… that I remember when the Left described themselves a The Reality-Based Community and informed those who didn’t agree that they were Science Deniers.

BTW, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, lists gender dysphoria as a mental disorder. DSM-V serves as the principal authority for psychiatric diagnoses, and Dr. Blanchard was one of the contributors to the current edition.

Final Score: Science 1, Twitter Safety 0
