    This probably should have been posted in the .NET Architecture & Design forum.

    One thing that has bothered me is the certainty with which many push the lab leak theory. I've always thought that it was a definite possibility but by no means a certainty. There is evidence that...

    It may seem a small thing but, to me, the use of "Communist China" is quite telling too. It smacks of propaganda. We all know where and what China is. You can say China and we will all know what...

    Yes, I'm sure that that was part of it. That also marks trans people as different. No one is pointing to people they don't like on the street and whipping up a mob to force gender-affirming surgery...

    For someone who claims not to like words being redefined, you sure do play fast and loose with the words "far" and "radical". I guess we could include "crushing" in that list too.
