    I meant it wasn’t reported in the US prior to the election i didn’t see it any news. It wasn’t talked about in my perspective it was intentional.  I don’t mind as it made the Orange julep not get re-elected!😂

    Yeah that's fair. And no doubt the election dominated the news. But if Trump supporters want to claim that it magically appeared after the election then that's incorrect as the rest of the world was well aware of it.

    With a Vaccine on it’s way Trump was right it was a couple of weeks away and that fact it came out days after the election to me is pretty fishy. All i’m saying i’m obviously not a Trump supporter but i don’t like this shady stuff i swear i don’t believe anything anymore. Or am i reading too much into this? LOL. 

    The vaccine was ready before the election. Australia announced a deal a couple of days before (Australian time) before the US election. To say it was announced after is inaccurate.

  3. Trump. And even if he doesn’t win legitimately he will take it to the Supreme Court and they will vote in his favour. And if for some way he doesn’t win and Biden is President Elect he will push a conspiracy theory that he was robbed and will encourage his support to revolt. Just look what happened in Michigan with Whitmer. Just imagine that but across the whole country. More violence and polarisation across the country. The US is cooked no matter who wins the election. Both New Zealand and Australia have issued travel warnings for the US.

    I'm not the biggest Romney fan but he has a point. This type of politic is horrible to watch. 

    It’s a shame he has contributed to it. Where is his integrity. Where is his concern when it benefits him. His backflip on nominating a judge for SCOTUS is a perfect example of his hypocrisy. 
     

    He is right though. The world is watching in horror at what a joke the US has become. 

  5. Tucker Carlson is the fucking Joseph Goebbels of the Trump dictatorship. Literally that's what the US has become.

    Facebook and Instagram Flag Tucker Carlson Virus Posts

    The show posted a video on the social media platforms on Tuesday night with the caption “Chinese whistle-blower to Tucker: This virus was made in a lab & I can prove it.”

    Earlier this week, a report about the virus, co-written by Dr. Yan, was published by two nonprofit organizations, the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation. According to The Daily Beast, both are linked to Steve Bannon, the former adviser to President Trump who was recently charged with fraud.

    Ministry of Propaganda. Trump will win 2020 and if he doesn't he will create a civil war. Either way the US is fucked.

    ^ trans women are real women and there's even a name for being born in the wrong body. Gender dysphoria. 

    Not believing it is the equivalent to not believing that you are born gay or lesbian or bi. 

    Just the same that a gay person can't help being attracted to people of their same sex, trans people  can't help feeling a sex different to what their genitals say. 

    And very nice of JK to "march" with trans for being discriminated for being trans. Funny because she's never done it.

    What really irks me and the reason why I answer in this thread over and over is that no trans woman would fight for the right of being considered a menstrual mammal. And yet that's what this absurda and other people bring about biology. 

    THEY FIGHT TO NOT BEING DISCRIMINATED NOT FOR THEIR RIGHT TO BUY A TAMPAX. 

    They simply hate trans woman. Period.

    Your arguments are not comparable. I’m not saying transsexualism isn’t real and to my perspective neither is JK Rowling. I completely acknowledge that transgendered people align their gender to the opposite biological/physical sex due to reasons not completely understood by modern science. I completely agree that they should not be discriminated for that either. Stating that transgendered people are transgendered is not discriminatory though. It’s simply stating a fact? Can you elaborate on what a “real” woman is and who “they” is that hates trans women?

  7. In this instance I do agree with JK Rowling.

    I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.

    The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women - ie, to male violence - ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences - is a nonsense.

    If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.

    Rather than trying to force the concept of male or female on trans people, I feel like we should be acknowledging and accepting them for who they are. Statements such as "trans women are real women" are asinine because it links gender identity to femininity or masculinity. What defines a "real" woman then? What does it mean to be trans? As a trans-female are you only a "woman" if you display feminine traits? Or does it mean that you've had gender reassignment surgery? Neither is a condition by which a person needs to justify the gender pronoun they choose. I struggle to see what the problem is with JK Rowling's position?  I genuinely don't know so I would really like to hear from any trans members on the forum to share their views on the topic.

    I dont have to prove anything buddy.

    I dont have to get you the worm and feed it to you.

    Some of us, can sit through a 4 hour of Hillary documentary and some of us cant even sit and her insufferable ass  for 5 min. 

    You deserve the shit show that is America. Hilary wasn't perfect. Neither is Bernie or Biden or any other democrat. But this mentality is why you ended up with Trump. You might even be a Trump voter. You might be happy with the way he has lead your country. The rest of the world sees what a joke it is.

    Well, the UK can't mock America for Trump now. Voting Boris in a landslide win is appalling. The world is a fucked up scary place.  How can that stupid, racist, idiotic and heartless Buffoon be the overwhelming choice ? The United States, Brazil, Australia and now the UK. Beyond disgusted at how the hard right have taken over. 

    Honestly I'm speechless that this is where we are.

    It is a very clear mandate for Brexit though so I no longer have any sympathy for the UK. They clearly made their choice. Let them crash out with a no deal and they can deal with the consequences. I wonder how long until Ireland and Scotland seek independence.

    He basically can do what he wants. I even know some Australians who love him and either excuse everything he does or don't care how badly he behaves,  how he is caught out as a compulsive liar over and over or how stupid he is. I will never understand it as I am positive they would despise him in real life.

    Same @Jazzy Jan. He's "real" and "telling it like it is". Basically he gives them an excuse for their ignorance. "PC gone mad" "Need to go back to traditional values" that's what he represents to people. I never realised how many Australians think Fox News is a legitimate news source. Any time I discuss something negative about Trump I always get people quoting Fox News and how the democrats are lying and a bunch of conspiracy theories about them and Obama. They will choose whatever suits their beliefs and anything that goes against them is considered fake news. Blows my mind. They crazy thing is that in Australia they happily accept things like Medicare and minimum wages and workers rights and public holidays but at the same time support Trump who would strip all of those rights from them.

  11. The constant meltdowns about everything became tiring. It also felt like some people were constantly just looking to start arguments or pick a fight.  

    As others have mentioned, there hasn’t been much promo other than the videos either. Everything went so quick and now she’s in the middle of rehearsals for the tour. For some reason the theatre shows don’t excite me as much as her previous tours have.

    neh, they ripped Miley's new record and Taylor's new song to shreds *on taylor's case for cringy SJW baiting admittedly, that song is atrocious* ... gaga is also read to filth on metacritic on the regular so there's no surprise there...  Ariana and queen B are the true critical darlings, but not everything they release gets 5 star reviews... just *almost* everything

    I said if they had released Madame X specifically. Not their usual crap which is rightly rated poorly. My point being that Madame X is a masterpiece and the bad reviews are because it’s Madonna and not because of the music itself.
