Third rail  
They used to say that Social Security was the third rail of American politics: touch it and you die. To some extent the Republicans found a form of virtual rubber gloves by suggesting that Social Security could be improved by attaching it to the ever-increasing free enterprise stock market, although for some reason that idea lost favor in 2008.

Now there’s another one. Milo Yiannopoulos, having spewed enough hatred for POC, Jews, Muslims, women, and Trans* people that decent human beings would have nothing to do with him, suddenly lost millions of others by coming out in favor of adult/teen sex (and specifically adult/teen gaysex, which presumably is even worse), saying it worked for him when he was 14. He lost a book contract and a couple of jobs, and now we’re hearing that what’s wrong with Lord Dampnut and his lovable sidekick Bannon Boy is that they have Milo cooties.

As always, the rule is clearly "dead girl or live boy", since trump's admitted sexual assaults on teenaged girls gets ignored.

Yes, I noticed that. All the other horrendous things he's said didn't bother them, but this one was going too far.

When I read the word Trans*, I immediately looked to the bottom of the post for the footnote.
