...and? Seems pretty on-target to me. Explains what it means, gives some examples.

Although "unearned social power" apparently just means "racist bigots will willingly associate with you and/or engage in business deals" so I'm not sure how lucky I feel, even if that is a pretty lucrative market.

i'm sorry but i'm a huge believer in social justice but to turn it into a scorecard of victimhood is absurd and will fix nothing

Well, yeah, it's a bit reductive I suppose.

Still, before one gets all grumpy about "those people" and how they need to _____ to solve their problems, one should remember that not everybody starts from the same place.

I really didn't see that one as any more cringey than most other billboards.

Brian May playing with Tony Iommi. You can't get any more rockstar than that, so I'm gonna get myself some plastic sandals and wear them with socks, and don't you dare calling it "hipster fashion".

Don't feel bad - it's all a mess. If you aren't actively involved in one of these communities, and most people aren't, it turns into a word salad fast.

However, here is a primer:
Homo, as a prefix, comes from the Greek word homos, or "same". (this gets confusing because it can also mean "man")
Hetero comes from the Greek word heteros, or "other, different"
Cis is actually a latin prefix meaning "on this side of"
Trans is also Latin, and means "across"

When used in this context, homo/hetero is tied to "sexual", which is bad in several ways (it mixes language roots and isn't very descriptive anyway). Similarly, Cis and Trans are tied to gender, and suffers from the same problems. That said, cisgender means "on the side of" + "your birth gender", while transgender means "across from" + "your birth gender"

Notably, all of these usages assume a binary gender model. If you don't subscribe to that model, or are demonstrably outside of it, all of these terms are as useless as teats on a rain barrel. Unfortunately, the English language, even augmented with Greek and Latin, fails horribly at describing things.

I'd totally buy a modern version of that.

Side note: Everything in the film from equipment, systems, procedures, etc., save for the Russian "doomsday device", was known to be entirely real and operational at the time of filming. Much of it still exists, and additionally, we now know that there was actually a real Russian "doomsday device" that the US did not know about at the time as well.

Thus, the movie would be more accurately described as a "docudrama"

Great movie, one of my all time favorites. Just about every scene and character has some sort of sexual innuendo.
