In today’s world, no matter the subject, you either agree 100% with someone, or you’re a concern troll, false flagging, ignoring the issue, a centrist, etc. which is practically as bad as being 100% against.
The concepts of nuance, complex situations, a middle ground, multiple points of view? All weasel words now.
Social media was a mistake.

Social media was a mistake.
And now you know the Watsonian reason it usually doesn’t exist in stereotypical science fiction (the Doylist reason is that most sci fi is based on Star Wars or Blade Runner, which both predate the internet, in fact, Star Wars predates the abolition of the guillotine)
@Kiryu-Chan
Their age is really an issue. Has there ever been a presidential candidate younger than Crusader Rabbit or Star Wars?

Two-spirit is a different thing entirely from gender fluid which as far as I can tell is what Nex Benedict actually identified as, two-spirit never came up in any of the articles I read of this situation
As for this asshole, how about he put his real name out there if he’s so confident about his feelings

Nex identified first and foremost as non-binary. In their mother’s own testimony she said Nex was teaching her that they felt like neither man nor woman, but “right down the middle.” Maybe it was presumptuous of me to call them two-spirit if they never identified as such personally, but media has been heavily glossing over the fact they were of the Cherokee nation.

On recent episodes of his podcast, Kirk has called MLK Jr. “a myth,” questioned whether he deserves a federal holiday named for him and wondered if Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is more deserving of such an honor. Kirk also has ridiculed DEI initiatives in the airline industry, saying it has caused him to wonder, “If I see a Black pilot, I’m going to be like, ‘Boy, I hope he’s qualified.’”
Scott said he could “neither confirm nor deny” that the conversation with Trump took place. But he acknowledged that he has heard from people close to Trump who share his view that Kirk’s commentary may harm the former president’s prospects with Black voters.
“I’ve got to say, racism is like the word ‘ugly.’ I can’t always describe it, but I know it when I see it,” Scott said in an interview with NBC News. “That boy’s a racist right there.”
It’s unclear how Trump has taken to the warnings. Trump allies offered conflicting accounts of whether he was bothered by any of the issues raised to him, with one ally who has warned him about Kirk saying Trump believes Kirk is a “juggernaut.”
“Trump is f—ing pissed that Charlie is out causing problems for him in the Black community,” said another person close to Trump who claimed direct knowledge of his thinking.
MAGA wants nothing more than to say the N-Word. But Kirk is jumping the gun and ruining for all of them just when their N-Word Pass was finally in reach.
It’s well known by now that the conservative wave of book bans, spearheaded by Ron DeSantis, has backfired utterly as activists has coopted it to ban all books with problematic material. Including and famously the Bible. So what’s DeSantis’ response to this? A hurried response that book bans are a “hoax” and urging to own legislature to create exceptions in his own law.

STOP KOSA!
TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate Judiciary Committee last week voted unanimously to endorse the state’s copycat version of the age verification legislation being sponsored around the country by anti-porn religious conservative activists, despite Democratic Senators expressing concerns about implications for free speech.
SB 394 was introduced by the Republican chair of the committee, Sen. Kellie Warren, who eventually convinced her colleagues to send the measure to a full Senate vote.
Adult websites “would be subject to the age-confirmation requirement if more than one-fourth of content viewed in any calendar month could be interpreted as harmful to minors,” the Kansas Reflector reported.

Which is funny because the “both sidesing” amounts to saying both candidates are too old and getting senile, which is 100% true
I’d say it’s more like 50% true. I have no trouble believing it in the case of Trump, since there are countless examples of him mentally deteriorating onstage that never get covered because the news media has apparently decided that reporting on the many wrong, nonsensical, and/or borderline treasonous things he says just doesn’t bring the pageviews. When they actually take the time to talk to people who interact with Biden, on the other hand, you routinely hear that he’s sharp and focused and has a good grasp of whatever subject it is that’s being discussed. And given that Biden has a long history of verbal gaffes and a well documented speech impediment to contend with as well, the fact that he occasionally flubs a word or two doesn’t bother me in comparison to Captain Mini-stroke still bragging about passing the Are you a vegetable? test.

There are plenty of subjects where not agreeing 100% with either side or being middle of the road is a valid and defensible position, but with all due respect to Stewart, the next presidential election is not one of those issues. I’m sure it’s easy for the guy who achieved a lot of his fame during a time when a presidential election wouldn’t potentially lead to a fascist dystopia to think that whoever wins good people will continue to fight, but it kind of ignores the fact that one side is already in the planning stages of firing or arresting (or maybe just straight up disappearing, who knows?) the good people he expects to save the day. The world has changed a lot since he last left the business, and it’s a bit unfortunate he hasn’t.

Frankly I trust the opinion of person with a PhD in clinical psychology who’s known what kind of monster Donald is her entire life due to being related to him far more than I do Stewart at this point.

But see, the thing is, it’s undeniable that Biden is a better option than Trump, but it’s also undeniable that Biden is a bad candidate. Pretending like Biden is great and amazing is absurd. The guy’s not saying “eh, both are bad, do whatever”, he’s pointing out the undeniable reality that we have two candidates, the oldest to ever run, that have been showing clear signs of senility.
I’d rather dems gracefully sidestep the issue of Biden’s age by focusing on his actual track record in office and pulling whataboutisms with Trump’s own constant gaffes than bold face lying to people about Biden being the sharpest man that ever done lived, because the latter just looks silly.

@The Smiling Pony
Why not have the Democrats remove Biden from the ballot and have Gov. Gavin Newsom as the candidate for president? Kamala Harris isn’t fit for the job and Biden and Trump are too old and show signs of cognitive decline. Seriously, I’d vote for Newsom before I vote for either Biden or Trump. Although I’d vote for Biden before I see Trump coming back to the WH.

I want to know how do most Americans think of “Christian nationalism” and “project 2025” (some republican attempt to make trump ruler).
Are they really that popular or not? They are louder on Twitter.

Christian Nationalists are a minority, but they are extremely loud, aggressive and are using Americans’ disengagement and apathy toward politics to take control. Project 2025 is an existential threat not only to American democracy and the rights of women and minorities, but the very existence of queerfolk. It’d be like Russia or Turkey in here if successfully implemented.
As for what the BGP up above said, I’d be pissed if Gruesome Newsom was the Dem nominee. The guy’s got all of Biden’s problems and none of what little charm Biden can muster. Dems screwed themselves by not working on building up a credible bench over the past decade.

Indonesia just elected a guy whose track record includes a genocide of various tribes and people, whose military force bully poor villagers and the disadvantaged, who have imprisoned and assassinated dissenting voices, and then some.
Also a literal fascist who flat out said “Indonesians aint built for democracy”
He has been dubbed The Next Soeharto
(Soeharto was Indonesia’s notorious dictator who ran office for 35 years with a suspiciously high 90% approval rate)
The biggest (by landmass and population number) country in SouthEastAsia has just elected a fucking tyrant.
Philippines neighbor, has just elected a tyrant, who also is financially supporting Israel by buying weapons from them (through a mediator).
Possibility of no more free press, more human rights violations, more oppression, and possible brain drain.
Fuck. The region’s fucked.
