Amazon's facial recognition creates dystopian future for trans and nonbinary people | Jezebel
Amazon's facial recognition tool Rekognition has some "blind spots" when it comes to gender identity, experts say. Os Keyes, a graduate student in human centered design and engineering at the UW, is quoted.

Revisiting Joyce Maynard's Memoirs, Relationship with Salinger
Rather than consider why Maynard chose to abide by a code of silence, they focused on how her decision to break that silence violated an age-old understanding: Great men, no matter what they’ve done, are a protected class.


At Home in the World is an incredible book. After reading it I was struck by the persistence of the idea that it was not Maynard’s story to tell. The book is about Maynard’s life, not Salinger’s. There’s nothing parasitical about it.

On the other hand, there is much that is parasitical about Salinger’s behavior. Out of loneliness and an obstinate refusal to build a life with anyone he couldn’t control, he sought after women who would submit to his authority because their entire experience of life up until then was that of being parented. What does an adult see in someone barely out of childhood? Someone who can be seduced and manipulated. He damaged a lot of young lives that way.


I also think the fact that men don’t get accused of oversharing should be examined. Men are lauded for their narcissism while women are shamed. Men can also be shamed for roles that women can comfortably hold. If people were permitted to be proud to be themselves and explore their full range of complex humanity without limitation, maybe they would be more balanced and their quirks wouldn’t turn into ingrown, toxic insecurities that negatively affect those around them.

The History Of Pink For Girls, Blue For Boys
"Ladies' Home Journal article in June 1918 said, "The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl." Other sources said blue was flattering for blonds, pink for brunettes; or blue was for blue-eyed babies, pink for brown-eyed babies, according to Paoletti.

In 1927, Time magazine printed a chart showing sex-appropriate colors for girls and boys according to leading U.S. stores. In Boston, Filene's told parents to dress boys in pink. So did Best & Co. in New York City, Halle's in Cleveland and Marshall Field in Chicago."
