We get so caught up in framing plurality as a weakness and a struggle...
Hey, #pluralgang, what about your plurality brings you joy or enhances your life?
i believe labels are pointlessly divisive and have no proper place in our society but i'm pretty much basically a jock and not a nerd at all
Bug bounty reports be like:
I've got arbitrary vibration execution on any cell phones if I know as little as a phone number

What if most voters in the world want to be subjected to authoritarianism, debasement, patriarchy and racism? Forget the politicians and the press for a moment—what if this is what most voters actually want?
How do the rest of us live inside of this reality?
The question to ask, if the answer is clearly not electoral politics, is what can we do to make the world a better place.

Loving all these people in my mentions telling me that a machine learning system which creates a face out of a voice isn't transphobic.
You can't intuit gender (or sex for that matter) from a voice. Full stop.
What is this hot garbage, #NeurIPS2019? "Facial Reconstruction from Voice using Generative Adversarial Networks" in which the authors generate faces from voice.
Computer scientists and machine learning people, please stop this awful transphobic shit.
Excited to see even more super racist/sexist AI next year! I bet the US govt will definitely fund the followup work! /s (wtf how was this *published*?!) #NeurIPS2019 @AnimaAnandkumar@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com https://twitter.com/varoonmathur/status/1205247456428134402
