    The British whinging is being funded by American evangelicals so... purposeful manufacture for export purposes.

    Look, American evangelicals are awful on many things, especially this, but let's not let the British TERFS off the hook by pinning this on our shit.

    I don't see how pointing out that American fundamentalist groups are funding transphobic organizations overseas absolves anyone who is a part of those overseas transphobic organizations.

    Well it used to be Doctor Who, but now it's only on every other year.

    Oh brilliant

    Relevant.

    edit: Also I know it's a joke but I would 100% watch a movie where Jason kills and thus has to become Santa just like his fellow 80s horror icon Tim Allen.

    I still think the best possible translation of IOI's Hitman into other media is just the Columbo format

    show us the villain first, how they are a horrible person, how they've covered up what they've done and sure they've gotten away with it

    and then comes 47 to slowly deconstruct their carefully managed clockwork lives

    add to that a few intense action-horror segments where Agent 47 is treated like Jason Voorhees, an antagonist gunning after the bad-guy rather than a John Wick unwilling hero, and you've got yourself a show, baby

    Because if you are not careful, you wind up saying that it's not really their fault, it's because they're being manipulated by outside actors. American dominionists weren't the ones who made mumsnet a hive of villainy, even if they did lend support.

    It didn't take long for me to realise that Law & Order: Criminal Intent was just Columbo

    so many crime procedurals have been chasing that Columbo magic for decades in one way or another, to lesser or greater success.

    Still holding out hope for a Columbo reboot with Mark Ruffalo in the titular role. It's perfect

    I don't give a particular shit about the Olympics, I think it's corrupt from the top down and it enables human suffering and financial waste on a massive scale

    However, I do love Woodkid and music that makes you feel like you can do anything

    Leverage comes the closest, I've felt. Need more TV that centers around heists and bastards getting got.

    Well that's not what I'm doing.

    Anyway, CaseyExplosion did aTwitter thread the other day examining the seamless pivot from opposing gay marriage to trans panic. Plenty of good references there if you weren't already aware of the history:

    Now, Shaun does a real good video, but something I'd add is that yes a lot of GCs think that trans issues just didn't exist until 2015 because (insert conspiracy theory here) and the reason for is simple:

    The religious right lost on marriage equality and changed tactics.
