Be mad if you want, but don't act mad at them. At least, not visibly.

I always like to throw in a few "possible but not guaranteed" squares to keep things suspenseful for us. :)
I've got a piece by Mira Lazine on Assigned today, taking apart the latest study by ROGD researcher Lisa Littman.
Littman's work started poorly, with a survey of unsupportive parental attitudes about their trans kids which she claimed provided evidence of a new form of gender dysphoria.
If you use a Windows or Linux device, it's vulnerable to a new post-exploit attack that can remotely install an undetectable backdoor at the UEFI level. Updates from just about every vendor available today. Impressive work from @matrosov and the rest of Binarly.
