A REALLY strong sign that your “scientific” article is total hokum:

When folks raise legit questions about your obviously flawed methodology and specious conclusions, you respond by calling them whores and perverts and can’t defend your *actual* work.

#ROGD I’ve presented at a number major professional conferences in multiple disciplines, and I’m a peer-reviewer for several journals. I can honestly say that I’ve never had someone try to defend work I criticized by calling me a slut. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Here’s the thing about Spicy’s comments about trans bathrooms and the whole controversy in general:

Trans folks didn’t start the hubbub. Neither did progressives. The ENTIRE issue as a political issue was manufactured by conservatives as a scare-mongering tactic. Trans folks have been in your damn bathrooms for decades, and everything was fine. We didn’t start fighting for laws that specifically enumerated our right to use the proper bathrooms. We just used them without making a fuss. It was scary sometimes, but it was largely a non-issue
