Almond milk is a vile abomination not fit for humans nor animals.
the complete moral capitulation by some segments of the left has been something to watch. In the year 2022, intellectual descendants of rosa luxembourg criticizing iranian women and propping up an imperialist warmonger

This was inevitable when hijabs and burqas started to become “feminist” in their minds. The rise of the New Puritans was always going to lead to this sort of retrograde insanity.

I know these protests are about more than just hijabs, but I do hope all the feminists who insisted on telling us how very feminist hijabs and burqas (et al.) were have had time to do some self-reflection. I know they won’t. But they should, dammit.
Hadis is what a real feminist looks like.
Anyone interested in the reason behind regional inequality can just look at deregulation. You can't get to most places easily anymore! https://t.co/nmaJ3B4tDw

Anti-fun anti-travel libs love this, but of course it’s very bad for the regions and people involved.
Question my gender? I don’t care about or think about my gender at all. It’s completely irrelevant. It just doesn’t matter to me in any appreciable way and never has.
I’m surprised the Covidians don’t get more enraged at Zeynep Tufekci, but I believe that’s mostly because what she writes is simply too complex for them to understand. She debunks and contextualizes all the poor and poorly-framed Long Covid studies but does it in a nuanced manner.
They aren’t looking for nuance. They want religious fervor and something from a mind like hers is just too difficult to integrate one way or the other.
Thread. Vaccination won't save you. The problem with COVID19 is that it mutates fast—and vaccination with non-sterilizing vaccines (what we have now) selects for vaccine-evading strains (which come roaring back). https://t.co/i96TRJM6OI

That’s not really how it works.
Scientists: The vaccines have saved 20 million lives.
Liberals: The vaccines won’t save you. They don’t even work. They’re pointless. Everyone will get Covid 900 times and 392 trillion people will have Long Covid.
Come on now. That’s not how any virus in the history of ever has worked. Why would Covid-19 — a fairly ordinary but novel coronavirus — be any different? Great claims require extraordinary evidence.
I have made pretty big, impactful moves in my short career simply because I was willing to make a decision on something and go with it. If you make an informed decision on something, 9/10 no one will challenge you. https://t.co/sCm6BcAOMC

This is very true in my field. Most people are afraid of deciding. But I make myself the decider. That’s how I am in high leadership roles with no four-year-degree and have been for quite a few years now.
