My memory is that Thomas was the only one who at least made a statement in support of that effort.

I do, regularly, and find it pretty well based. They do occasionally criticize Trump (and even more occasionally I agree with their criticisms) but they are by no means compromised. The Taki's article by Steve Sailer today references the article you've linked. Here's an excerpt from the Taki's article:

https://www.takimag.com/article/the-truth-about-pervs/

"The most excusable reason neither the left nor the right has made much sense of transgenderism is that it’s confusing. Until the social construction of rapid-onset gender dysphoria over the last decade, it came in two very different types, the second of which has been covered up.

The first type is early-onset gender dysphoria: extreme effeminacy in little boys or extreme tomboyism in little girls. This variety sometimes goes away with time (especially among tomboys) and often resolves itself into conventional adult homosexuality, and sometimes the sufferer can’t seem to live as his or her own sex and demands clothes, hormones, and even surgery.

The second and in some ways more socially important type is the male-only disorder of late-onset gender dysphoria. This is frequently (and perhaps always) related to a rather comic sex fetish called autogynephilia in which at puberty, a normally masculine boy begins dressing up in his mother’s lingerie and masturbating in front of the mirror, imagining himself as the beautiful girl he desires.

For reasons that I’ve never seen completely explained, those with the late-onset syndrome tend to be highly intelligent; ambitious in their stereotypically masculine careers (e.g., Tur insisted on being called “Chopper Bob”); fans of hard science fiction (with Robert Heinlein a favorite); and, often, not very nice. They tend to be highly insistent that others validate their sex fantasy about themselves and relentless trouble to those who won’t.

It’s important to note that there is no female equivalent to late-onset gender dysphoria. Instead, rapid-onset gender dysphoria in which conventionally feminine little girls hit the emotional turmoil of puberty and decide that the cause of their unhappiness must be that they have always been transgender is a new thing spread by social and legacy media in recent years. It’s a fad, a catastrophic fad.

The existence of the late-onset type among some males is well-known among scientific specialists in the field, but has been almost completely covered up in the mainstream media due to furious campaigns by hyper-aggressive men in dresses to hush up the embarrassing news about their fetish."

Sadly, it seems that the Democrats have been much more efficiently weeding out DINOs than we have RINOs. This also fits the "decline of civilization" theory.

Steve Sailer has an amazing article about this in Taki's Magazine (https://www.takimag.com/article/the-truth-about-pervs/)

Here's a bit:

Mostly agreed; Apartments get a lot of community pushback, especially in low-income areas, but condos & McMansions are seen as good investments with little resistance from neighbors. With that said, the city & county regs are rife with opportunities for graft. Corporations who've been borrowing (or stealing) cheap dev money have no interest in maintaining a neighborhood style, just building the most lucrative properties possible.

Local new home construction where I live seems confined only to condominiums, townhomes (duplexes) or McMansions only. No single-family one-story homes under construction since I can remember.

I'm reminded of the scene in "The Big Short" where the valuations of mortgage-backed securities is kept at artificially high levels while the actual mortgage industry is experiencing a huge meltdown. (I don't think anybody ever went to jail for that bit of obvious, heinous fraud, either.)

See, if he accepts it now I'm inclined to doubt it. (Ann Coulter and David Cole do make some pretty persuasive arguments in favor of the wet market origin story, too.)

It seems to me there's a lot of "science" in favor it it, but they're leery of referencing it because it comes from demonstrably immoral and/or psychotic monsters like Alfred Kinsey and John Money and their ilk.

Well, the question that SA's review (and, I gather the book he's reviewing) tries to answer is why it is that we've come down with these two distinct flavors and whether or not eugenics plays a role in it (and if so, how much.)

So in your analogy I would have to ask why you didn't also pick up some ginger ale, 7-Up and Mr. Pibb. (And thanks a lot, now I'm thirsty.) Are those the only two flavors for sale? If so, why?

One thing I think it's important to remember about this is that the tradition pretty much everywhere else in the world is that there is a ruling class and a peasantry; the peasants get shirty every now and then and there are revolutions. We don't seem to have had that here; our divisions went more along (seemingly) moral, ethical and (in my view) spiritual lines.

Having known a large number of creative people in my life, I believe that an outsized talent, such as King's ability as a prose stylist, bears a cost in other areas of the personality, and that cost is usually in the area of good sense.

Cruise's anti-psychology stance (taken from scientology) probably helped a lot, too, as he views the practice as promoting perversion, degradation and cruelty. (Which of course is not to say that his preferred substitute, scientology, is objectively better.)

Also, naming your daughter after a famous stripper is a pretty big red flag.

Also, of course, to deny you your 1st amendment rights as well, as any public statement you make (particularly on the Internet) will be subject to scrutiny for that purpose. Post to TDW, Gab, or TS? They'll find a judge who says that's sufficient.

I keep saying we in the truly conservative movement need to read Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and employ those tactics, because they work. This was a fine example of that. You don't have to break laws, you don't have to break up the country, you just need to provide a coherent, mature platform for sanity to give those less well-informed or morally weak an alternative viewpoint to consider.

I dunno...the words "no standing" sort of float through my mind seeing this...
