  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    that's a short-term outlook. The LSE, when not currying favour with the government, would tend to agree...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    1) What the absolute fuck for? It positions trans people in toilets as a violent threat that requires a violent response to 'defend' women. TERFs call themselves feminist but if you scratch the surface they have a lot more in...
