    Depends on how broadly you define genetic condition. Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Bipolar, are all mental health issues. But arguably there is a genetic component that makes people susceptible to those mental health conditions. But I also wouldn't call homosexuality a genetic condition, nor a mental health issue. Gender Dysmorphia is definitely a mental health issue. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/conditions/gender-dysphoria Yet Hormonal imbalances could be genetic. Not necessarily passed on genetically, just a genetic condition cause through random mutation, aka something you're born with. That said, the one that is definitely genetic/chromosomal are those born with extra chromosomes... like XXY, XXX, XYY... which represent a small enough population that's around the same size as people who identify as transgender. Also, largely diagnosed as most people don't get their chromosomes tested at birth.

    I should mention, that my state (Minnesota), get's a lot of Refugees from countries like Somalia. Many through the Lutheran Social Services organization. Many of those Refugees refuse vaccines on religious grounds. Most are required to be vaccinated regardless, and Lutheran Social Services are supposed to make sure these people get the required vaccines/health checks/etc. But, Anti-Vaxxers are/have been targeting Immigrants & Refugees with quackery. Which lead to a Measles outbreak. I'm just going to throw this link here. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2017/10/26/16552864/minnesotas-measles-outbreak-immigrants-anti-vaxxers It was just one of the first to pop up about the outbreak, immigrants, and anti-vaxxers in Minnesota. I don't hang out reading every article on vox daily. (if you want to even call them articles)

    Conspiracy Theories.

    *Shrugs* The entire thing started as a troll so.... See that's the problem with flat earthers, they believe all that leg work is fabricated. You can't change belief with fact. If we could, Christianity would have died out centuries ago. True.. I think I said pretty much the same thing at one point. The problem is, trying to figure out which skeptics are actually skeptics, and which are just switching one faith for another. Joe Rogan said something about conspiracy theorists at one point. People crave to be special, that they know something other's don't. It's infuriating in some cases. Look at the stupid ballgazer game, that now apparently means "white power". It was clearly a stupid joke/fake outrage, that got picked up as fact, and now somehow actually adopted by white power, or just trolls. Anti-vaxxers claim vaccines 100% cause Autism. (It doesn't. Besides, Autism isn't a freaking death sentence. More people have it than are diagnosed!) They also use fake health talk like vaccine injured. Look up things like Typhoid Mary, and what the police/public health did for condemning places for not having the proper facilities. We do a lot of stuff for public health & safety. Know why shitting in the streets is a crime? It spreads disease. Know why you can't just go take a shit in your back yard (that you own)? It spreads disease. Vaccines create Herd Immunity for children & adults that are immunocompromised. It creates Herd Immunity for Children & Adults that are allergic to compounds in Vaccines. (This does exist. People with Egg Allergies can't have certain vaccines) Every anti-vaxxer that refuses vaccines for any reason other than those medically necessary, puts thousands at risk for their own arrogance. Which is why you are seeing a push back against Anti-Vaxxers from going to schools, clinics, etc. They can take their Essential Oils and go to Africa for all I care. If you come to America, you are required to have certain vaccines. Some claim religious exemption. In those cases we should say "Nope. Sorry.". And the thing is, they are 100% wrong. They are gullible people, being sold snake oil by scammers. They are creating a public health crisis. Their own selfishness is killing people every day . 2 things. 1) Antibiotics are for Bacteria. Vaccines are for Virus's. Two different things. 2) They give antibiotics to animals to prevent & stop disease. Some farming practices necessitate the amounts of antibiotics because of the living conditions of said animals. If they lowered/stopped antibiotics, disease would run rampant in those animal populations. and here's the thing. If you want cheap meat, you have to deal with huge populations of animals in a small amount of area that are going to need vaccines & antibiotics. If you want expensive organic meat (which you can buy), the farming practices require more space, and less animals (less output). It also requires sick animals to get killed needlessly, because they refuse to vaccinate or give them antibiotics. (All of this might become redundant with lab grown meat) The other thing is, while over-use of antibiotics in animals is an obvious issue. (Namely that antibiotic resistant bacteria can spread from Animal to Human, rather than antibiotics passing from animal to Human) There's more issue with people going to their doctors and demanding an antibiotic for a viral flu! (Yelling and screaming.. Thanks boomers for causing so much antibiotic resistance!) Btw. Have you not noticed an interesting correlation between the rise of Organic/Non-GMO/no Antibiotic/No Hormone food, and the increased rate of food born Illness outbreaks? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28221898 Versus Foodborne illness outbreaks https://www.cdc.gov/fdoss/annual-reports/index.html (Notice how the rate was going down before 2009?)

    Sell it back for equipment they'll actually use. Cams, Guns they typically use, etc. *Shrugs* One could hope. If it reduces the time they spend in court, that would be great. I didn't say anything about seeing the video. I was talking about Writing software that'll allow the officer to dictate their reports (speech to text), templates with fill in the blanks that they can use their notes on. That kinda stuff.

    Conspiracy Theories.

    It's like the 30+ different gender names. I don't bother to learn all the new names people are calling themselves. I don't bother trying to learn all the new slang. I can't keep up. By the time I learn one, it's already outdated. I may as well be a grandpa in terms of new slang. People still say "Lets get Lit" right? No problem. I tend to avoid reading the comment section of news stories for more than a few minutes... The Comments section is absolute AIDS. After 9/11, and Columbine, many Police got a ton of military grade weapons that are literally just sitting there doing nothing. Some have equipment, they only use to drive out on tests to make sure they still work. I'm sure a lot of this equipment can be downgraded, and added body-cams with minimal cost. From an Evidentiary stand point, maybe court cases will become expedited through the use of body-cams, without necessitating every cop involved come in and testify. Hell, adding new/better software, could help Cops write their reports in a fraction of the time... Which could help those who are barely literate.

    That doesn't work either. People have done just that. But they just call you a shill, bought by biground-earth. Basically people got all ass hurt that he wasn't wearing the suit color he's expected to wear.. Basically it's recreational outrage. I have a lot of conservative people on my Facebook feed, and.. wow. Some of the stuff they complained about Obama that had nothing to do with policy.. (And then the conspiracy theories like birthers, muslim, anti-christ...) This. I think Krak is probably the person most similar to me in this thread right now with regards to how we approach so called "conspiracy theories". I want to hear them out even if I don't believe them myself. If nothing else a conspiracy theory is a more interesting version of the truth. Every time. Okay so we have two things going on here. 1) We all want people to look at things logically, question, and evaluate things subjectively. We don't want them to all just passively accept everything. 2) Many conspiracy theorists (not all) automatically doubt any official story, and only believe conspiracy theories without question. Talking about conspiracy theories, hearing them out and testing them against logic & facts is what needs to be done. But those who believe in conspiracy theories like a religion, are just going to taint the well, and cause the entire idea to be mocked. Flat-Earthers aren't dangerous. Most are just Trolls. (It recently resurfaced as a 4chan group trolling people!... only it got out of hand and now people believe it!) But again, they aren't dangerous. They aren't going to cause many problems... (Aside from trying to screw up the NASA Budget). Now Anti-Vaxxers? They are causing very real public health problems.

    Well, to be fair we don't really know the content of that book she read. (I'm sure we can dig it up if we actually cared enough) It probably had a lot less nuance like you'd see in actual sex ed. and more just a generalized, some boys are boys, girls are girls, some girls feel like boys, some boys feel like girls, and some boys just like to dress like girls, and vice versa.

    If you find that scary, I dunno what to tell ya, I would have laughed at her/him if I saw that, at that age.

    ... I was basically stating it wasn't one of those slutty ass costumes. The above picture, is about as scary as a fluffy doggo. The only reason it's scary is because it was talking about gender fluidity to children.

    Conspiracy Theories.

    Referring to flat earthers? They are dumb and gullible. We should openly mock them. They've given us no recourse on the matter. It has been proven wrong is soo many ways it is countless, but you can't prove it wrong to someone, who refuses acknowledge any evidence because any evidence that runs counter is just made up and all the scientists are paid off. Depends on the criminal, the surrounding area, and how populated the area is. Gun shots draw attention. If he was in a secluded park? Yea, that would be weird. Near his home? Not so much. Speculation my dear Watson.. is the realm of MSNBC and 24 hour news networks. I hear you. But also to be fair, I recall the same nitpicky bs under Obama that every conservative uncle & grandma on FB posts daily about... still. Remember the Tan Suit controversy? I'm not trying to do the whole "Whataboutism" thing to justify liberals doing it against conservatives. Merely pointing out the hypocrisy on both sides.

    Maybe for Rural police, but City/Large town? I'd say necessary. Plus, it can be used pretty well to convict people. It can put cop killers away even harder. It can also potentially identify them, when dash cams fail. Imagine if Google Glasses had actually taken off, and we could just have them wear those, or contacts (so we can see what they see). It could dramatically change courts and evidence in a very big way.

    Conspiracy Theories.

    Only thing I could find about Khashoggi & CIA was this same story from about 20 different sources. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/04/us/politics/cia-senate-khashoggi-.html And it goes on like that. It's possible the story your talking about is buried somewhere on page 30+... It is getting harder to find specific information when new information floods the news. AFAIK, the only mention of CIA is that their investigation and report to the senate is that the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, is complacent in the murder of Khashoggi.

    Far out of line for Halloween, in the age of slutty versions of everything? Also, keywords are... "whatever the hell she's dressed up as".

    Conspiracy Theories.

    I do have to mention that demon story though. The person reading, wasn't a Teacher in the professional sense, rather a speaker.... So while yes they are teaching children, they aren't a professionally certified teacher. The real objection most conservatives have is the content that was being taught. Namely gender fluidity. Which they find abhorrent and demonic by itself. The Demon outfit. Let's look at the story again. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2017/10/16/draq-queen-library-lgtbq-kids/ Posted 10/16/17. Whether the event was or wasn't explicitly for Halloween, people jumped straight to demonic. Take Snopes version of what happened. And Finally, Four Kids clearly in Halloween costume. Also, That's totally not the most demonic outfit I can think of. I mean, if this drag queen dressed up like this I mean, if the Drag Queen dressed like that? I could see the Demon thing being taken a bit more seriously.

    But that is how it is being taught in schools right now. In Biology, not Theology/Social Studies. :Wink:
