Twitter is incorrectly guessing the gender of trans users — and they aren’t having it

TwitterFacebook

Transgender Twitter users aren’t here for the platform’s gendered assumptions. And they sure aren’t hesitating to make that known.

Here’s the deal: Twitter released a new set of tools on May 17 which allow users to see and control the data advertisers use to target ads on the social media platform. While the move was a clear effort to increase transparency and trust between users and the social media machine, the actual data Twitter has collected is giving many users pause. 

Notably, many trans and gender-nonconforming users are troubled that Twitter has been guessing the gender of users based on the gender most strongly associated with a user’s “profile and activity.”  Read more…

Do Not Watch These Two New Wonder Woman Clips, Because They Are Too Awesome

Given these tumultuous times, there’s a real comfort in knowing that WB/DC somehow managed to get a live-action Wonder Woman movie right while hilariously flubbing Batman and Superman. We should all be immensely looking forward to the film, which is why I very recommend you don’t watch these new, completely amazing…

The Details of JonBenét Ramsey’s Death Are Just as Chilling as They Were in 1996

The case of JonBenét Ramsey has sparked a renewed interest over the past year thanks to a handful of recent TV specials that have shed more light on her tragic death. Most recently, the Netflix feature-length documentary Casting JonBenét was released – it’s a hybrid of fiction and nonfiction that aims to figure out just why the legacy of this unsolved crime still captures the nation’s attention. The 6-year-old beauty queen was killed in December 1996, and while her attacker has never been found – suspects have ranged from her parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, her older brother Burke Ramsey, and schoolteacher John Mark Karr, who falsely confessed to the crime – the details of JonBenét’s murder are just as chilling as they were 21 years ago.

Make no mistake about it: JonBenét Ramsey was brutally murdered. The little girl was found wrapped in her white blanket with a nylon cord around her neck, her wrists tied above her head, and duct tape over her mouth. An autopsy of JonBenét’s body later revealed that she was struck in the head with a blunt object, which knocked her unconscious. Sometime between 45 minutes to two hours after she was knocked out, she was strangled to death with a garrote made from a piece of cord and the handle from a broken paintbrush. Patsy Ramsey alleged that JonBenét was not wearing the same clothing she went to bed in. The official cause of death was “asphyxia by strangulation associated with craniocerebral trauma,” and police later confirmed that she had also been sexually assaulted.

In December 2003, investigators retested a blood sample found on JonBenét’s underwear, which was revealed to belong to an unidentified male who was not related to the Ramsey family. In 2008, Burke, along with parents John and Patsy, were officially cleared in the case. To this day, investigators have not been able to identify who the DNA belongs to, and the case remains open.

Ever wonder why they didn’t fix Y2K sooner?

Flashback a few decades, to the days when this pilot fish is the new data center supervisor, and finally allowed to run second shift.

“It was Feb. 29th — I think it was 1964,” says fish. “One of the operators told me something strange was happening when he started to run the nightly production systems.”

The first step in the nightly production run includes entering the Julian date — that is, the day of the year, with Jan. 1 as day 1. Then the system responds with the current date in the normal month, day and year format.

But the operator tells fish that when he entered 60, instead of coming back with 2/29/64, it responded with 3/1/64.

Placentas are amazing organs, and we’re learning that they do so much more than simply manage the movement of nutrients and wastes between mother and fetus. In this month’s issue of The Scientist, placenta expert Christopher Coe explains its other roles, including hormonal regulation, iron storage, and immune system training.

Do people go to heaven after they die or do vermins in them go to clouds after they eat their hosts?

Question by earthbeashen: Do people go to heaven after they die or do vermins in them go to clouds after they eat their hosts?
Question is addressed to people and not religious monsters that eat people. E-mail me at [email protected]
Do we go to heaven after we die?
No, we don’t go to heaven after we die. The bacteria living in us while we are alive and that eat our body after we are dead lay eggs on the floor and use the wind to carry them to the clouds to live as viruses like they have done to us. These bacteria are from the sea since this place is piece of land that rose above the sea level.

We are possessed by tiny creatures that live in the soil and that are invisible to the eyes and worms that live in our intestines that use us as their shells like discarded shells abandoned by conch and that hermit crabs use. The creatures here on the planet can only mimic what they sea and they told us that vermins have used us to wage war for them against each other. They live in our intestines and contaminate us. That is why we are stock in this place. This place is not our place. We are living under the sea and everything is contaminated.
The vermins have turned us into their pods and monsters that eat our own kind and our own species. The animals, flesh and blood types, that are here are here to help this planet be free of vermins. But the vermins entered us and turned us against each other and instead of annihilating them, they use us to annihilate each other. They even made us believe that they are our dead. Our dead people, the air that leave them, are recycled by many insects and they are being held hostage, just like they hold us hostage. These animals are not our dead. If our dead could communicate with us, they would tell us that they are hostages just like we are hostages. The psychics, the mediums, and the palm readers are all possessed by sea insects and bugs and they only talk to each other and not to us people. Bugs communicate only with bugs. Since we are objects for them, they never address us. Flesh and blood, they eat, enslave, and kill, they as entities turned the planet into their own home using us to keep it going for them. That is why they claim to be eternal. People don’t have gods or goddesses. The tiny creatures of the sea that infect mankind have gods and goddesses.

Yes, we are decomposed by tiny creatures like bacteria and worms, but that doesn’t there is no heaven. Sure it sounds impossible and clearly doesn’t sound logical, but I at least can imagine a place where our spiritual energy can be put to rest, or in other people`s words, I release my soul.
