 15% of prisoners overall (14% of black state prisoners) were convicted for a drug offense as the “most serious,” meaning...
  19. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    It’s actually even simpler than that. 99.5% of federal drug offenders in prison were sentenced for trafficking, and 24% of drug convictions involve a gun. This makes sense given those types of...
  20. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    It’s an interesting question. Travel restrictions are generally ineffective beyond the earliest phases of an outbreak, but the flu could have been on a completely different trajectory relative to...
  21. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    The mere existence of racial disparity doesn’t tell us much about the causes. For example, 25% of drug trafficking offenders, 56% of homicide offenders and 29% of non fatal violent crime offenders...

    “Everyone is racist, might as well be racist against whites.” Anti racism, 2020 style.
  24. Re: The latest anti-liberal rant thread (get your daily dose here)

    Of course, because Reagan telling Nixon a racist joke 50 years ago (from which fantasies of premeditated hate crime/murder are conspicuously absent) is totally relevant and equivalent. The most...

    Staking opposite sides of any given issue is the boilerplate US political business model. The lab leak theory was never a conspiracy theory per se. There was credible evidence for a lab origin...
