wicked college humour

found this on tumbler:

For a microcontroller project at college where we had lots of freedom I made an interactive robot.
I called it “female robot”.

It can read RFID, recognize if and how it’s moved and play sound/voice and you can vocally respond to it with numbers and yes/no.

To interact with it you need to wear an RFID tag that identifies you.
In it’‚ default setting the robot rolls around on the floor and says things like:
“I want to have fun tonight”
“Let’s get some drinks.”
“Wanna go to a bar?”
“Let’s go clubbing!”
etc.

If you start an interaction by moving in with an RFID tag there are several possible responses:
It it’s an RFID with a high attractiveness and monetary value the robot wants to be touched by you and carried around. There is lots of fun interaction. It can even demand to be thrown up in the air.

If you have an RFID with a low attractiveness value it demands you to stay away from it, if you don’t and keep interacting with the robot it gets more and more agitated until it starts shouting that it’s getting raped. (…)

RFID tags contain a money value as well. The more you interact, the faster it drains. If it reaches zero the robot too considers you no longer attractice and says things like: “Well, that was fun, but all good things come to an end.” or “You never buy me things and that’s why I will leave you.”

I am now suspended from college.

List of people bullied and badgered, pressured and purged for speaking their mind

Mind you, some dedicated assholes on that list, but still…
I’d prefer less censorship, even for dickheads.

“This book is red” – “Really?!?”

I just saw this on tumblr

In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view”

I do not know what this anecdote is supposed to illustrate. The children are still right: The book in question is not red. It is, at best, “partly red” or “has a red side”.

In other words: This teacher teaches sloppy thinking. The children were fully justified in contradicting him but he will have intimidated some from speaking out in future.
Way to go…

And now for something completely different…

How does Homeopathy work?

A Report on Women in Drugs from 1992

Choice Quote:

All the experts indignantly dismiss biological conjectures purporting to explain why males seem more violent than females. “Then why are the Nuzwangdees of Guyana — or is it the Wangduzees of New Guinea? Well, anyway, I heard there’s some tribe somewhere where more women than men are into GrecoRoman wrestling, or is it Australian football?” retorts Dr. Womyndaughter.
Media stereotypes victimize men as well. “Tragically, male dealers internalize the media’s image of them,” muses Dr. Spode. “The one man I talked to while preparing our report was hyper-masculine: aggressive, dominating, reckless, ruthless, muscular … and, yet, strangely intriguing.”

Facts Conveniently Withheld  — Medium.

Although this is posted anonymously I have very little trouble believing every word of it.

Are all feminists on tumblr stupid? 11 Examples of missing the point by a mile.

There is a list of pure stupidity here that only warrants inspection because I have a vague feeling that most common or garden feminists would see no contradictions in those points.
So we have to spell them out.

1. You have no problem with the gender wage gap. But you hate having to pay for dates.

There ist no gender wage gap. That’s why its unfair that pying is always up to only one gender.

2. You insist that it’s a scientifically proven fact that men are stronger than women. But you complain about society believing that it’s worse for a man to hit a woman than for a woman to hit a man.

I do believe that it is worse to be stabbed with a knife than getting even a strong slap, yes.
And I do believe that there is something a-kilter when society thinks a woman is free to hit a man as much as she likes while a man deserves harshest punishment if he hits a woman.
Which is the case.
How about: Hitting people is bad no matter which gender the perpetrator?

3. You believe that the age of consent is unfair and that there’s nothing wrong with having sex with teenage girls. But when you find out that a teenage girl enjoys sex, you believe she’s the biggest slut in the world.

Do I?

I thought I believed a girl is a slut when she sleeps around and the age doesn’t enter into it.

4. You hate when a woman automatically assumes that a man is a douchebag before getting to know him. But when you like a woman who likes another man, you assume he’s a douchebag just because he’s not you.

Do I?

No I don’t. I do occasionally think that a woman is interested in a douchebag, when – in fact – he is a douchebag.

5. You believe that if women want equality, they should be drafted into the military. But you also believe that the military is not a place for women.

No, I don’t.
I do believe instead, that women’s complaint to have the short of the stick in society is bollocks and the military killing (practically) only men is a good proof of the bollocksness.

6. You hate when women assume that men are like wild animals. But you believe that a woman who doesn’t cover up and make herself invisible to men is just like someone wearing a meat suit around wild animals.

No, I only hate it when women and most especially feminists are too stupid to know the difference between “some”, “very, very few” and “all”.
As in “Very few men have problems controlling their impulses, making them animal-like in that regard, and people (women too) should be aware of this.” versus “All men are animals”.
The latter is nothing but sexist drivel.

7. You hate the fact that men are bullied for not conforming to their male gender roles. But when you find out that a man disagrees with your beliefs about women’s rights, your immediate response is to try to emasculate him by comparing him to a woman as an insult.

Er… No and No.
I have never seen bullying in my school (despite me being an outsider myself at that time) but I do think that bullying is only part of a social dynamic that is too complicated to be reduced to a simple “I hate bullying”.
And I have never called another man a “pussy” or a “girl”. I have been called something along those lines, though, and didn’t have a problem with it.

8. You hate when women assume that there are no nice guys. But you call yourself a nice guy and act like it’s a rare quality that should cause women to be all over you.

Oh dear, oh dear. How stupid are you?

I hate it when a woman claims that All She Wants is a nice guy… but NOT one of all those nice guys that she knows.
I hate it when women tell insecure men that being nice is the way to getting involved with the girl when this is demonstrably as wrong as you can get.
See the difference?
Probably not.😦

9. You hate when women assume that men just want to get laid. But when you find out that a man is a feminist, you assume that he’s just doing it to get laid.

This is the one valid point. Assuming that a White Knight or a Pink Poodle has no motivation but getting laid is indeed stupid.

10. You hate when women make generalizations about all men. But when a woman calls you out for being sexist, you claim that all men think like you.

Do I?
No I don’t. And I have never heard anyone use this as an argument.
So what is he talking about?

11. You insist that women should be responsible for protecting themselves from being raped. But when they follow the one piece of advice that actually works, which is being aware of red flags, you complain about them assuming that all men are rapists.

No, I complain about them assuming that all men are rapist when they in fact assume that all men are rapists.
If on the other hand you define “being a man” as a red flag, you are full of … er … unprintable stuff.

My challenge: Does anyone know of a feminist page that actually tries to understand and then address MRM points? Instead of being as brain-dead as the straw men they raise?

Stories about relationships with partners who should be in therapy

erzaehlmirnix has a comic out today that shows how prejudices can turn into self-fulfilling prophecies.

This is quite obvious and true.

So why would I feel the need to comment?

Because her example is a borderline woman whose life is getting harder when people know about her borderline disorder.

This is undoubtably true. Any disorder sucks. Borderline is bound to suck big time. And it sucks even more when people treat you differently because they have some expectation as to what borderline means.
This is all understood.

On the other hand…

Go and read some stories of men who didn’t have prejudices against borderline and how their naive “love conquers all” attitude fucked their life up.

If you have to choose between the pre-judgment “I love this woman, she would never harm me.” and the pre-judgment “Borderline Disorder can become really dangerous. I should be on my guard when I have to do with her.” I would recommend the latter every time.
