misgendering, selfie w EC
I mean this sure looks like a dude, right?
okay so. this recruiter found me on linkedin, where I have a very femmy picture of myself, she’s never met me in person, and in job-search contexts I use firstinitial middlename lastname because that seems more feminine. Everyone at the company I interviewed at was super respectful of my gender and pronouns. My references are also using the correct gender and pronouns for me.
So why the FUCK is the recruiter misgendering me?!
text classifiers, AI, spoofing
Researchers have demonstrated some attacks on machine processing of natural language meant to identify, e.g., hate speech: https://www.technologyreview.com/f/615158/software-that-swaps-out-words-can-now-fool-the-ai-behind-alexa-and-siri/
By switching words and phrases for synonyms, they create sentences that humans interpret similarly but machines interpret very differently.
This is the reason why automatic moderation is a non-starter, and one of the reasons why the fediverse is so much better than Fashbook and Twittler.
i think there's an important thing that needs to be said for #mastomonday
try not to take it personally if someone doesn't accept your follow request or want to follow you back, especially if your profile is very empty (no profile pic, no bio, empty except for twitter crossposts, etc...)
the general culture here tends to be different - folks want more personal interactions and aren't just hunting for a higher follower count - so please keep that in mind!
My gut let me sleep through the night at least. I’m still having some mild cramping this morning but hopefully it’ll clear up. I should have some ginger tea.
Okay I seem to be done with the worst of it; haven’t had an emission for like two hours. Still can’t sleep but at least it’s not because of gut pain.
I thought it had cleared up but then it came back ughhhhhhhh
Dear butt please let me sleep
At least it’s not just mucus now, seems to be some actual stool too so maybe whatever was left behind from the DPfH is finally on its way out
as a reminder here's my blog entry about the Death Poop from Hell https://beesbuzz.biz/blog/2547-Death-poop-from-hell
If you’re grossed out by the contents of this thread that is tagged with a CW of “poop talk” that’s entirely on you
At least it’s red blood which probably just indicates an unhappy hemorrhoid plus the usual mucus after effect from a major constipation event
Hopefully it clears up tonight. I think I’ll just have clear broth for dinner just to be safe.
ugh I've been farting out bloody mucus all afternoon
Last night I had another death poop from hell but I feel like there’s still a big chunk of poo lodged somewhere in my colon and so I feel gross and clogged up and didn’t even get the nice clarity I feel after a DPfH. An enema didn’t help either.
I need to get better at hydrating and taking stool softener regularly. Between the gabapentin and the adderall I have a bunch of things working against me here.
and I guess for a utensil holder I'll just hold off until I see something I like at a thrift store, because gosh all of the ones I can find for sale right now aren't any better than the one I already have
I mean it’s probably because the downtown one also tries to double as a grocery store while the Capitol Hill one is next to a QFC so they can carry more non-grocery things.
Still looking for a kitchen caddy. How is it the downtown bartells is so much bigger than the Capitol Hill one and yet has way less stuff?
Anyway I’m at Daiso where I belong. They had storage bins exactly like I was looking for and only $1.50 each. Also a comically tiny whisk. I have to assume Andrew Rea (Binging with Babish) is responsible, somehow.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
