So he starts a thread accusing queer people of racism.

Then he says being queer does not give you permission to be racist. True as a general statement, but the framing suggests the people he just accused are using queerphobia as a shield from criticism, thus pre-emptively discrediting his victims.

And then he mockingly calls his victims "confused" for thinking his statements apply to them (which he claims they did not, but do now).

This is harassment, gaslighting, and transphobia.

Classic abuser tactic. He sounds oh so reasonable & caring, whilst gaslighting & manipulating his audience & victims.

De minister heeft de motie om onbekende redenen ontraden. Bizar. We stemmen volgende week."

"So I know a lot of doctors that when they can’t figure something out, they kind of take out frustrations inappropriately on patients. I've seen that. ME/CFS patients have come to see me, and share the same story all the time. They say “my doctor says it’s all in my head”, and they get this kind of psychologising of their physical illness, they get send to a psychiatrist or psychologist […]"

I had a physically active lifestyle & was working on my thesis before I got "mild" .

Now I'm mostly bedridden with severe and almost all of these symptoms. I can't even read books any more, let alone finish my thesis.

About 10-20% of people get long-term symptoms after COVID. Being healthy and/or vaccinated does not protect you.

Please protect yourself & others from getting infected in the first place.
