To the not-quite shock and dismay of extremely online transfolks, Elon Fart has reinstated transphobe Graham Linehan’s Twitter account. And it ain’t pretty.
I regret to inform everyone that unfortunately it couldn’t be all trans wins today and the most divorced man on the internet (Glinner) has been unbanned from Twitter. Look forward to all his totally normal opinions!

Regardless of Musk’s motives, it’s not a very nice Christmas gift for the trans folks still spending most of our lives on the cursed app.
Linehan was banned back in 2020, after tweeting a series of transphobic comments that violated the app’s rules regarding hate speech. Quite clearly those rules have gone out the window since Musk took the helm.
Elon Musk really unbanned Glinner so people can’t call him the most divorced man on twitter anymore https://t.co/zwjBF6OEi5

It’s clear that Linehan will continue hurling abuse at trans women on the app while claiming that the trans movement took away his wife and children from him somehow.
Hi @Glinner welcome back.
Now you’re here, I’d love for you to explain your medical qualifications and clarify how Testosterone gave me Functional Neurological Disorder.

Graham Linehan being reinstated on Twitter is so depressing I don’t even feel like retweeting all my tweets from the last thirteen years about how awful he is.

Maybe just block him TBH.
The little dunks you can get on Glinner aren’t worth it for your trans friends mental health… just block him

Meanwhile, in the UK, “gender critical” activists are doing just fine and being extraordinarily mentally healthy.
