"The unit is engaged in the same kind of AI work that the world’s biggest tech companies, like Google, Facebook and China’s Baidu are doing in a race to apply machine learning to such functions as self-driving cars, analysis of salespeople’s telephone pitches and cybersecurity — or to fight Israel’s next war more intelligently."

“I’ve always loved algorithms. I was already involved with them in high school and worked in the field. When I [was] drafted I wanted to combine the technology with a combat,” Maj. Sefi Cohen, 34, recalls.

The unit’s only female member left recently. so for the moment it’s an all-male team. Cohen says: “Everyone who’s here is the tops.”

"His most recent book (2010), Healing Civilization: Bringing Personal Transformation into the Societal Realm through Education and the Integration of the Intra-Psychic Family, is both a continuation of and a turning point in Naranjo's lifelong work. In this book, with a foreword by Jean Houston, Naranjo explored what he saw as the root cause of the destruction of human civilization (as evidenced in the 2000s (decade) as war, violence, oppression of women, child abuse, environmental endangerment, etc.) — #patriarchy — and brought both the problem and the solution home to an intra-psychic level. Patriarchy, he said, has taken root over millennia in the workings of our own conditioned minds. He also offered a remedy, which derives from the work of Tótila Albert regarding the "triune" being of our nature: the "Inner Father" (corresponding to the head), the "Inner Mother" (corresponding to the heart), and the "Inner Child" (corresponding to the instincts). As people learn to integrate these three "brains", Naranjo believed, they may bring about a functional, even divine, family within. And this, he believed, in addition to transforming education oriented to personal and collective evolution, could bring about the healing of civilization."

"Even after brothels were banned in metropolitan France in 1946, French military authorities illegally brought hundreds of Moroccan women to France to work in ‘Bordels militaires de campagne’ because of the Moroccan soldiers still present in the metropole. With poor living conditions, underage labour and a high workload, French military brothels exploited Moroccan women to theoretically ‘protect’ European women against sexual violence from Moroccan men."

Tomorrow is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This week, in Italy, the corpse of a 22-years-old woman, Giulia Cecchettin, likely murdered by her ex-boyfriend, after a video showed him violently assaulting and forcing her (still alive) in the car.
Giulia's sister, to headlines describing the him as a monster, answered: 'He's not a monster. He's a healthy son of the #patriarchy'.

A married woman’s residential status should not be viewed through a patriarchal prism, says Madras HC

Though a married woman ordinarily lives at her husband’s place, she cannot be presumed to have disowned her residential rights at her parents’ house on account of her marriage. The rules of marriage do not impose any such condition on a woman, and therefore, she can gain public employment by claiming to be a resident of her native village, the Madras High Court has said.

I recently played a game of Valorant where someone said I sounded hot. It was a few rounds in, not right away; it wasn't like I had just loaded in and someone was already thinking about my body. I wasn't put off by it, in fact I actually liked it. I smiled and said thanks.

Yesterday, I watched a Youtube video called something like "The Female Experience in Valorant Uncensored", which is a compilation of uncensored sexist and objectifying remarks a female Valorant player got in, like, a few weeks or months (I don't know the exact time frame, but when it was uploaded she was making videos like this every few months). It made me realize that unsolicited comments like that are (when directed at women) a form of patriarchal dominance. It's an expression of the way the patriarchy reduces women to simple sex objects which it's acceptable for anyone, even strangers, to desire. Even if I was into it, the average person wouldn't be, especially if they get catcalled regularly. Because I don't get catcalled, I didn't realize this, and ended up encouraging those "you sound hot" comments. That teammate of mine probably thinks it's okay to tell people they sound hot unprompted, in part because of me.

This is why, to be a good feminist as a non-woman, you have to actively listen to women. There are things that they understand that you don't because your lived experiences are so different. Unless you listen to those experiences, you risk encouraging misogynist behavior without realizing it. Sure, it's (to you, hopefully) common sense that catcalling women is bad, but if that's the extent of your knowledge, you won't see the ways you might be part of the problem. You can't "common sense" your way to good allyship.

And I do think that what we need, as a society, more than anything, is new values. Our current conceptions of bravery, strength, assertiveness, charisma, or confidence are what got us here just as much as #capitalism, #WhiteSupremacy, #patriarchy, #queerphobia and #ableism did. We're stuck in a world that's still holding up those old values and we're forced to judge ourselves by them, even as we try to cultivate new values, values that will help us survive in a world of #Ecocide, #pandemics, and #fascism.

I'm trying to remember that, to judge myself by these new values rather than the old ones. I'm trying to remember that if someone is judging me by those old values, they're not someone who's worthy of my time or attention. They're not someone who's going to make it in the #apocalypse.

Another quickly drawn #webcomic page idea. I could have drawn SO many more examples of what is considered a "newed" woman, all you need is so much as a centimeter of areeola showing, and suddenly it's "sheekshually expleesheet newdeetay", while the ONLY thing a MALE presenting person has to cover to be considered "clothed" is their actual jeanitalia. It's just the most blatant #sexism #misogyny #genderDiscrimination etc and it drives me nuts that so few people question or speak out about this.

Under the "clothed" title:

Under the "naked" title:
A plethora of female-presenting people wearing everything from a g-string to long, baggy pants and a turtleneck with just a small "boob window" with a tiny bit of areola showing above the lover hem. In the middle of a group stands a male-presenting person, with nipples and penis/balls fully on display.

so if you'd like to help me try to convince new people (and someday far in the future, the platforms themselves) that enforcing different levels of censorship based on "what gender you look like" is absurd and blatantly sexist,

please consider widely sharing, reblogging, and posting your own reply content (or just shouting out my channel) to my own posts, to help me get out of the shadowban-void I'm constantly fighting against (when my content isn't banned outright, as happens almost daily)

#youtube posted this ominous warning at the top of my studio: "Under our existing external links policy, violative URLs posted within the video itself or in the video's metadata (titles, descriptions, and tags) may result in the video being removed."

If you click "learn more," it takes you to their "external links policy," which is laughably vague, just like their in-general #communityGuidelines #violation page. You can read it yourself here: Note how they repeatedly say "this is not an exhaustive list," and there's no mention of nudity, only "pornography"--meaning it's up to that particular algorithm's programming bias what counts as "prawn" or not (to say nothing of the insanely blatant #misogynist and #sexist viewpoint within the #patriarchy that "female-looking nipples are 'nudity' but male nipples aren't" 🙃)

The absolutely wildest thing is, if youtube would just give me half the effin leeway that they do these many other accounts that post FULL BODY, FULLY UNCENSORED nudity, I wouldn't need to direct people anywhere else to see the "patriarchy-unapproved" version of my videos. Honestly, this is pretty crazy...I learned long ago not to post any kind of clickable link anywhere in a youtube description or comment (after getting #strikes for linking to my own website, and a twitter post of mine, and a tumblr post, and a link to a discord server intended to serve as a resource guide and community for intersex people...) but getting these threats that even just having the url to my site on my page can get a video banned.

If you're a #contentCreator or #influencer who only posts your content to Youtube, I highly encourage you to start packing now, and get your feet into some less-faschy alternative platforms--#Peertube is a great place to start (you can comment if you want me to try to direct you towards more specific resources). Because if you "keep all your eggs in one basket," you're going to end up with egg all over your face (and none left to survive off of) once capitalism kicks that basket out of your hands.

No fault divorce, anti-child marriage laws
Reproductive healthcare, autonomy & birth control
Workplace equity protections, wage reform
LGBTQI+ equality

Liberation demands escaping these traps.

So of course the Right is going to do what it can to protect those traps and stop white women from avoiding them.

(While WOC also exist under it, Patriarchy doesn't give a fig about WOC. We aren't the subjects that *matter.* Rather, we are lab rats so the control can really be refined.)

There is no protection under Patriarchy. Everything is control.

"Heard of a cool tech-bro-weeding interview technique the other day. A male and female engineer conduct the interview session together. If, when the female engineer asks the candidate a question, he directs his answer to the male engineer, then he's out. They said it happens a lot"

#SA #patriarchy #capitalism #violence #UK

channel 4 (UK) just released a documentary about comedian/youtube-conspiracy-peddler russell brand's history of sexual violence.

i'm watching it now and it's a "jimmy savile situation" all over again. they even have a clip of him talking to jimmy saville about sending over naked women.

something i always forget about this kind of long-running exploitation is just how many people it takes to facilitate 1 man's violence against countless people. sadly, this show is reminding me. and of course, a lot of those facilitators were women who were working in tv production & didn't want to lose their jobs. i doubt they were "bad people", but the entire machinery of capitalist patriarchy put people into these roles where they're facilitating injustices that they would never want to do themselves. it makes everyone a perpetrator.

anyway, if you're outside the UK, you can watch it here:

“A young woman walks down a street in Tehran, her hair uncovered, her jeans ripped, a bit of midriff exposed to the hot Iranian sun. An unmarried couple walk hand in hand. A woman holds her head high when asked by Iran's once-feared morality police to put a hijab on, and tells them: ‘Screw you!’”

Zimmer asks when precisely that golden era of free speech for which centrists hanker for us to return was in place. He answers:

"Unless we are talking about wealthy white Christian men only, it makes little sense to construct a version of U.S. history in which previous eras were characterized by greater freedom while the very recent past has been marked by a loss of free speech."

"The frequently invoked 'consensus' of the post-World War II era, for instance, was depending on both major parties agreeing that white patriarchal rule would remain largely untouched. …

"It wasn’t a coincidence that 'polarization' started when one party broke with the white elite consensus and supported – albeit reluctantly – the civil rights revolution of the 1960s."

i'm all about questioning categories such as "weak" & "strong." 👍​

@jensorensen great idea. It's the best way to get attention to anything and declare it worthy of time & money 🙄🙂 #patriarchy sucks.

It has been brought to my attention by a number of you that comparing the penis brains at the Spanish Football Federation to Neanderthals is patently unfair to Neanderthals.

I just wanted to state for the record that I agree wholeheartedly and apologise profusely for any offense caused to actual Neanderthals who, I’m sure, would have been appalled by the behaviour of the knuckle-draggers at the Spanish Football Federation.
