"Er... not particularly. For that to be effective, the hormone treatment would likely have to be given during fetal development when it could more thoroughly effect structural brain development, as well as other physiological developments. It would…"

"As a medical professional, I can tell you that surgically constructed sausage-wallets differ widely from the free-range variety. Or... narrowly? Shallow? Hrmph. Let's just say that when attempting to determine a source of vaginal bleeding on…"

Michael B. replied to Regular Joe's discussion "Heritage Not Hate" - Who's Trolling Who? in the group The Great Debate
"That's a suspect claim, since the majority of industry, transportation, and population resided in the North. Agriculture isn't much of a "tax base." Especially when a good chunk of the population was human property, not tax…"

Michael B. replied to manInTheMaking's discussion Old Spice Commercials in the group The Great Debate
"Well, for one they had a few with the Manliest chin in Hollywood, Bruce Campbell, a few years back. Not to mention, Old Spice was one of "Dad's Colognes." The Old Spice Whistle is my message alert on my phone, everyone knows it."

Michael B. replied to John Muir's discussion Donald Trump Is A Greedy, Creepy, Ignorant Jerk in the group The Great Debate
"Maybe his game is to say what the other candidates can't, so that it's platform... but it's not? Kind of a red herring to get the base fired up. Which... is funny. The strategists always talk about "firing up the base." The…"

"3/4 siblings in my family have college degrees and earn at least 3 times what our parents did. If the "American Dream" is dead, it's because the Americans who haven't achieved are too busy dreaming to achieve. Gawd, that…"

Michael B. replied to Mongoose's discussion NYC Mayor Wants to Ban Smoking in Your Own Home in the group The Great Debate
"Bah. Tripe. Even attempting to account for "healthcare costs." Smokers die sooner on average, and incur less cost in healthcare over time than people that live longer, healthier lives. They are also at lower risk for Alzheimer's and…"

Michael B. replied to Pale Horse's discussion The Supreme Court's Decision on Marriage in the group The Great Debate
"You do know how loosely the courts have played interstate commerce before? For squashing Jim Crow, a business that purchased anything that came from out of state and resold it was classified as being involved in interstate commerce."

Michael B. replied to Pale Horse's discussion The Supreme Court's Decision on Marriage in the group The Great Debate
"Precisely. And that is exactly what the freedom of religion clause is for - so that the Catholics can't tell the Baptists what to do through law, nor the other way around... well that and the history of the churches in Europe..."

Michael B. replied to Pale Horse's discussion Double Standards in Racism/Sectarianism in the group The Great Debate
"Or Olberman or Limbaugh - as they are not "newscasters" but "commentators." Limbaugh is quick to remind people, when his nuts get slammed in the drawer, that he is first and foremost a satirist."

"Yup. It's not racism, it's big pharma."

Michael B. replied to Regular Joe's discussion "Heritage Not Hate" - Who's Trolling Who? in the group The Great Debate
"In essence, we haven't driven hate out; we've driven it into hiding, and made it more dangerous? I suppose... in a sense. We've also become selectively apathetic to expressions of hate - so warning signs go largely ignored... and…"

"Meh. Replace "liberal" with "libertarian" and you are closer to the mark. There are far more Randians here than liberals."
