Having studied prestige in for many years, this 2017 article remains 🎯: "Prestige and reputation [are] dominant drivers rather than pursuance of quality and student achievement..." tl;dr: ranking games are a poison that universities should quit universityworldnews.com/post.p

I have no stake in Biden being a disaster. I have no reason to root for it. We need voting rights, debt cancellation, an actual pandemic response. We’re instead getting a landscape that will make it easier for the far right to install a dictator, be it Trump, DeSantis or whoever.

@redford@twitter.com @mspowahs@twitter.com (cw transphobia, homophobia, sexual assault, suicide) This heavily informed my thinking about trans-inclusive feminism, and really made me face up to the ways that performative "men are trash" jokes end up backfiring. medium.com/@jencoates/i-am-a-t

Not enough attention has been paid to how powerful dark money interests mobilized to pressure Manchin and Sinema to maintain the filibuster—and, in turn, to maintain the power of those wealthy special interests at the expense of voters.

i barely even tolerate steam. i don't want DRM, i don't want subscription software, i don't want microtransactions or DLC. i don't want to be tracked and quantified and turned into a public list of things that i own, an advertiser's wet dream. i don't know why you want this

Saw a post about how the jokes about “bi means attracted to all women and .000001 percent of men” or “ugh I want to date a girl but I’m stuck with my stinky gross boyfriend” are the tenderqueer versions of the boomer “I hate my wife” jokes: my discomfort has been validated

“intensive care unit bed use at 75% capacity is associated with an estimated additional 12,000 excess deaths 2 weeks later. As hospitals exceed 100% ICU bed capacity, 80,000 excess deaths would be expected 2 weeks later.”

i love being the reference queer in the friend group, by which i mean both that i am the go-to choice when someone needs to consult a queer and also that i will provide answers to your research questions

every time i see a transphobic tweet instead of engaging with it i report the tweet and the profile and then block them

so far, Twitter has adjudicated every one of these reports in my favor

just fyi in case you were looking for a way to act without engaging directly with TERFs

Become a better engineer by mastering the phrase "it depends"!

What's the best way to solve this sociotechnological problem? It depends!
Is facial recognition a good fit for this? It depends!

If you have a robust skincare routine you have demonstrated aptitude in many core skills of data science. I will not be taking criticism of this idea. Girls who have developed personalized skincare routines know more about multivariate causal inference than many engineers.

There is immense power in then trans experience of BECOMING that we bury when we insist on no model besides "I was always this gender," as if the lived phenomenon of transformation is incidental. It isn't.

So stop correcting ppl who frame their experience like that.

If you focus on being in actual queer community instead of obsessing over how other queers with no systemic power "erase" you, I promise you will get gayer and at least a little less annoying. I've found that usually fixes the problem!!
