Just remember -- disagree with him, and he'll want you to stop buying his stuff

Lesser comicbook guy Mark "Go F*** Yourself" Waid shows he is "better" than greater comicbook guy John Byrne:

Of course, Byrne just pulled that idea out of his ass, right? Oh, wait ...

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

And Waid is the author of ... plenty of funny books.

Waid'll probably tell Dr. McHugh never to buy any of them now, too.

Just remember, contrary to the claim that "progressives" are the "party of science": To the radical "progressive" set, it's more important to believe the "right" things than to believe actual facts.

(Note: I could care less what transgendered people do or want, as long as they leave me alone. And, "progressives" are not unique in believing the "right" things over facts. But they're the ones who actually boast about being the party of the latter.)

The funny thing is, John Byrne used to be pretty infamous for being a major hothead and argumentative with anyone who disagrees with him. Not to say he still isn't like that, but idiots like Waid have outdone him.

I think you missed Eric Larson's reply too. ;)

Larsen has had a beef w/Byrne for some time, hasn't he?

If only he had as much talent ...

I think that was mentioned in the comic history 2 vid, Hube.

;-) Told you you should watch it.

What, specifically, Nate? That Byrne was (is) a hothead? Every one is (or was) at one point in their career. Some just take it to the Nth level ...

Whoops, my bad, I has misremembered the Byrne/Claremont fight as having Larson involved. I think he may have been mentioned in the first part, I'll rewatch.
