Her water had broken. By the time she arrived at the hospital, she had lost too much amniotic fluid for her son to survive -- but hospital staff didn't tell her that. read more
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a horrifying bill Wednesday that will let the state take transgender minors away from their families if they are receiving gender-affirming care. The new law will allow the state to take custody of a child if they have been "subjected to or [are] threatened with being subjected to" gender-affirming care, which includes puberty blockers and hormone replacement therapy. Florida courts could modify custody agreements from a different state if the minor is likely to receive gender-affirming care in that second state. The text refers to gender-affirming care as "sex-reassignment prescriptions or procedures" and qualifies this care as a form of "physical harm."
A detainee held in the US prison camp at Guantnamo Bay who was used as a human guinea pig in the CIA's post-9/11 torture program has produced the most comprehensive and detailed account yet seen of the brutal techniques to which he was subjected.
Deborah Dorbert's son Milo died in her arms on March 3, shortly after he was born, just as her doctors had predicted he would. "He gasped for air a couple of times when I held him," said Dorbert, 33. "I watched my child take his first breath, and I held him as he took his last one." She said her pregnancy was proceeding normally until November, when, at 24 weeks, an ultrasound showed that the fetus did not have kidneys and that she had hardly any amniotic fluid. read more
Rodgers, a trans woman, had applied to play in the lower-tier tournament with the Kilsyth Cobras, sparking a backlash and prompting BA to convene a panel to make ruling. The panel " made up of BA chief medical officer Peter Harcourt, Olympian Suzy Batkovic and sport and exercise physician Diana Robinson " decided Rodgers was ineligible to play. A BA statement said the "eligibility of prospective elite level transgender athletes" was decided "on a case-by-case basis, accounting for and balancing a range of factors".
Certainly the "welfare Queen" is an overused stereotype, but it is not a "myth". I can't imagine what sort of place you live in that you have never encountered one.

This is some Aunt Jemimah level shit right here.
"Climatea and weather goes in cycles and is NOT controlled or affected by man."
From the same genius that tells us
"Guns aren't the reason for school shootings."
"See those on here cheering on making the poor work more for benefits."
Poor and middle class Conservatives are the only ones cheering that on.
So do the rich ones, but I don't think we have any rich Conservatives here.
Again, $13.7 billion in PROFIT
It's employees received $6 Billion in government assistance
"I don't think it's something to be disregarded."
I think it's a complete miscarriage of justice. Justice being construed as do the crime, do the time, and your debt to society is paid.
Putting people on a list that follows them around is how otherwise sensible people like you start getting on board with having a Social Credit Score.
"The welfare queen is a disgusting myth"
Dimes to donuts,
Miranda7 says she has some in her extended family.
"Hard to go along with that one, because sex offenders have a VERY high rate of repeating their offenses, so I think the public has a right to know when they live nearby"
It's a lot more than "the public knows when they live nearby."
Because sex crimes offend the conscience more as does the possibility of recidivism, especially when the victims are children. Don't be obtuse.

That's not a sensible precept upon which to formulate criminal justice policy, but you're right.
#6 There are reasons why an Ebola pandemic is highly unlikely.
A coronavirus or influenza pandemic is, on the other hand, not unlikely, as there are a number of coronaviruses and influenza viruses found throughought the world, most of which have no impact on human health.
Flu is probably the biggest concern. Migratory birds accelerate the mutations, in layman's terms.
"Your comment sent me to the search engine..."
You didn't know what The Green Book was, neither did I. But it's been mentioned a few times here before. In fact that's how I think I learned about it. I guess you weren't on that thread.
So, is this decision transphobic?

Probably, but not in an impactful enough way that the government should step in.
Right wingers should be all over this.
The solution to guns? More guns!
The solution to bomb threats? More bomb threats!
But there has never been an Ebola pandemic. There have been outbreaks aka epidemics but Ebola has never gone global like the flu and coronaviruses do.
I just jinxed it though to good luck!
"The antipathy toward union labor ... "
Antipathy towards all labor.
The Union is the canary in the coal mine, when it comes to discerning attitudes towards labor.
Poor Republican people who are anti Union are also stupid, uneducated people.
Though to be fair they do whole-heartedly support the Police Unions that help the police oppress them.
I don't make it a habit of singling anyone out saying they are "going to hell"

You're missing the point.
I'll put it in terms you can understand.
Without the Federal Government protection you ----------- wouldn't have a society.
Another thing we need to do is talk to/study the officers involved (which never happens because they are under threat of prosecution, civil suit or other social threat) and listen. Maybe with the help of hypnosis or techniques we can find answers that lie in the subconcious.

Miranda7 thinks there are reasons that cops go around murdering people that can only be uncovered by hypnosis
You are an absolute quack and there's no police ass you won't joyously sniff.
"Democrats spent 4 years derailing the country while Trump was president."
Who's got the got Eighth Grade English to College English dictionary to tell us what this means?
"nearly every office of the Federal Government is so bloated and inefficient that an independent entity with no political partisan agenda could probably find enough waste to survive a 20% budget cut"
Which Federal office did you work for?
Were you the 20%?
having to train little kids to hide from noisy adults will traumatize many, for a long time.
Republicans are okay with traumatizing kids.
They say, it makes them stronger and tougher.
Republicans love guns more than life itself.
The GOP is a Death Cult and they are grooming kids to accept death from guns as just another part of life.
"email looks to have originated from overseas"
