Elon Musk’s Ignorant Tweet About Pronouns

It’s so easy…not to say anything.

Welp, girls, gays, allies, and theys, it looks like Elon Musk is back on his ignorant bullshit again, because recently, for some reason, he shared this tweet about personal pronouns. Mind you, he was in no way, shape, or form invited into this conversation, and yet, he spoke:

Like…I’m not exactly sure what the narrative is here? Are you pro or are you dumb?

And then, because he’s Elon, he decided to dig his hole EVEN deeper when he responded to an article calling him out for his ignorance:

@cleantechnica I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare

I personally do not care what Elon thinks re: the aesthetic of one’s pronouns — especially coming from a man who gave his baby a name that most people cannot pronounce — but I DID enjoy all the tweets roasting Elon:


This, from the guy who leaned on his keyboard and was like, “That’s a great baby name.”


Imagine naming your infant son “X Æ A-12,” and then complaining about how hard it is to call trans people by the right pronouns.


man named his child after a tracking number and he’s worried about pronouns


@elonmusk @cleantechnica Fellas, what’s more an aesthetic nightmare?

Using words that already exist in the English language, or giving your kid a name that sounds like a rejected Doctor Who character?


Not you being worried about “esthetics” when you named your baby Bang Bang Boogie Say Up Jumped The Boogie To The Rhythm Of The Boogie The Beat


@elonmusk @cleantechnica So you a billionaire, is mad about people having preferred pronouns? You named your child like a type of software system but pronouns are an issue?


are you familiar with languages that feature formal/informal pronoun distinctions as well as male/female/neuter singular pronouns e.g. idk afrikaans

Writer’s note: In case you didn’t know, Elon is South African, where the primary language is, you guessed it, Afrikaans.


imagine the guy who created this talking about “esthetic nightmare”s


@Lefty_Jew @elonmusk @cleantechnica If I lived in a glass house I would simply not toss stones.


cis people learning to pronounce X Æ A-12 vs cis people learning to refer to a singular person as “they”


In conclusion:

After what you initially named your own child, this tweet is truly ironic.

Taylor Swift Moved Album Release For Paul McCartney

“It’s a nice thing to do.”

Here is a nice story involving two absurdly famous people, Taylor Swift and Sir Paul McCartney.

Last month, these two megastars appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s “Musicians on Musicians” issue.

Clearly, they get along great. So great, in fact, that they were able to work through a potential conflicting release date on their new albums.

Speaking on The Howard Stern Show this week, the former Beatle shared that Taylor had originally moved the surprise release of Evermore so as to not conflict with McCartney III, Paul’s new album which is scheduled for release tomorrow.

“Taylor just emailed me recently, and she said, ‘I wasn’t telling anyone, but I’ve got another album,'” Paul recalled. “And she said, ‘So I was going to put it out on my birthday.’ And then she said, ‘But I found out you were going to put [your album] out on the 10th. So I moved it to the 18th.'”

But wait! A twist! “And then she found out we were coming out on the 18th, so she moved back to the 10th,” he continued. “So I mean, you know, people do keep out of each other’s way. It’s a nice thing to do.”

So there you have it. For a brief moment in time, Taylor gave up her birthday-adjacent release date for Paul McCartney. It IS a nice thing to do!


Presumably, nobody made her do it.

Also important: Paul McCartney knew Evermore was coming before anyone else did and, because he’s cool, kept it a secret.

Just so we’re clear though, since I know details are important: Even though Paul is talking about Dec. 10, Evermore was released on Dec. 11.

And, of course, Taylor’s birthday isn’t actually the exact release date, since she was born Dec. 13.

Still, a big weekend for her!

I can’t imagine there’s a ton of overlap between the Swifties and hardcore McCartney stans, so this might just be a case of one musician being nice to another one just because.

You could say that Paul McCartney gets by with a little help from his friend, Taylor Swift.

I’m sorry, I had to.

Reasons To Watch The Flight Attendant Immediately

HBO Max is gonna be on Roku really soon — like, if you’re reading this, it’s probably on there right now. (There’s a Playstation 5 app now too, for all you gamers out there.)

So if you’re accessing the service for the first time, there’s a lot for you to catch up on. But just hear me out for a second: You should start with The Flight Attendant, the Kaley Cuoco comedic thriller about a flight attendant who gets in way over her head. (The finale hits HBO Max on December 17.) Here’s a few reasons why.

View this video on YouTube

WarnerMedia / YouTube / Via

1. It’s a breeze to watch

Phil Caruso / WarnerMedia

The Flight Attendant is one of the more briskly-paced TV shows to come out this year, launching viewers right into the action and never letting up. Trust me, you’ll get sucked into this one immediately.

2. Kaley Cuoco


That’s it. That’s the Tweet. Seriously, though: Cuoco turns in an incredible performance as The Flight Attendant‘s titular protagonist Cassie Bowden — witty, charming, and above all else totally real. She’s impossible not to root for.

3. And Rosie Perez!!!

Phil Caruso / WarnerMedia

Rosie Perez, what a legend. Admit it — every time you see her in something, you’re happy to see her doing her thing. Great actor, and without giving too much away, her character adds an interesting wrinkle to The Flight Attendant‘s twisty thriller framework.

4. It’s funny

Colin Hutton / WarnerMedia

The Flight Attendant traffics in some grim stuff as far as its central whodunit plotline — murder, intrigue, the whole deal — but Cuoco’s impeccable comic timing as well as crackling teleplays keep the laughs coming.

5. But it deals with heavy stuff really well, too

Colin Hutton / WarnerMedia

Don’t let the claims that The Flight Attendant is campy fool you: This show deals with some serious stuff — trauma, familial abuse, and alcoholism. And it does so magnificently, aided no doubt by Cuoco’s performance.

6. Also, just a really great performance from T.R. Knight

Phil Caruso / WarnerMedia

Yup, 007 is back — but Knight’s turn as Cassie’s brother Davey is very devastating, especially as the siblings’ harrowing past is unearthed throughout the show.

7. So many twists your head will friggin’ spin

Phil Caruso / WarnerMedia

Seriously. If you’re looking to be surprised at nearly every turn, tune in to this one. The Flight Attendant is actually perfect for this time of year: It’s holiday-neutral, soapy, affecting, funny, and you will be left gasping as to what comes next. Queue it up now, or regret it forever.
