CMD @ 22 - And when have the repugs ever listened to the radfems? Never mind the radfems, to the fems? Or even to women in general?
And it's not as if Trump didn't do some over-reaching himself when setting forth rules...
NGRHE doesn't need to fear me, though: it does a great job of demonstrating the weakness of its arguments all on its own.

Hunter @ 1 - They're all the rage in Gullibleland.
Griz @ 4 - Did the masseuse turn out to be a cross-dresser as well?

@ 18, 21 and 25 - Actually, if you open your eyes to what's happening in the world climate-wise, you will find that you don't really need expert advice to realize that the planet's climate is changing, and fast. It's fucking obvious. Which does not mean that it's not useful having experts demonstrate it, since many politicians and industrials find it a most inconvenient truth and will do everything they can to avoid having to deal with it. But that's a different issue.
Having an expert tell us that "if you take a moment to check out evidence about his personal hygiene you'll agree with the current, most likely, train of thought, that he was asexual" does not mean that he wasn't repressing his desires (does the phrase "internalized homophobia" ring a bell, anyone?), and there's a multitude of other reasons why he wouldn't mention them on paper.
Unfortunately, so far no expert has the ability to go back in time to confirm their conclusions concerning an artist's innermost impulses. They may be educated deductions, but they're still deductions, not fact. Climate change is happening now, and easily measurable. You simply can't compare the two. Find a better analogy.
