William Perrin and 9 others 9:07 AM Sep 28, 2019 Twitter Web App assorted troublemakers @quatoria it's an amazing act of stage magic white supremacy has pulled, to transfer it's values and norms to "artificial intelligence" and then, because they successfully taught a computer to be racist (congrats i guess?) pretend that it is now neutral and objective and unassailable assorted troublemakers @quatoria like, teaching a facial recognition system to make judgements based on posting those same BS eugenics into a screed on livejournal in that the output of both procedures is identically unsound garbage - but one is called "objective" eugenicist BS is *exactly* like 7:57 PM Sep 30, 2019 Twitter Web Client assorted troublemakers @quatoria as though computers had some magical inherent property within them that transforms all of their output into reasonable, logical, defensible things, as if they magic black box that takes in input and were a produces Correct Results assorted troublemakers @quatoria you can get literally *any* desired output from systems like these, when designing them. it is laughable to pretend otherwise. 8:00 PM Sep 30, 2019 Twitter Web Client uncommonbish: Can we please get just one robot apocalypse movie where white supremacy is correctly identified as the catalyst for war?

apoorlywrittenfemalecharacter: theperksofbeingaperk: “…last year this photograph of children looking at their smartphones by Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam [went viral.] It was often accompanied by outraged, dispirited comments such as “a perfect metaphor for our age,” “the end of civilization” or “a sad picture of our society”. …It turns out that the Rijksmuseum has an app that, among other things, contains guided tours and further information about the works on display. As part of their visit to the museum, the children, who minutes earlier had admired the art and listened attentively to explanations by expert adults, had been instructed to complete an assignment by their school teachers, using, among other things, the museum’s excellent smartphone app…. The tragic thing is that this — the truth — will never go viral. So, I wonder, what is more likely to bring about the death of civilization, children using smartphones to learn about art or the willful ignorance of adults who are too quick to make assumptions?” José Picardo, Medium Read more #adults are fucking idiots#me included but i mean proper adults#like old adults : apoorlywrittenfemalecharacter: theperksofbeingaperk: “…last year this photograph of children looking at their smartphones by Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam [went viral.] It was often accompanied by outraged, dispirited comments such as “a perfect metaphor for our age,” “the end of civilization” or “a sad picture of our society”. …It turns out that the Rijksmuseum has an app that, among other things, contains guided tours and further information about the works on display.

So we just need to think of a way for women to not have faces and we’re all set 🤔 A clear example of how performance of femininity is both compulsory (enforced by social, legal, and economic consequences) and devalued because of misogyny. : The Telegraph @Telegraph Why wearing too much makeup harms a woman's leadership chances Why wearing too much makeup harms a woman's leadership chances telegraph.co.uk 3:01 pm 10 Mar 18 Previous studies have found women look less competent when they are not wearing makeup CREDIT: UNIVERSITY OF ABERTAY Dr Christopher Watkins of Abertay's Division of Psychology, said it was possible women wearing make up were seen as more frivolous in the workplace, even though previous work which suggests makeup makes women more dominant.

The council gave Sheeran a list of options for privacy “railings”, and after changing the proposal Sheeran was given permission that was more in line with the neighbourhood, which is in a conservation area.  A direct quote from Sheeran states: “Dear Natalie Edwards from The Sun newspaper.
