“In this unedited conversation with head of TED Chris Anderson, Elon Musk digs into the recent news around his bid to purchase Twitter and gets honest about the biggest regret of his career, how his brain works, the future he envisions for the world and a lot more.”

Well…he knows what the definition and principle of free speech is…Does he have the true conviction to put it into real world action?

“It’s time. See you on the other side. Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1 premieres May 27th, only on Netflix.”

They need to release seasons two and three on DVD…rotten bastards!…

Why have we still only gotten season one?…I refuse to subscribe to Netflix…I want a physical copy, I can watch anytime, as many times as I want.

…And didn’t they already announce there will be a season five?

…Still waiting several years later, to pick up watching this series from the end of season one.

“Breaking News: Elon Musk makes a host of promises while offering $41 billion to buy twitter such as reinstating Donald Trump’s twitter account. Is Elon Musk the free speech advocate we need right now? Probably not.”

Sure…but this is a ton of fun to watch unfold!

If he does take ownership, I just want to know where to contact, to petition for the full restoration of my @EQFoundation account.

Get the stooges out of there…and we’ll see what happens.

This couldn’t have happened to a more deserving platform of abusive a-holes.

When you’ve been unjustly screwed over this bad…it’s all just a shit show to set back and watch…I don’t have any real stake in it, anymore…

…At most, maybe I could openly return and freely use the platform, and MAP related hashtags…Maybe, there would be a wonderful sense of freedom, and finally a return of integrity and respect…Maybe I could resume some of my project lists there…and vindicate myself, by bringing my historic twitter activity back out into the open again…where people can judge it, for what it factually is.

…Maybe I could actively converse with the population again…like I used to…like twitter allegedly exists for.

Landmark LGBT conference in question after conversion therapy ban row…

Thanks to feinmann!

“The Government’s first international LGBT conference could be cancelled after at least 100 organisations pulled out over the “unacceptable” exclusion of transgender people from plans to ban [conversion] therapy.

The PA news agency understands that the future of the global, UK-hosted conference is in question after more than 80 LGBT+ groups withdrew their support, saying they will only participate if the Prime Minister reverts to his promise for a trans-inclusive ban on conversion therapy.

A Government spokesman said it was “disappointing” to see partners quit the event planned for this year and that the Government is “considering how to proceed”.

[…]

It said it is “appalling” that the PM would “so casually walk away from four years of promises to the LGBTQ+ community”.

The charity said: “It is apparent that trans people have once again been sacrificed for political gain.

“Commissioning a separate body of work to unpick something that has already been resolved many times the world over, can only be read as an attempt to kick the issue of protecting trans people into the long grass.

“This is callous and unacceptable.”

It’s interesting who all they stick up for, in the face of who all they’ve thrown under the bus.

I agree that this is a well principled stand, on the part of the LGBTQ+ community…I just wish they had consistent, honest principles, regardless of who the minorities are.
