Mas eu não sou machista!

by Clara

A reação dos homens quando uma mina aponta machismo em alguma coisa que fizeram/disseram é quase sempre a mesma.

EEEEEUUU? EU NÃO SOU MACHISTA!

E exemplificam exaustivamente seus nobres atos de não-machismo, tipo “fui criado numa casa apenas com mulheres” (spoiler: isso não quer dizer nada), “acredito na liberdade sexual das mulheres” (como se isso não os beneficiasse, rs) ou qualquer outra coisa do tipo.

166

Pois bem, tenho uma novidade: não é porque você deixou de ser machista em algum momento que está imune pra sempre. O machismo é a norma, é o filtro com que a sociedade (ai, a sociedade) percebe nossos comportamentos. Por isso é “normal” um cara pegar todas, mas uma mulher que é dona de sua vida sexual vira vagabunda, ou, nas palavras daqueles que “não são machistas, mas”, estão emulando o pior do homem, como se nossas vontades estivessem atreladas ao que eles são. Isso é machismo também, viu? E ter atitudes e pensamentos machistas não significa que você é uma pessoa horrível que merece apanhar na rua, mas que você está reproduzindo o que nossa sociedade tem como norma e que está na hora de prestar atenção nisso pra não repetir. É um longo processo de desconstrução. Vai ser chato. Mas tem que acontecer.

Eu sou branca. Vivo prestando muita atenção pra não ter nenhum comportamento racista contra pessoa alguma. Mas tenho a consciência de que já tive. Porque racismo também é a norma e, diferente de quando se trata de machismo, o sistema me beneficia e estou em uma posição privilegiada. Ou seja: eu não sofro racismo. Não, gente, não existe racismo contra brancos, não existe racismo reverso, parem de se constranger com essa ideia.

Morro de vergonha? Morro de vergonha. Quero desaparecer quando penso que, há tempos, tirei onda do cabelo de uma mulher porque estava com raiva dela. Eu podia ter falado QUALQUER outra coisa, mas fui falar do cabelo crespo. Fui o que? Isso mesmo, racista. E é pensando nisso que eu consigo me policiar pra NUNCA MAIS reproduzir esse horror.

Seria fantástico se os homens que querem apoiar o feminismo, em vez de ficarem negando o machismo, nos escutassem, revissem e morressem de vergonha de seus comportamentos para, quem sabe, conseguirem começar a mudar alguma coisa. A primeira coisa a fazer pra resolver um problema é admitir que ele existe. Sei que é difícil, pois isso envolve abrir mão do bom e velho privilégio, mas boto fé que não seja impossível. Já vi muito homem ecoando discurso feminista dizendo “mas isso não é feminismo, isso é bom senso” ou coisa parecida. É feminismo sim, lindo, e se você não só concorda como defende já é um passinho a mais na caminhada da sua desconstrução.

E antes que alguém chegue falando “afff estão falando de macho de novo”: eu acho sim importante falar com os homens.  Mulher alguma é obrigada nem a conviver, nem a conversar, nem a aceitar, nem a explicar nada, mas eu, particularmente, não vejo como uma sociedade pode mudar sem incluir os homens no processo de mudança. Se o cara aprende, muda e para de infernizar a vida da irmã, da namorada, da vizinha, são as mulheres que vão se beneficiar disso. Nós.

Digamos que fosse possível empoderar todas as mulheres. Todas. Faríamos o que com os homens, caso eles não fizessem parte do processo de mudança? Isolamento? Prisão? Morte?

Tem muitos homens que eu admiro e não por seus posicionamentos em relação ao feminismo, e fico bem feliz quando vejo que estão abertos a escutar. Não quero ter que isolar os caras. Não quero ter que parar de falar com eles, parar de ler seus livros, escutar suas músicas, ignorar sua arte. Não quero. Quero que eles escutem e percebam que dizer “EU?! EU NÃO SOU MACHISTA” não ajuda em processo de mudança e não engana ninguém.

É claro que um cara que, ao ser confrontado, em vez de pensar “existem mulheres que discordam de mim, vou escutar” sai correndo em círculos de cuecas dizendo “feminazis histéricas não entenderam nada!!!” não está querendo conversar, e com esses eu não quero diálogo mesmo. Não existe diálogo mediante ofensa, né? Pra haver diálogo tem que todo mundo estar aberto a ouvir e, neste caso, admitir cagadas.

Estou sonhando alto? Talvez. Mas quero pensar que o que fazemos realmente surte algum efeito e que as próximas gerações não sofram tanto com isso quanto nós.

Check out this amazing wedding cake by the Little Cherry Cake Company mashing up the world of Super Mario and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

So this amazing bride and groom loved both Nightmare Before Christmas and Mario and didnt know which to choose. Why choose when you can have both!?! I love it when a couple just gives me free reign with design and lets me run with crazy ideas haha.

Mario and Peach as Jack and Sally, Oogie Boogie as Yoshi, Lock, Shock and Barrel as Shy Guys and some spooky Mario characters – Boo Ghosts, Dry Bones and dark Piranha plants.

The mario landscape even features spiral hill around the back and the brides favourite – Zero.

What 15 Minutes Of Playing For Honor Felt Like

I join the fray, sword in hand. I rush into the thick of battle. Amid the chaos I spot a serious threat. I wade through the carnage to him and we began to duel. Moments later, he is dead. Two more come to avenge him. I’m nervous. I know I won’t win. That’s when I realized it—For Honor has its hooks in me.

Google Computers ‘Dream’ Up Imagery

by JLister

googledream1

Google has published pictures produced by the closest thing to a computer dreaming.

The pictures come from Google’s attempts to refine image recognition. That remains a subject where computers lag far behind human beings, despite having the advantages of speed, accuracy and endurance.

The problem for computers is that their traditional approach of breaking a task down into the smallest possible components and crunching the numbers sequentially can’t compete with the human ability to intuitively and almost instantly recognize patterns and compare multiple possibilities: hence the way we can spot a friend in the street even if they have a new hairstyle or clothes we’ve never seen before.

Google, like several other organizations, has been experimenting with artificial neural networks. These try to simulate the way the brain uses a grid of neurons to create huge numbers of potential pathways and thus be able to run through multiple possibilities at once.

With images, it appears the brain solves the mystery by running through a series of steps. Google says one possibility is that the brain starts out with edges and corners to get an overall shape (which could perhaps be called jigsaw logic) , then looks for familiar shapes and patterns within the picture to get more context, then finally drills down to the fine detail.

Google has now experimented with reversing the process to look for flaws in the way its artificial neuron network detects image components. It did so by feeding in images and asking it to highlight possible examples of a particular component, then feeding that image back in to get even more exaggerated highlighting, and so on in a loop.

It turned out that with the right programming, the network could “spot” almost any pattern in an unconnected image, similar to the way people look for patterns in clouds:

googledream2

In some cases the process highlighted problems with the set-up. For example, asked to spot patterns of dumbbells, the network did so, but every resulting “dumbbell” shape also included a hand and bicep holding it. That turned out to be because Google’s network of images matching the description “dumbbell” was dominated by pictures of people using them in workouts.

The team also tried out having the network create images starting with a picture made up of entirely random noise, similar to an analog TV picture with no station tuned in. The resulting images [pictured top] were effectively created solely by the network interpreting randomness by shaping it to match the subjects that were “on its mind”, similar to one theory about how dreaming works.
