Pfft. You don't still believe in meteors, do you?

Not round ones.

That can't be Trump. His mouth is closed.

"There's no such thing as biological race," maybe, but as presented it's as reasonable as saying, "There's no such thing as religion," or, "There's no such thing as money."

Just because something is mostly or entirely a social construct doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Having bad ideas is a social construct. Doesn't mean it needs to exist.

I agree that many social constructs are bad ideas that shouldn't exist, but that's not a world you can bring about by simply pretending they're already gone.

I should have said "persist" instead of "exist".

It's not female-coded. It's idiot-coded.
... in war the screams are loud and harsh and in peace the wail is so drawn-out we tell ourselves we hear nothing.

Right. That's the kink in the chain. And the distaste is not specifically masculine either.
