The CIA is the lesser evil in this conflict; the Iranian theocrats are our enemies and they deserve death. You can't even pretend they are holding the line against degeneracy; they are second only to Thailand in their perpetration of trans surgeries.

She is clearly a fool, but I hope she survives this as a wiser woman. Her parents and her teachers did her a disservice by allowing her to reach adulthood without understanding that evil people still exist in the world, and that places like Iran and Pakistan are dominated by them.

Straight men don't watch "rom-coms"

Not the sort that gets called a "rom-com," anyway. Give the love story a backdrop of adventure instead of urban makework and we're far more amenable.

I'm willing to believe it might be a good movie, but it's a niche product that most people will be indifferent to at best.

and 'felony murder' (which is murder in the commission of a crime if I understand it correctly)

"Felony murder" is an unintentional death that happened as a consequence of your felony. If Brandt had robbed a bank and Ellingson had been run over in the aftermath, that would be felony murder, but since Brandt specifically wanted to kill Ellingson it's just plain murder.

Worse than not making moral judgements is the moral judgements people on the left do make. Read David Merritt's twitter some time, and you'd think it was the Tories who got his son killed and not his own Islamophilia.

Anyone who votes for Labour because they're disappointed that the Tories are Labour Lite is brain damaged. It's far better to "waste your vote" on a third party that represents your interests than to vote for the enemy.

I don't think that's a scam. I think it's natural for an author whose debut novel was as successful as Rothfuss's to want to end the trilogy on the same high note that it started, and to make the perfect the enemy of the good in pursuit of that goal.

Because most people know who Matt Smith is. Even as someone who has probably never watched anything he's ever been in, I know he played Doctor Who and some stupid terminator on the most recent stupid Terminator movie.

Your title understates the problem with the article. The very idea of a transsexual priest in Christianity seems ridiculous to me, since I don't know how you can have the necessary faith in God to be a priest, yet be so ungrateful that you reject the healthy body you were given.

They hate Andrew Tate for the wrong reasons. If they didn't like the CEO hanging around with snake-oil salesmen it would be one thing, but compare him to George Floyd:

One is an African American who was falsely suspected of having a woman imprisoned in his home, who has been charged with no crime because the raid on his house proved it was a lie. The other is an African American who was convicted for robbing a woman at gunpoint. According to Riot you must shun the first and revere the second, despite the second being far worse.

It's not surprising, it's as predictable as the fucking tide. Islamic history is a thousand year parade of Muslims attacking Jews, Christians, blacks, Sikhs, Buddhists, women, homosexuals and Muslims, so why would they stop now?

"Whitewash" has nothing to do with white skin, it's a pigment used to colour and protect timber and brick buildings.

In Nancy Verhelst's case, I believe it was just emotional and not sexual abuse by her misogynistic parents. Her mother thought she should have been born a boy, and the doctors agreed.

My back of a napkin math says he's using 100-200 megajoules of natural gas per day out of spite.

Google says fossil fuels emit about 0.07 kg of CO2 per megajoule.

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry's private jet emitted 325,000 kilograms of CO2 in around 500 days, or 650 kilograms per day. Meaning that this guy deliberately wasting fuel out of spite is approximately 50-90 times better for the environment than John Kerry being a climate activist.

A draft in a defensive war is an entirely different beast than a draft in an offensive war. If someone believed the post-revolution government of Ukraine was legitimate then they will naturally believe that said government conscripting citizens to repel a foreign invasion is also legitimate.

a notion that’s been challenged by scientists for years.

...proving they were not scientists, but in fact priests for the cult of intersectionality.

I'm not so down on a game using AI-generated assets, but the way they've used it sounds bad. I'd either use it as an invisible step in the pipeline - like the algorithms used to generate 3D meshes from 2D images - or lean into the idea by using AI-generated remixes to populate a dreamscape.
