THIS IS MY OPINION
Now that I see what Twitter did. Besides the stupid age year scrolling Twitter assumes all age input must comply with a law, North America and/or EU that automatic lock. All that protect the children stuff. If you had an DOB that is blank then setting DOB triggered legal requirement when stupid UI slipped at year.

1. How did I miss this?

2. Even my lack of language translation skill can manage via (OMG) Google translate. /snark

3. Amazon is my goto for more reasons than retail. That said, even the dot com and dot uk websites have weird problems - wait for the dot se comments to go /dev/null because several types of "product" are all in the comment section for the "product" page. (Offtopic: mostly applies to something like DVD/Blu-ray/4K/streaming products which may not apply to dot se site.

For the record: I don't like the "Harry Potter" movies and have never read the books.

Merchandise agreements are above my pay grade but the Self-ID is not. Women's sports are getting hammered from all directions:

1. Test women in the Olympics who win to often for testosterone.

2. If Self-ID males are just looking for equality then there is no equality in women's sports. There is a reason nature has XX = female and XY = male.

For me to say the social activism on transgender topics is unhinged will start a flame war -- is hurting XY wemon(sic) because of hurt feelings the solution to equality in woman's sports? That is not the right solution. The solution is no XY person is allowed to participate in XX person sports - invented gender ignored.

As for the entire trans community that need laws to marry, work, and live safely, I'm onboard. This crazy fandom activism is not helping, could be putting trans rights in jeopardy.

Thanks. Reckon I need to wrie(sic) a few words on why I agree. Gas a blog post chore.

I am not going on a rant. That said, I avoid getting into a message war on trans, woke, BLM, and Marx.
After reading Kidsleepy's essay I thought, wow, people have no idea of the puppet strings. Big money finance of "trained marxists" behind the veil are sending protesters out as disposable fodder. New Word: "Black, Inc." by @ Moe Factz.

Ugh. Toyota TV advertisements are the banner ads of Prime Time. Mute.

Updated to correct spelling on Sep 7, 2017.
I was not going to watch this but the voice in my head said, "There is absolutely no way ESPN/Dsney[sic] is going to create an |app| that allows live events in the market someone wants to watch". NBC sports live app is the benchmark that fox sports and ESPN x 4 channels can't match. All NFL, pro Baseball, pro Hockey and the list goes on has absolute control what gets on an app. Xfinity struck a deal where "In Home" & "on the Go" control what content goes to mobile, tablet, desktop and online. Sports is the most blacked out content -- "In home only" with some out of market games in "Go". i have been beating the stuffings out of these apps -- only 2 work as advertised; NBC mobile app and xfinity stream. Fox sports works most of the time but is worthless for auto racing live. ESPN app lasted 5 minutes on my mobile devices.
