Re: Good reasons to be nervous.
But Reptiles are such a fascinating Class of Vertebrates!

But aren't we witnessing before our eyes their devolution into invertebrates? Witness the widespread loss of any spine among them, especially in such notable specimens as Lindsey Graham and Kevin McCarthy.

And ironically it's happening in creationist fashion, in that it's working on the individual level instead of the population level (though their newly acquired spinelessness has spread faster through the population than the Omicron variant ever could).

How about Repellants?

A more descriptive one that I've heard might be "Repugnants".

Re: Good reasons to be nervous.
I was following the pattern Tanpteryx gave with his "Repellants."

What I've heard in the wild is something like "Repugnicans", which makes the connection more apparent.

Repugnican has been around for a long time. We used it with Newt Gingrich.

Good thing then that I didn't try to claim having come up with it. Like Trump saying he invented the term, "priming the pump", himself (Yeah, like he would have ever had to work a water pump).
