No Resuarant manager or gm has to tell women to dress slutty. Women are told everyday that being pretty will be rewarded-from strangers who tell us to smile pretty pretty to "friends" who call us sexy baby or pretty despite being told not to (WE KNOW YOU THINK YOU'RE IN THE FRIENDZONE, WE THOUGHT YOU WERE JUST A FRIEND, ASSHOLE). Strangers will aslo tell us to our faces we're fat, ugly, or they don't want to fuck us (i don't remember asking...) to our cooworkers who ignore or are mean to us to show they are not attracted (we notice you treating us different from the pretty girls, we don't want to fuck you so being mean to make the point is unneccessary). the world tells us that an ugly woman is never a reward. at the end of the night the sexist pig who flirts too much with his waitress is also going to tip her better if she has eyeliner than if not, he might not be mean either. just demeaning. its harm reduction.

When it comes to deep learning based classification of expressed homosexual preference, the algorithm in the study performed a binary classification on a roughly balanced set (50% seeking a heterosexual partner, 50% seeking a homosexual partner).

In reality, the lower base rate of those seeking a homosexual partner means that the false positive rate overwhelms accurate classification. It's good for determining average morphological differences between those of differing sexuality but not good at classifiying individuals.

The paper is here and worth reading or at least looking at the figures. The heatmap of difference on Page 18 of difference is pretty interesting, especially since it's asymmetrical.

Page 22 is an image depicting typical straight or gay faces. I think I'm a bit gayish in the forehead and super straight down below. Definitely more attracted to lesbians.

The features are consistent with the prenatal hormone theory, in which the probability of expressed homosexual preference is related to exposure to hormones especially testosterone in utero. For instance, if a man has 4/5 or more more elder brothers, he's about as likely to be gay as atypical man identified as being gay by this algorithm.
This is also likely due to prenatal testosterone exposure.

What I think is cool about this is you could make a Gayify app. Take a photo, and see what you'd look like if you were 50% gayer or 50% straighter.

They discus the impact on privacy rights in repressive regimes but argue that the research is useful in a couple of respects: the first being that it shows the limits of the technology. People pushing morphological feature based classification of individual sexuality will have to contend with evidence that it is not effective. It also provides people who wish to conceal their homosexuality with a list of characteristics that will be used[1], thus leveling the playing field. Granted it is trained entirely on white people who are the people in the world who have least to fear, thus the availability of data.

Unfortunately, repressive regimes have much easier and more effective behavioral classification.

[1]Consistent with the PHT, gay faces tended to be gender atypical. Average landmark locations revealed that gay men had narrower jaws and longer noses, while lesbians had larger jaws.Composite faces suggest that gay men had larger foreheads than heterosexual men, while lesbians had smaller foreheads than heterosexual women. The differences between the outlines of faces and facial features of gay and heterosexual individuals are further explored in Study The gender atypicality of gay faces extended beyond morphology. Gay men had less facial hair, suggesting differences in androgenic hair growth, grooming style, or both. They also had lighter skin, suggesting potential differences in grooming, sun exposure, and/or testosterone levels. Lesbians tended to useless eye makeup, had darker hair, and wore less revealing clothes (note the higher neckline), indicating less gender-typical grooming and style. Furthermore, although women tend to smile more in general (Halberstadt, Hayes, & Pike, 1988), lesbians smiled less than their heterosexual counterparts.Additionally, consistent with the association between baseball caps and masculinity in American culture (Skerski, 2011).
Male facial image brightness correlates 0.19 with the probability of being gay, as estimated by the DNN-based classifier. While the brightness of the facial image might be driven by many factors, previous research found that testosterone stimulates melanocyte structure and function leading to a darker skin.

Lesbians tended to wear baseball caps (see the shadow on their foreheads; this was also confirmed by a manual inspection of individual images).

Edit: Is this clear and useful? I tried to eliminate excessively technical language. I mess around with this kind of stuff but wouldn't do this specific research for ethical reasons. The ability to pick out one man with a very probability of having homosexual preferences would be dangerous enough for me to try to avoid it.

Will you feel vindicated or cheated if in It: Chapter 2 the adults reminisce about the orgy they had 27 years ago?

"Hey, remember when we were 10 and we all definitely had sex with Beverly? That definitely happened and was not all shameful, wasn't it?"

Chemda if you would like to understand the fury and frustration with Clinton, you should stop comparing her to Trump at every turn. I have massive disdain for both of them. One has nothing to do with the other. One is a bumbling moron who played this idiot country for what it is. The other is completely wooden and lacks a personality of any kind and noone could possibly believe she gives any shits for them listening to her speak and whos forced terrible trickle down and deregulation on this country already.

The one thing that could be said for him is that however horrible he is, we might actually arrive at real progressive change if(and hopefully when) the pendulum swings back the other way. She would've put everyone back to sleep. We'd be stuck with more neoliberalism where theyre ok with social liberties but the economic divide and massive failures in our education and healthcare systems would continue to get worse.

You said you watched the young turks once. You should continue to. I encourage everyone to do the same. Quit making the same dumb mistakes of the democratic establishment and deflecting every single horrifying problem with Clinton to the fact that Trump is a monster.


I love you.

Sorry I have to say this, but you can afford to wait for the change because you are not part of an oppressed group. If you are black, or a woman, or queer or poor or an immigrant it is not so easy.

You life might be ruined in 4 years, because you couldn't afford health insurance, because you landed in jail for something stupid, or got shot by a cop or because your rights were taken away and you lost your job because of your sexuality.
I would much rather be bored by my president.

I understand and I do criticize her. But she was not going to empower the kkk like they are now. She was not going to take LGBT rights away like he did. She was not calling Mexicans rapists.

This is being Reiterated by me because we should all be aware that that's what happened.

I trust her more than I do him and I don't trust her that much. Those became my choices and I don't like it.

Also, what Apia said.

I love you too.

Those aren't your choices anymore. Election is long gone. I voted for her. There really is no more need to compare them. Any defense of her is a defense of the terrible political system that brought us to that shitty election. We need to reject the politics that she represents at every turn.

But if it's over then why can people bring her up in a negative light?

If you say things that are bad about her that are legit I won't argue. It's just odd to me to bring up what a shitty competitor she was and then ask me to not talk about the election.

I know she's flawed. But I have a hard time with people making the comparison based on the election and/or Trump and then asking me not to.
