When you start turning over stones looking for one thing, you may find other creepy crawlies you didn't expect, which probably means that it may contain tidbits of other shenanigans that would be inconvenient if it became public knowledge.

From a Trump campaign newsletter.

Friend,

I have something very important to tell you.

You have always been one of my most loyal and trusted supporters since the very beginning. Again and again, you have proven yourself each and every time the Democrats and their Fake News friends come after me and my administration with their blatant LIES and vicious attacks.

With the Trumpees, you don't have to turn over the rock for the creepy crawlies; they are right out in the sunlight on the surface...

Republicans: We need to find some statement that totally discredits Biden
Republicans: A statement that he is totally discredited and not worthy of respect
Republicans: Like, a real slam dunk of a soundbite

Intern watching TV: Hold on, I got just the thing

Republicans: That's great, run with it

Yes, you heard it here first: Sanders saying that Biden will be the most progressive president since FDR is somehow meant to be an argument against Biden.....

Republicans: We believe in a minimal federal government. Local self-government should be the rule, and any attempts by the federal government to assert its primacy must be resisted.

Trump: Because crime exists, we will go in and take over the cities if we have to.

Republicans: Yes, this is good and completely consistent with our beliefs

Don jnr's tweet that Joe Biden couldn't debate Baron Trump.

Apart from the whole self own that was Don one's tweet from last year about leaving minor out of politics, which they should be.

Don jnr was also damn correct. On Jason's chosen topic Joe Biden couldn't debate him. But then neither could Don she, one, Eric, or Ivanka.

Don jnr, thinks a statement of fact that also applies to him is the ultimate put down.

Topic Change.
Teenage boy diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, given estrogen. Now needs surgery on breasts.

So, reading the linked article, it looks like the "treatment" for ODD was at best a mistake and at worst, an experiment to force transgender reassignment. The doctor in charge has gone silent and a medical malpractice case is in progress.
On a side note, Estrogen is not generally regarded as a valid option for ODD.

But is there only one case, or are there more?

Tim Pool had a few comments about it.

US Prisoners are treated worse than slaves, it is not surprising to me that someone would try to do some unethical experiments on them too.

Second Amendment fanatics: We need to private gun ownership to deter tyrannical overreach from the government. If we didn't have it, why, the government would just start abducting people it didn't like!

Federal government: *Sends federal agents out on missions to abduct people on flimsy pretexts*

Second Amendment fanatics: Well, they were probably bad people, so good job federal government!
