Elon Musk Lays Off LGBTQ Employees At Tesla
During Pride Month?!?!!?

During Pride Month!

During Pride Month!!!

It's as if Elon Musk believes that normal business operations continue during Pride Month!

He's history's greatest monster!


Tesla has laid off both the President of its LGBTQ+ community and a lead involved in diversity and inclusivity programs at the company.

While they were let go as part of a broader wave of layoffs, it comes amid several comments Tesla CEO Elon Musk made, concerning what he describes as the "woke mind virus."

Earlier this month, we reported on Musk telling Tesla executives in an email that they need to cut 10% of the workforce and pause hiring due to having a "super bad feeling" about the economy.

...


Now we learn that many employees involved in diversity and inclusivity programs were part of the layoffs, including the President of Tesla's LGBTQ+ community and a lead involved in diversity and inclusivity programs at the company.

According to sources familiar with the matter, Bobby Berretta-Paris was let go last week. Berretta-Paris was a 5-year veteran at Tesla. He was hired as a recruiter and promoted 3 times over his 5-year tenure at Tesla. He was also the volunteer President of LGBTQ+ at Tesla.

Sources also told Electrek that a software engineer who had been working at Tesla for four years during which she was promoted three times -- most recently as senior software engineer in charge of naming conventions in Tesla's vehicle UI team. (Update: we removed her name.)

The engineer also happened to volunteer as a Diversity and Inclusion Leader and was involved in employee protection when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion.

Last week, Musk fired employees who circulated an open letter which other employees were asked to sign, demanding that he stop tweeting because his tweets made them uncomfortable. He fired them because Tesla is a workplace, not an activist rallypoint, and because the employees involved might have been making other employees feel uncomfortable at work by involving them in their crusades.

On the other side of the professionalism and dedication to mission spectrum (so to speak), there's the US Navy, unfortunately:

They want us to think Elon is rounding up they gays but seems to me if you are going for a 10% reduction everyone gets slagged some. Do they think that gays cannot be eliminated at all? Of course that is what they think.

If they are cutting staff then reducing recruiters seems like top of funnel thinking. And chances are all the stuff inside is named already.

Nuke subs can already go ~20 years without refueling. Not sure how they are going to stretch that out to 50 years. Fuel rods in Navy nuclear propulsion are already enriched to 93%, you can't shove in any more radioactive stuff in them. Barring some absolutely brand new reactor technology, they aren't gonna get 50 years continuous service out of a Nuke power plant as technology currently stands.

Columbia class subs are designed to run their entire 50-year designed life without refueling.

Serious answer: Personnel costs. The kind of talent that can keep reactors working properly is scarce, and needs lots of training, coupled with more money to incentivize them.
Add engineering costs to get the reliability of ancillary equipment you need.

Plus, with gas turbines, you get responsiveness at a lot less money. And Aviation fuel is always needed for fixed wing aircraft, drones, and helos. So for subs it is OK, not surface ships.

The full rainbow flag now includes a circle for hermaphrodites plus diagonal stripes for trannies, blacks, Hispanics, and Ukranians. It's honestly hilarious, because what's happening is all the new Current Things are literally covering up the original gay/lesbian rainbow.

It's time for mostly peaceful protests at the State Department for promoting this hateful old rainbow flag on a worldwide basis.

We need to show God's love to others. That means, among other things, giving the Gospel and teaching God's Word.

It doesn't mean surrendering our pulpits to anti-christian activists. And everyone who supports homosexuality, abortion, and/or the induced gender dysphoria of children falls in that category.

It's not our job to change them---we believe the Holy Spirit will work on those who are chosen---but we must give them the undiluted truth. Both barrels.

For example: Romans 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 8:1, 10:13...

We must not hate them; but we don't need to roll around in their filth, either.

353 That Navy pronoun video wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The one serious disagreement I have is that the pronouns that are in question are third person. When I talk with a gender confused person, I would use "you" when talking to them and I would expect them to use "I" when they refer to themselves. When he or she is not there to participate in the conversation, I ought to use whatever pronoun that makes it clear I'm referring to that person, short of using his or her name. Then it is about me and my rights. I'm not going to refer to someone as "they" since I'm referring to an individual, and I'm not going to lie and call Bill "Lia" Thompson or whatever that swimmer's name is, a "she" when that person is so obviously a "he". I just realized I spent way too much time on this. But since I spent the time, I might as well post it.

369 Any public company that has an LGBTQ department should be sued for waste of shareholder value. They contribute absolutely nothing to the profitability of the company.

375 There's no reason to ever put men on Mars. It's a dead rock, that's all. If there is something useful that can be done there, it can all be done by AI, which eliminates any need to worry about oxygen, food, etc.

IIRC, the fantasy has always been that Mars would serve as a stepping stone for future colonization of the galaxy. We're so far away from that notion that it seems irrelevant. Hell, there's a raging debate here on Earf on basic biology - male versus female. We are regressing as a species. Better fix some shit here first, or advanced space exploration remains a pipe dream.

377 346 Elon Musk has a trans daughter that now wants to change her last name. In the past he has stated he supports The Trans.
Posted by: Maj. Healey


That's interesting. Is she turning down any money from the evil hater? Is she giving back any assets he's already given her?

379 What is a pronoun?

It's a harmless filler word that we've all agreed to use because NOBODY CAN FUCKING REMEMBER THE SPECIFIC NAME OF EVERYONE THEY FUCKING MEET!!!!

Sorry.

380 Being “promoted” three times in four years, or in five years, is a joke

381 I checked and saw that Paul Lynde, Charles Nelson Reilly, Alan Seus, Liberace, Richard Deacon, and Roger C. Carmel did not expire during Pride Month. It must offer some protection.

382 Elon come unfortunately, has an 18-year-old son who now says he is a girl and he’s also changing his name from musk to his mom’s maiden name. Someone worked hard on this kid to mess his head up.

Ice asteroids to land in the Sahara would be neat. We need to get out to Jupiter or even the Oort Cloud for that.

We choose to go to Mars, and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because we are hard.
