"If it bleeds it leads. "

Reminds me of something I've noticed, in the US cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke accounts for at least 443,000 premature deaths annually. Second-hand smoke causes 38,000 deaths per year.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_effects_of_tobacco (cause I don't have much time)

Murders in the US are about 17k see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate

..and what somehow I see a lot more in the news about some random murder or violence case and sometimes not even that (like Covington and Jussie Smolet) and anti-vaxers then information on tobacco.

No I'm telling you it's something people do because the danger has been removed.

That's what happens in the movie, Dorothy kills the witch. There has been a long long time since it was illegal to be gay, and the people that actually had to deal with that law are generally not the ones on the parade. So they certainly not celebrating the danger is gone for the majority of people who do parades didn't have that danger upon them.

I think this explains it:

If that were the case they wouldn't put it on display because of the lingering fear of getting murdered.

Digital assistants like Siri and Alexa entrench gender biases, says UN by Snow in technology

[–]dark_devil_dd 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Assigning female genders to digital assistants such as Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa is helping entrench harmful gender biases, according to a UN agency.

...and

“Because the speech of most voice assistants is female, it sends a signal that women are obliging, docile and eager-to-please helpers, available at the touch of a button or with a blunt voice command like ‘hey’ or ‘OK’,” the report said.

being nice and helpful isn't "harmful", in fact, when I meet someone needing directions or having issues I try to be nice and helpful.

This seems like the usual Gender Studies mambo jambo since it doesn't indicate how exactly and quantitatively it impacts people, it just goes on a wild eageration spiral.

...also:

“This harassment is not, it bears noting, uncommon. A writer for Microsoft’s Cortana assistant said that ‘a good chunk of the volume of early-on enquiries’ probe the assistant’s sex life.”

I don't tell my Cortana to go fuck herself, I just often google how to kill her because I hate the stupid apps and settings microsoft forces upon my laptop that slows it to a crawl and when I finally I manage to remove/disable a bunch of them an update (that I can no longer block) comes along and reenables a bunch of them.

It cited research by a firm that develops digital assistants that suggested at least 5% of interactions were “unambiguously sexually explicit” and noted the company’s belief that the actual number was likely to be “much higher due to difficulties detecting sexually suggestive speech”.

it's not so much that people don't bother researching, it's about transparency.

It's they just take a convenient small piece of information that fits a narrative and leave out the rest even if it significantly contradicts the point they were trying to make.

Thnks 4 the good work bro. This might yet become something really good (until it goes full business mode like it seems to happen to all good companies)

This seems a little too much

yes, I've heard about "public diplomacy".

That has occurred to me, not just the case of Israel, even considered posting it on s/conspiracy . How often people are pushed to a side because how insane some people on the other appear to be?

Makes me wonder if some people views are legit or an underhanded campaign of people impersonating the opposing side to drive people away.

Now though, we see it coming from both "right" and "left" (as in the Women's March scandal).

I had to google it, found this:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/23/us/womens-march-anti-semitism.html

https://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/276694/is-the-womens-march-melting-down

So it doesn't really surprise me , the whole stuff is full of cringe. Some movements are about "inclusion" they're about reductionism, they're based on self-centered impulses that center around a part of someone's identity, their tendency seems to be to repeat the process and move towards narrower and narrower aspects about identity.

It's the logic of:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I agree, although there seems like a disproportionate content comes from there, and I never said to ban it, just that you can unsubscribe to it so that certain content won't appear on the front page.

I love a good conspiracy theory but it seems like there's a lot of quantity over quality.

Not saying it can't be discussed, just that's weird that, in some cases, people will link an unrelated event in a college in the US to Israel. It's like a spontaneous rorschach test on steroids.

I think that if u unsubscribe to s/conspiracy it should do the trick. Not saying I agree with what they say, but if you're reading a sub called s/conspiracy you should expect crazy shit.

I wouldn't say anti-semitic necessarily but recently someone called me brainwashed and asked if I was from Israel. Let me make this clear, what we were talking about HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ISRAEL, not even close.

Any explanation as for that variance? is vegetation denser and darker to the south?
