  1. If trans activists say declarations of fact (such...

    If trans activists say declarations of fact (such as that humans cannot change sex) are a "problem", then it is they who are the problem, not the utterance of facts.
  2. Excuses are for when you've done something wrong,...

    So the excuse is "I was ignorant of the impact of my statement and demand my right to remain ignorant"?[/QUOTE]

    Excuses are for when you've done something wrong, and 'impact' does not override the...
  3. Whether or not white people qua white people get...

    Certainly not in contemporary academia, where racist CRT reigns as the dominant narrative.[/QUOTE]

    Whether or not white people qua white people get "enough good press", it's certainly the case...
  4. D is always the answer.

    Right...and yet you still figured out that D was the answer with the edit....and in the process you learned that the real world is bigger than your world.[/QUOTE]

    D is always the answer.
  5. Um, no. You did not specify population...

    Well, at least this time you didn't blame your errors on everyone else in the forum talking about racial segregation. I'll take what I can get. Baby steps.[/QUOTE]

    Um, no. You did not specify...
  6. I posted an answer based on your original...

    I posted an answer based on your original scenario. That you edited the scenario while I was composing my response is not my problem. You also then had the hide to post a 'hurry up and respond to my...
  7. I didn't re-do my analysis after your edit,...

    They are not excuses. Excuses are for when I did something wrong. They are reasons I did the thing in the way I did.



    Non. Since different risks can be defined, there are different ways to...
  8. Of course the exception is a possible consequence...

    Of course the exception is a possible consequence of my preferred policy, but it is not the usual consequence. To say I prefer a policy where [exception] happens is a deliberately dishonest framing.
  9. No, your framing was dishonest. You said: ...

    It was not an accurate description of the consequences of my principles. It's a dishonest one, implying I'm glad when the policy sometimes means a lower-risk person is favoured over a higher-risk...
  10. I very clearly based my response and mathematics...

    My math is not wrong, let alone "again". Everybody's death rate was a function of D's death rate. You said it, and I'll quote you:



    Stop what you are doing. Just stop it. Stop the blatant...
  11. Jesus titty fucking Christ. Fuck my tits, ass,...

    Jesus titty fucking Christ. Fuck my tits, ass, and mouth. You cannot be fucking saying this again. You can-fucking-not be. I did not fucking draw any fucking conclusions except that just as Vermont...
  12. I didn't say Vermont had to be race blind. I said...

    I didn't say Vermont had to be race blind. I said it shouldn't discriminate by race in the distribution of life-saving bennies over which it has exclusive control.

    Since everyone 12+ in Vermont is...
  13. Gospa moja. It does. It's why you had to edit it:...

    Gospa moja. It does. It's why you had to edit it: because I read your words and not your mind.



    Non. You failed to specify the parameters of your scenario.



    There could be a billion...
  14. It changes it utterly. But in fact, you still...

    It changes it utterly. But in fact, you still haven't made it clear. Group D gets it at 1,000,000x the rate but do they then have a rate (as a spreader) similar to that multiple to other groups?

    ...
  15. I posted my first response before that edit was...

    Look at the edit I made > 20 minutes ago. Understand why the answer is still D?[/QUOTE]

    I posted my first response before that edit was complete. Otherwise, the quote...
  16. Your edit completely changes the scenario. It...

    It depends on whether your death rates are conditional or unconditional. Are your denominators the people in the group that gets the disease, or the people in the group?

    For the avoidance of...
  17. It was not an accurate description of the...

    It was not an accurate description of the consequences of my principles. It's a dishonest one, implying I'm glad when the policy sometimes means a lower-risk person is favoured over a higher-risk...
  18. What is the "it"? To be very honest, you...

    What is the "it"?

    To be very honest, you saying it's "grasping at straws" to talk about population density as a factor in vaccine distribution, reads like you're grasping at straws to contradict...
  19. No: your dishonest framing of the consequence is...

    No: your dishonest framing of the consequence is what I find grubby. You framed it as if the policy I preferred was chosen on the race of the people favoured.



    It's true I don't live in a...
  20. It depends on whether your death rates are...

    I would rate D and C highest priority outcomes. I would not rate B and A at all (in a statistical model to examine risk and provide a framework for vaccine priority), except for their effects on...
  21. I would rate D and C highest priority outcomes. I...

    No. That is the exact opposite of what I've been arguing. At each stage of its vaccine rollout, the grouping next most at risk -[/QUOTE]

    Full Stop. "At risk" of what?

    Here are four choices and...
  22. Your framing was deliberately dishonest. You...

    Your framing was deliberately dishonest. You said:



    As if my preference was that white people at lower risk should be preferred to BIPOC people at higher risk, as if my preference was based on...
  23. No. That is the exact opposite of what I've been...

    Yes, I realise that to be true of all the priority groupings and I have not denied it. There are some 65 year olds more at risk than some 75 year olds. I never suggested that everyone in a priority...
  24. Fruitful.

    Yes, it was.[/quote]

    No, it wasn't.



    No, it wasn't.
  25. Thanks for the tautology, but I'm not interested...

    Thanks for the tautology, but I'm not interested in hearing 'Vermont succeeded because it succeeded'.



    Stop. Yes, it's discrimination by race. It is discrimination by definition.



    Yes,...
