A three-panel comic strip. In the first panel, a man in a suit (Alex Jones) is sitting at a desk with a banner behind him that says “Info Wars”. Offscreen, someone says “Cut!! That’s a wrap for today!”

In the second panel, “later”, Jones asks a green frog washing dishes “Everything ok, babe?”

In the third panel, the frog cries and demands “How long do we have to hide who we are??”

Pesticide atrazine can turn male frogs into females

Atrazine, one of the world’s most widely used pesticides, wreaks havoc with the sex lives of adult male frogs, emasculating three-quarters of them and turning one in 10 into females, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, biologists.

The 75 percent that are chemically castrated are essentially “dead” because of their inability to reproduce in the wild, reports UC Berkeley’s Tyrone B. Hayes, professor of integrative biology.

    Thanks for sharing the “Frog Truth”, OP. Of all the insane things AJ has said over the years, I always found it funny that this seemingly deranged claim was actually the one that had a kernel of truth to it.

    You make your best life with that frog, or you let that frog go. The frog deserves better, Alex!

    loves oil companies = loves gay frogs.

    Also wasn’t the whole thing proven to be untrue? I recall reading a couple years ago about a study found unpolluted areas had similar rates of sex change to polluted areas. Apparently frogs just change sex

      Saw someone actually dig into this. There’s a lab that makes the pesticides that cause the harm. They’ve convinced Congress to raise the bar on how experiments must be done for this research to require expensive equipment, so your average independent or university researcher couldn’t afford to produce results- but the big corporate lab can.

      when have we ever needed any kind of study to know that this dude lies? that’s literally all he does. claiming anything this cunt says is true is an extraordinary claim which requires extraordinary evidence. otherwise I’ll just assume he’s lying.
