We were always about businessmen using the military for their own profit.

It's just that it's now impossible to deny that we're a fascist kleptocracy after the Trump disaster laid it bare.

I imagine anything that makes you feel like you're socially isolated is going to give a teen a very bad time.

Things have improved (at least as well as I can tell) since I was a kid.  Though we have our MAGA-equivalents, we still appear to generally be on a course for continued improvement.

Not to worry.  American Christians are famous for their love and tolerance of those who are different.

Maybe post WW2.  Before that, you're just farking ignorant.

That makes perfect sense.

i think that any teen with a heart and mind is at risk of suicidal thoughts in a nightmare world like this one

they don't have the capacity to balance it out with Buddah-like laughter at the absurdity of existence

that only comes with years of luck and jadedness

When I was a kid, being trans was something that you either dealt with through a lot of repression and denial, or you killed yourself before anyone could find out. Very, very few were brave or fortunate enough to live authentically.

Now I feel like trans kids have been bait and switched. There was a time in the 2010s where transness gained a lot of visibility and acceptance, and then a massive backlash that's been absolutely devastating.
