    Epigenetics might explain the second-generation thing. I'm glad my mother was as indifferent to medical fads as I am; DES was not on her radar.

He feels current trans activist rhetoric plays that down. He relates how testosterone caused his uterus and vagina to fuse, trapping bio waste. Made him sick with septis and he nearly died.

    As for Blair, I just love her. Love that girl!
    I think that was the video I watched last week or so--Triggernometry? Talk about cautionary tales!

    Me too but no country school. Don't understand why my parents started me in school at age 4?

    Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern science fantasy series. Had read it in college and into the early 2000s but had forgotten about them. Saw mention of them online and started them again. Forgot how much I had enjoyed them.

    Oh right, that’s it. For some reason this particular Blair White video came to the top of my YouTube suggest list, but I have watched Blair for a couple of years. Granted she is a provocateur/influencer to make money, but she’s also a reasonable voice in the LGBTQ etc. world.

    edited to add: your link is one of the two Blair and Buck videos I watched, but Triggernomitry is a different video.

    I actually graduated high school in three years. We were called "graduating juniors".

    This was one of my favorite series as a teen! I still have most of the originals in paperback. I think she started co-writing with her son?? I haven't read any of those.

    If you were a chimera couldn't you actually have organs with different DNA (male and female even). DES hasn't been used in decades. So we are talking early Gen X and boomers.

    Latest read was The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx. I loved this book so much; it made my heart happy! I hadn't realized that it won a Pulitzer.
    I would put it in my top four this year along with A Gentleman in Moscow, News of the World, and The Lightkeepers.

    I just got Malcolm Nance's They Want to Kill Americans; I expect it to be prescient and chilling, like his earlier books in this series.
