musk, transphobia, buying twitter, timeline 

Catch me if I'm wrong, but here's the timeline on Musk buying Twitter *plus* the transphobia stuff so far:
- Musk's kid comes out as trans to family it seems? (backporting that info)
- Musk complains: pronoun use is annoying
- Grimes tries to get a public apology
- Musk doesn't apologize, starts posting more stuff in that category
- Grimes starts dating *Chelsea Manning*
- Musk ups the amount of transphobic content
- Babylon bee kicked off Twitter for transphobic article, Musk says later this is what convinced him to buy Twitter
- Musk starts musing out loud on the internet that he should buy twitter for "free speech" reasons
- Musk buys a bunch more stake in Twitter, more or less makes a public offer on this over Twitter itself
- Twitter board initially pushes back on the idea
- Musk starts demeaning the board and high-level Twitter employees very publicly on Twitter while increasing his brag about how he can fix everything
- Twitter board reverses course: you know what, let's take all that money
- Musk formally makes the offer
- Musk talks more about how he's going to fix all the spam, bots, etc *while* also absolutely free speech, everything is allowed filter mechanism unclear
- Starts backpedaling: well, he can't buy it unless certain positions are upheld, starts complaining about fake users
- He already signed it though, poison pill clause means he may be on the hook to pay even if he tries to back out
- A lot more waffling on whether or not Twitter is being forthcoming about information not required ahead of time it seems?
And then in about one day:
- Outing (in a crappy article) about Musk's kid being trans
- Twitter signs deal to sell to Musk
- Musk lays off Tesla employees for vague reasons related to the economy

Did I get that timeline right?

Help with everything ($) 

I'm an Autistic individual with white privilege finally recovering from a major injury that has prevented me working.

I need help with food, internet, phone, storage... everything, really. Adds up to about $450 before the 14th. Can you help?

I have a GoFundMe here that goes into more detail:

Please give to a Black, Indigenous, or otherwise racially marginalized person first.

Thank you.

@mutualaid #MutualAid

I finished it. Some mixed feelings, some things aren't *bad* just not *great*.

(still) Need financial help, urgent, please boost 

Hey everyone, I’m sorry I’m asking for help so soon again, I got some additional overdraft fees (thankfully they didn’t put me back in overdraft so I might have these gone next month 🤞) in my bank account and wasn’t able to buy groceries before they did.

I don’t get paid until more than a week, and my boyfriend is out of money too. I think between 80 and 100€ would help us a lot to get through.

Sorry again for posting these so often. I have a hard time keeping up with my finances and I should really sort my stuff…

You can donate on my PayPal:
or through ko-fi, which takes credit cards via Stripe:

Boosting so more people see this would help a whole lot even if you can’t donate <3

Good morning

I wish you the courage to be angry when somebody crosses your boundaries.

every year or two they just introduce some new celebrity, some magazine just shows up with a picture of them on the cover like "this is the new famous person who is not only going to be famous for the next 2-10 years, but is somehow already famous despite nobody having heard of them until right now" and everyone's like "ah yeah, i believe this, this seems legit, i totally buy into this, i guess this is the new famous person who's famous. i'm down with that. thanks for keeping me updated"
