I see the yahoos who are unable to to have reasonable discussion with people that happen to have a different opinion are still around. Flagging posts that make a reasonable point as 'dumb' just because you disagree with them is emblematic of the partisan divides that are fracturing society. It is only slightly less insulting than calling people names because they do not share your opinion on controversial topics.

This isn't a controversial topic.

If a straight woman wants to have sex with a trans-woman, it means she actually sees him as a man, which isn't how she wants to be seen.  The relationship would be based on, from the trans-woman's perspective, her being misgendered.  At best the straight woman is into the trans-woman because she doesn't understand the trans-woman's identity... or worse perhaps she has a fetishized view of them.

Perhaps she wants to have sex with him/her/whatever based on first impressions without knowing them. That does happen you know, regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual preference, etc. Peoples opinions change after they get to know someone, in all sorts of ways.

That's a cop out, they are muti billion dollar business, not bulletin boards. Even bulletin board owners are accountable for what is posted.

Bulletin board owners take down notices that they see or were notified and disagree with, they have zero, nada, nil accountability for what is posted.

You are demanding that google take responsibility for what some right wing nutcase says, that itself is nuts.

You didn’t make reasonable points. You made highly misinformed points and keep pushing denier propaganda. Like it even needs to be pointed out again how stupid and unhelpful your stance of radical skepticism is. We can and do know things; you just refuse to acknowledge not only the science but also the evidence in front of your face.

it is simply not possible to make any claim about the likelihood of major consequences from climate change.
Wow.

A buddy told me recently he pays 15 bucks a pack now. I quite just before they hit 5. I've saved a ton. I spend a portion on single malt which is far healthier. ;)

15 bucks a pack.  That's insane.  I used to smoke a pack a day, and so did my wife.  We would be spending ~$1000/month on them now.

Edit>  I see MH already made that point.
