A rare fail from Katie and Jesse. Mulvaney is an obvious fraud who doesn't deserve the slack they (mostly Katie) cut him here. And sure, Matt Walsh might be a bully, but at least in the clip played he at least gives voice to the genuine -and warranted- anger felt against Mulvaney by so many (especially women).

Doesn't seem like a great idea to conflate puberty blockers with hormones. Treatment guidelines for youth are different for these 2 different categories; blockers specifically contemplate youth changing their minds, etc. It would be helpful if you could clarify when evidence you mention is actually about both categories v. about either one or the other.

Delivered with Blocked & Reported's trademark humour, this is a refreshing takedown of Stewart and Oliver's propaganda slots on the trans issue.

I wonder is Jessy and Katie are going to choose this episode to acknowledge that the majority of their opinions on the trans issue are copies exactly from Graham Linehan circa 2018... probably not.

Those two coffee shop kids didn't sound brainwashed to me, they sounded friggin' terrified. Tip of the hat to the mother, she clearly doesn't suffers fools lightly.

Another life of a falsely accused guy destroyed by the MeToo mob. But the media and feminists will bury it as usual 🙄

Everyone in the book title that isn't Chapo is solidly right wing. Also, Bari Weiss is almost as Vacuous as Noah.

Being a Zionist deserves nothing but contempt and derision. It's not reductionist as all, fuck your trash water muddying and your apartheid apologetics.

So here's the thing: I know both of you have been treated very unfairly by internet dingbats but Bari Weiss has made a goddamn fool of herself constantly as a matter of public record and quit the (already fairly right wing) NYT because she couldn't get fired. When she did, it was predicted she'd parlay her non-cancellation into a Free Speech racket with likeminded dorks and that's exactly what you're describing. The Chapo guys did their due diligence on this and summed it all up nicely.

Of course they're conservatives. Conservatism doesn't begin and end with Donald Trump.

Lindy West pitched a temper tantrum because she's too fat for airplane seats. One of the great luminaries of the 21st century.
