Deaf people, do you prefer a video not made originally in sign language have subtitles or an interpreter, or something else? :boost_ok:

maybe i was just cranky but this was mediocre? like the stuff in this paper should not be groundbreaking. dropping from a queercrip theory text to this was thoroughly disappointing.. the depolitizication of stem is infuriating

don mee choi on translation 

Translation as an anti-neocolonial mode can create other words. I call mine mirror words. Mirror words are meant to compel disobedience, resistance. Mirror words defy neocolonial borders, blockades. Mirrors words flutter along borders and are often in flight across oceans, even galaxies. Mirror words are homesick. Mirror words are halo. Mirror words are orphaned words. Now look at your words in a mirror. Translate, translate! Did you? Do it again, do it!

reading abt environmentalism & disability in feminist queer crip and thinking about this poem, "curb cut cartography" by robin marceline:

nobody else could push me down that road. it had
to be navigated alone. wheeling hand on rim gave
me perfect control over the tiniest of movements
though i swear i nearly died a dozen times on that
hellish stretch the challenge was exhilarating until
one day suddenly the whole lot had been repaved

Hey, if anybody out there in the Fediverse is looking for a 2yr post-doctoral fellowship in philosophy or history of biology with my group in delightful francophone Belgium, drop me a DM or send me an e-mail! UCLouvain will be opening up a call over the summer, at which my center has been pretty successful in the past. Boost away if someone in your network might be interested! :BoostOkay:

Hey y'all. I was at work earlier so I made a quick post, but I'd like to take time to write a proper one.

An unhoused trans Black woman I have known for years here in Alabama is in desparate need of help. She is housed for tonight, but where she's staying costs $50 per night. Her CashApp is $inge73 and if you could help out, it would be so appreciated!

PLEASE BOOST!

A paper, named " A Deep Neural Network Model to Predict Criminality Using Image Processing", will be published in a Springer venue. You might find the title unsettling. Well, guess what, it is. Using data produced by the criminal system will not "predict crime", it will predict who the police arrests. Which are two really different things.

More details there:
