    You don't say?

    However, the second link is from The National Review, which I wasn't familiar with...apparently it's a pretty conservative site, so you can take that as you will. And now that I've re-read the article, it sounds more like the LGBT stuff could have been speculation on the author's part as opposed to fact. But AOC blowing off Bernie in-part due to the Rogan endorsement appears to indeed be a thing, and the LGBT stuff is legit speculation 'cause that is something that Rogan is very well-known for.

    *EDIT* Holy shit, National review is pretty fucked up. I had no idea.

  2. AOC seems to mean well and she's clearly very capable and intelligent, but not endorsing a Presidential candidate because someone else you don't agree with on a few topics ALSO endorses that Presidential candidate is immature, short sighted, and outright ridiculous.

    I have a hard time believing this isn't all overblown, but if it's not, then I've met middle school girls who have their shit more together.


  3. It's blown out of proportion. She did a lot of campaigning for him earlier in the year and hit the time in her schedule where she had to handle her own responsibilities. His campaign hitting the skids certainly didn't help sway her to think she had to rearrange things.

  4. So I called it? Interesting.

    HuffPo is for rich libs who want to remain rich libs, nobody gets paid to write for that site.

    Chances are if something is only sourced by Nat Review and HuffPo, it's strictly op-ed bullshit for the cocktail party set. They're directly connected by the KCRW Left Right and Center radio show, they're all best friends.

    You actually called nothing. "Made up" means that it's non-existent. You asked "according to where?" I delivered sources. Sorry if they were from sites that you don't care for.

  6. I mean did she rescind her endorsement because of Rogan, or didnít she?

    Edit: Itís all over multiple news outlets so it sounds legit. But heís not actually in the running anymore so who cares? Theyíre arguing and damaging each otherís reps for a participation ribbon lulz.

    You're not a bad person because you recognize that children aren't adults and some people are stronger than other people.
    You fucking nazi sympathizer.

    This isnt specific to her though. That has been an emerging problem with the left for 20, 30 years. Maybe longer. There isnt a unifying goal and many in each micro group buy into ideological purity.

    The left isnt like the right, whom will share a bed with a rapist and thief if they will wear the team colors and bring home the championship.

    Eeeeehhhhh, the problem with this is that a person will have better results the sooner they transition. Your bones physically change during puberty. If someone mtf can get ahead of that, they will have a cleaner transition. Or, wait until 50, transition, look like a Monty python sketch character and shoot themselves in a bathroom of Applebees because a positive self image is not unobtainable.

    So I understand parents that want to start asap because they are trying to prevent something more tragic later.

    And do we really care about an even playing field in sports? Really really? If we do, why do we let shitty football teams play good ones? Have you seen a top sec school play a bad one? Not even in the same league with each other, but we pretend it's fair.

    If we really cared, why don't we have weight classes in football, basketball and football? How many asian and white players are being kept out of the NBA because they cant match the physical power of the top 1% of other groups?

    Why is it ok to built one team over here with the best of the best but then go to another sport and say "no, this same practice isnt fair"

    That's making the assumption that a child is capable of making an irreversible decision regarding their physical development that will affect them for the rest of their life. Or that there isn't a growing history of young people transitioning and then completely regretting it later.

    Not saying that there aren't plenty of trans people who said that they knew they were trans from a very early age - there are - and I'm not saying that kids should or shouldn't have access puberty blockers in the right situations. I'm just saying that it's a practice that should, at the very least, be seriously questioned.

    And do we really care about an even playing field in sports? Really really? If we do, why do we let shitty football teams play good ones? Have you seen a top sec school play a bad one? Not even in the same league with each other, but we pretend it's fair.

    So you're saying that we shouldn't separate sports by weight, skill, or sex at all, and everyone should be allowed to compete with everyone?

    Honestly, it's pointless having this discussion; it went nowhere the last time we tried it.
