tell me no women were on your design team without telling me no women were on your design team
one of the more upsetting revelations whilst so many of us are working from home was reading responses to Toobin's behavior

and seeing how many dudes on Ada Lovelace's internet think wanking at work is fine as long as no one catches you at it

why, why would you do this
women are not at a loss for places to receive unsolicited dick pics

WHY
two hours later and this is officially my most popular tweet ever

I have no soundcloud but y'all should definitely read @safiyanoble's _Algorithms of Oppression_ and think harder about how "neutral" tech facilitates white supremacy, sexism, & misogynoir

nyupress.org/9781479837243/…
people I will accept "to be fair"s from on this point: women; people of color; queers; disabled folks; otherwise minoritized humans always; and especially Black queer women who have been warning us about bias in tech for decades

dear Slack:

it's not the customized invitation messages we're worried about, so much as what happens if some rando decides to harass you once you've accepted the invitation

I am once again begging to to speak with a woman, any woman about this

you know what would prevent this feature from being abused

eliminating this feature
why, if you didn't *have* to be in the business of moderating unsolicited dick pics

would you attempt to *put* yourself in the business of moderating unsolicited dick pics

unless you're just *pretending* that you're going to moderate them until we stop being so hysterical
*you to, obvs
I muted this thread 18 hours ago because you know How Twitter Is, so I'm sure I'm missing replies

but I did catch this one and it's worth checking out

thanks, @tnewmstweet

confession: I definitely assigned #NUcults a new-to-me article on the demographics of Jonestown for today

and I *definitely* should have read it first

it's numbers, I thought

it's probably dry but this will help humanize the PT community, I thought
me on here everyday: it's impossible to present information neutrally

me doing syllabus design: it's just numbers, what could go wrong

me reading that piece yesterday: FUCKING YIKES
I miss being in the classroom so much for so many reasons

but holy crap, I really wish we could talk about this article in person, because this did NOT do the theoretical work I wanted to do re: humanizing residents of the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project screenshot

I'm like two years late on this but Always Be My Maybe was so freaking cute
also I now desperately need dumplings
In this month of TwelfthMarch, I'm so grateful for any new-to-me media that can actually hold my attention

and I feel like I need to rewatch this again, like, tomorrow

also I totally should have seen the ending coming but I didn't and I WEPT

it's a mistake to understand TST as trolls or as a church

they're fierce advocates for disestablishment and free exercise, and doing some of the most important and interesting religio-political work in the US rn

they deserve to be taken seriously
and #NUwitches talked about invented religions, including TST, at length last year

very this

I know I do a lot of yelling about accessible writing, and I stand by those shouts

but academic writing is experts talking to experts -- jargon there serves both as shibboleth and shorthand

it shows you've done the homework and know where you fit in the conversation
my students read some hardcore theory

(and @prof_gabriele is right: assuming they can't is dragging them, not us)

and I always explain that theory is a different language

it might *look* like english, but it absolutely is not

you learn that language by reading it
it's frustrating as fuck! it's exhausting and often feels impenetrable! but it's also specific and exacting in ways more accessible language just doesn't make room for
