> 17 percent. That’s not the homicide rate for female sex workers. That’s the homicide rate for all women.

@cwebber That was my thought too - I hope in 2020 this can be an issue since basically every single senator voted for it except 3 and a bunch of senate democrats are probably going to be fighting for the presidential nomination in 2020

@cwebber Yep. If you support SESTA, you either hate women, are too dumb to be alive, or both.

This goes beyond "I told you so." It's "I told you so AND YOU FUCKING KNEW I WAS RIGHT BUT YOU VOTED FOR IT ANYWAY YOU HOMICIDAL FUCK".

@cwebber

Yeah. That and the fatality rate of 200 per 100,000.

@cwebber Worth reading, but also stomach-turning.

@cwebber Huh, that's a big paper. It's going to take me a while to understand what this is saying in detail. Gonna have to learn #GeneralisedLinearModels, looks like.

@cwebber There is the phenomenon of spurious correlations, which does not imply causation. This is called post hoc fallacy: A occurred, then B occurred...therefore, A caused B. Here are some graphs that may lead to incorrect hypotheses: lazy8.social/media/yDKXuaGPUiQ lazy8.social/media/xQx-5FcWVDs
