Good catch, OP. This "fact check" is just litany of the usual lies one after the other. You're right it's aged badly. I didn't realize Milo was so clear-headed and forthright about the trans movement and the threat it poses to girls and women.

During the appearance, Yiannopoulos misgendered a trans woman he had previously attacked at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, claimed that transgender people suffer from a “psychiatric disorder” and stated he “makes no apologies for protecting women and children from men who are confused about their sexual identity.”

He went on to claim, “women and girls should be protected from having men who are confused about their sexual identities in their bathroom.” And Maher shockingly responded, “That’s not unreasonable.”

Actually, Bill, not only is it “unreasonable,” it’s absolutely untrue and 100 percent indefensible.

I tried to listen to the video debate. Let me link it for you

Milo said TIPs are mentally unwell and got blasted for it.

But if we don’t agree with, actively propagate, upend all of society for, etc a TIPs delusion, they will immediately kill themselves.

And, we need to spend millions per TIP on surgeries and a lifetime of meds for their not-a-condition-condition.

Of course he got blasted. He’s done nothing but hurt our cause. This is the man who had to walk back his defense of 13 year olds as viable sexual partners for adults and was ousted from Breitbart for saying it in the first place.The dude who wrote for Breitbart things like Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy and Would You Rather Your Child Have Feminism or Cancer. The dude who declared his birthday World Patriarchy Day and is fundraising for a gay conversion therapy center because he now says he’s an ‘ex-gay’ and believes homosexuality is a sin.

There’s also the video of him singing America the Beautiful and getting the sieg heil salute from Richard Spencer and his neo-nazi buddies, soliciting ideas for stories from the editor of a white supremacist publication, and other neo-nazi associations.

Also the link to the “only one bathroom attack using the trans self ID ever” links to nothing.

So, if we know of a case, we can just assume that is it that one and they don’t risk telling us about an additional one we didn’t know about

I wish we could hijack the link and send it to ‘this never happens’ circle
