What do we think about this then?  On the one hand some sub-par Glinner moaning about gender issues in a very moronic and childish way whilst loads of people complain about it that you just want to say "just don't fucking read twitter!!!!" to, on the other it's highlighted some interesting points (which the high court has agreed with) about rights to freedom of speech.


Also, musos note this is NOT the same Harry Miller who was a bassist active on the British jazz scene.  He's dead now.


Also-also - Lib Dem and trans rights campaigner Helen Belcher, who was interviewed on BBC news about it, did a talk at my work a few years ago, although it was more broadly about LGBT+ as opposed to specifically trans stuff.

Ohhh, I think most of us will be on the same page with this one. 

I doubt one P. Walnuts will be, but that doesn't really matter.

My shock take on this is that typing shouldn't be illegal.

We COULD ban Twitter, but then how will we get important updates from Glinner and Steve Brookstein?

I suppose we could sign up to their fanclubs.  Do it old school - fanzines.  £1.50 per issue (plus P&P, obvs).

Lets just say it's a bargain, plus its helping stop terrorism in the middle east.

Twitter contributes nothing of worth to mankind. Even those that defend it are actually worried that it will lead to things of worth being deleted, like myspace um, books.

I will gladly sacrifice Limmy doing his 'joke' for the cause. Ban twitter.

That was one of many he posted, but I don't think it was one of the ones that 5-0 busted down the doors for.  The main one seemed to be a retweeted "comedy" song about transgender, but the court detail points to as many as 30 tweets and retweets that added up to a more eyebrow raising whole.

Doesn't seem that media outlets are keen on printing them in full.

He retweeted something that every outlet calls a "limerick" and it is driving me crazy. I don't even understand what the meter is supposed to be here:

You’re a man.

Your breasts are made of silicone

Your vagina goes nowhere

And we can tell the difference

Even when you are not there

Your hormones are synthetic

And lets just cross this bridge

What you have you stupid man

Is male privilege.

ABCDCEFAF is not a limerick.
