Waiting for the Teslabros to come in with the “but he makes such good cars and is so innovative and he is saving the world with so many great things and is such a visionary and is so smart and so what if he’s a terrible person” posts in 3…2…1…
It’s entirely possible (and depressing) that it’s precisely because he’s a terrible person that he is driven (hah) to presume that regular norms do not, therefore, apply to him (cf. Donald Trump etc. etc.)
Of course, one doesn’t have to have inherited a fortune to be a terrible person (I would say “Kyle Rittenhouse” here but I suspect that this might get me into trouble, so pretend I never said that) but it does seem to magnify the problem somewhat.
You don’t need to be a terrible person to break norms and do amazing things. It’s just that those people who are sociopathic assholes like Musk are often better at marketing themselves to make the conversation about them.
I delivered many catering gigs at that plant, round 2011. The fuckery assholiness that we witnessed was disturbing, very. One bro-guy stood on a chair & said at the top of his lungs when the clean up began “It’s hotel motel time” to a table that the ladies had took refuge at, the mere fact that they didn’t even look up/react at this asshole spook volumes to us.
So that Musk fragrance when you sit in a new Tesla is actually testosterone?
No that is commonly know as mangina fragrance, the tech bros love that shit.
My many apologies in advance.
That terrible-substitute-for-a-workable-public-transit-concept-like-a-train is never late.
Sell stock to fix world hunger, issue stock to fund the remedy to misogyny? Nobody rightclick the trial DAO by accident, it might be sup’n good! But is it the Plaintiff’s?
“more resembles a…frat house than a cutting-edge company in the heart of the progressive San Francisco Bay area”
Not to over-generalize, but “frat house” has kind of been tech culture’s “thing” for a long time now.
DEFINITELY a Freudian slip. Let it stand.
As someone from tech who is searching for a new landing spot, his companies simultaneously attract and repulse me. I wouldn’t be surprise if a “spectrum defense” appears on the road ahead. To put it in Bay Area terms, like the twinkie one.
Wait, the makers of cars named Model S,3,X,Y have a culture of sexual harassment?
They can’t get into their electric golf carts…
My understanding is the only reason they went with 3 was because someone else already had the trademark on “Model E”.
Catpiss. It’s Catpiss.
