Political-driven science is just propaganda with technical vocabulary.

More than a thousand people reported lasting health effects after being exposed to teargas during protests in Portland, Oregon, last summer, according to a newly published scientific study.

Nearly 900 people reported abnormal menstrual cycles, including intense cramping and increased bleeding, that began or persisted days after their initial exposure to the teargas. Hundreds of others complained of other negative health impacts, including severe headaches, nausea, diarrhea, and mental health concerns.

Hundreds report abnormal menstruation after being teargassed during Portland protests

Hundreds of what? Maybe we get a mention of gender somewhere?

The new research, based on an online survey of more than 2,200 people, challenges claims that the health consequences of being teargassed are minor and temporary, said Dr Britta Torgrimson-Ojerio, a researcher at Kaiser Permanente Northwest and the lead author of the study.

Nope, not here.

Participants in racial justice protests against police violence last summer in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Rochester and other cities told media outlets that their exposure to teargas had been followed by unexpected bleeding, unusually painful cramps, and other disruptions of their typical menstrual cycles.

Neither here, but this is important stuff!

The results of the Portland study, including the new link between teargas and menstruation, are an important contribution to the scientific research on teargas, which has primarily been tested on younger men in military and police settings, said Sven-Eric Jordt, a professor of anesthesiology at Duke University.

I am pretty sure the US Military and police have had women now for some time, but we must trust the scientists, right? Important stuff like this is surely based in accurate information provided by direct observation and medical testing.

The new study, published in BMC Public Health, has some limitations. The results are based on an anonymous online survey, so researchers were not able to independently confirm the identities of the respondents, Torgrimson-Ojerio said.

So basically this study has the validity of one of those Facebook polls that promises to tell you what type of dog were you in a past life according the the answers you give.

  1. Moot point anyway.

    Oh? Little protestor having a hard time with a little tear gas after a long summer of mostly peacefully protesting?? How about we call Science and he’ll kiss it better???


    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

  2. Jesus. Is this what science has been reduced to? Online polling?

    Newton weeps.

    If you need a palate cleanser, Internet Historian has a humorous roundup of why online polling is not always a good idea. https://youtu.be/HiTqIyx6tBU

  3. “Maybe we get a mention of gender somewhere?”

    How sad is it, that that’s where my mind went first … Waitaminute, men can menstruate now, apparently … so does tear gas cause men to menstruate?

    “..one of those Facebook polls that promises to tell you what type of dog were you in a past life according the the answers you give.”

    You mean one of those polls / surveys that gathers bundleable and marketable personal information? Or that’s fishing for passwords in the form of pet names?

    I’ve said elsewhere, I’ve come to think deploying tasers to police was a mistake, for several reasons. I’m starting to wonder similar things about crowd control nonlethals, at least after the first night of riots.

    ETA: And one thing I really, really resent the Left for, is how they’ve managed to harden my heart and are making inroads on turning me into a racist.

    1. You nailed it! I was thinking the same thing! “My friend Frank has has odd menstrual cycles since Xi/frer/whatthe’F’ever got gassed while burning the Federal courhouse!”

    2. Re your last paragraph:
      Most of the “white racism” we see today is constructed.
      Get treated differentyl all your live and get told you are a bad person for beeing white will do that to you.

      See how career criminals walk free while you have to be careful not to get fucked by the IRS, police or some low level totalitarian bureaucrat will do that.

  4. No mention of gender… Like when the J&J vaccine was paused or pulled for every one when the few reported side effects were in women?
