Trump Could Still Start a Last-Ditch War With Iran The Atlantic
We already know that Trump is thinking about attacking Iran. In mid-November, after he lost the presidential election, Trump asked for military options against Iranian nuclear facilities, a reckless idea that was derailed by top aides. Since then, the United States has sent B-52 bombers on missions in the Persian Gulf three times, including a 30-hour round trip from North Dakota to the Gulf on December 29.
People of trans experience are incredibly vulnerable. They are widely discriminated against at school, at work, and are denied access to basic healthcare. But 2020 has been a particularly bad year due to the efforts of conservatives and so-called radical feminists to mainstream discrimination against women of trans experience, and to delegitimize men of trans experience. The common thread of the conservative and so-called radical feminist argument is that anyone who was assigned male at birth is potentially dangerous, and should not be given access to safe spaces such as rape crisis centers and women’s bathrooms.
In this article, I will attempt to answer these questions and address arguments against fundamental rights from both radical feminists and conservatives. I will draw upon my own experience of transitioning from male to female as a teenager in the early 2000s, as well as the experience of friends who have transitioned more recently. In doing so, I hope to convince the reader that despite Rowling’s alarmist framing, gender clinics have more often than not been a paternalistic obstruction to individuals of trans experience.
Confusion (often intentional) surrounds unemployment data. This graph adds (as it should) jobless workers claiming federal pandemic unemployment compensation (PUA, PEUC) to those making state claims. Total US jobless = over 20 mil. More than 1 of every 8 workers. System failure! pic.twitter.com/Q7caRPqezd
