Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

LOL. Chapter 23, in which Jerry 'Rainman' Coyne discovers Hemant Mehta is a backstabbing biatch. Plus sundry duck photos: https://whyevolutionistrue.com/2021/11/10/wednesday-hili-dialogue-353/ I fucking despise atheist activism, lock, stock, and barrel. "Why Evolution Is True" is generally a great ...

Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

Rekieta panel I sometimes peek in at that chat in the hours before broadcast to see what's new, and saw that Mykeru Media had posted a joke. I wonder how things finally resolved out of his job ... It was looking pretty dire, as best I can recall. Now there's a blast from the past; was kinda wonderi...

Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

"you're supposed to keep your woman in a perpetual state of fantasy - about her age, her weight, the size of her ass ..." Or, in particular, whether she still qualifies as a female and a woman once she hits menopause ... Probably why "Hunny Bunny" - among many other women - wound up blocking me on ...

Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

Probably why "Hunny Bunny" - among many other women - wound up blocking me on Twitter How do you know that they were women? Because many of them - Hunny Bunny, Maya Forstater, Helen Joyce, all of whom have blocked me - have provided fairly tangible evidence of having or having had husbands and kids...

Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

I saw Les Misérables in London tonight for the first time in 20 years. I've got children now, and the world has changed. It struck me very differently. Seem to recollect reading bits of it many years ago. Interesting tale and theme: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Mis%C3%A9rables#Characters <snip...

Re: Steerzing in a New Direction...

We still have some fun together. It is worth working on. I don't see it as moribund. I do see it as "pragmatic". Mine was unsalvageable in the long run.

"why there's some value in clearly differentiating between the biological and the psychological" "biologically male", "psychologically male". Done. I didn't need to change the meaning of any commonly used words. The only way to win this game is not to play. Spit the hook now! Aw, you're no fun ... ...
