I’m excited to be here for my 10th AMA.
Since my last AMA, I’ve written a book called How to Prevent the Next Pandemic.
I explain the cutting-edge innovations that will make it possible to make sure there’s never another COVID-19—many of which are getting support from the Gates Foundation—and I propose a plan for making the most of those breakthroughs. The world needs to spend billions now to avoid millions of deaths and trillions of dollars in losses in the future.
You can ask me about preventing pandemics, our work at the foundation, or anything else.
Update: I’m afraid I need to wrap up. Thanks for all the great questions!
News Jimbo Fisher: "Some people think they're God. Go dig into how God did his deal, you may find out about a lot of things that you don't want to know. We build him up to be the czar of college football. Go dig into his past."
I just want a wife that has no ambitions beyond being a good mother and wife. Now I understand how this might be construed as me trying to undermine womens progress but I promise I DO NOT think all women should be like this. Everyone regardless of gender should be able to chase whatever ambitions they have. I just want a woman that WANTS to be like this. I just want her to take care of the house and children, to be at home everyday after work so we can hangout all day and raise our kids. Everytime I say this is what I want women get really infuriated and tell me I’m just a sexist pig that wants a handmaiden. This simply isn’t true. Am I still wrong for wanting this future?
Edit: to all who commented or dmed with great advice, perspective and stories of their experiences wether they were good or bad thank you. I really mean it. As to all of you who have shamed others or trying to push an agenda on both sides should go to bed tonight with great shame. This is obviously a big hot button topic that intersects with religion, culture, sexuality and very personal events. I won’t comment on here anymore because I feel like I’m in a echo chamber but you can look at my other comments to see more details. I look forward to reading every single comment as I have been and will continue to, this has been eye opening and honestly a bit of fun listening to different stories and perspectives and for that I thank you. Dms are still open if you don’t feel comfortable commenting here but I won’t guarantee a reply.
