Elon Musk sold 20 000 flamethrowers in 4 days, raising $10M for his struggling car company. The top tweet, of course, is ……. some chick offering to trade titty pics for a flamethrower. How very #MeToo
The Twitter thread on the whole story is actually kind of refreshing. Most people are on board with how fun and badass a flamethrower of your own can be! They are celebrating the enthusiasm and excitement, as well as the entrepreneurial cleverness of Musk, raising $10M with a product 20 000 buyers clearly love.
There are a few killjoys in the mix, to be sure:
This guy seems genuinely concerned.
But even when you filter for verified users, most of the tweets are in the realm of fun and high-spiritedness. Flamethrowers are the preferred tool for practitioners of toxic masculinity and no one seems to mind!
Wait until the feminists show up. Who thinks a lot of crying and screaming is about to get under way? Here’s a hysterical man to get the ball rolling. Who wants to be he’s a feminist?
You know, for once, I would love to be wrong. Why can’t we all be like Maye Musk?
Lots of love,
