Being aro/ace means having a really easy time countering almost every "human nature" argument in existence

*does nothing against "x is not human nature" arguments*

Siblings who switch from hating, undermining, and fighting each other to showing solidarity in an alliance against their parents are practicing exactly the kind of skills and thought processes that will be necessary if society is going to move in a decent direction

I think it's horrifying that our society crushes so many children to the point where they stop dreaming of space and end up only dreaming of slightly higher social status

Seeking out and analyzing edge cases is the fastest way to learn about or improve something, whether it's politics, software, or almost anything else. I think so many things would be better if there was a cultural expectation to do so

love it when my family members tell me math is terrible and a waste of time. Thanks for being so supportive.

@revenant headline in image: "Airbnb Is Partnering with 23andMe, so Let Your DNA Plan Your Next Trip"

A while back Air Mexico did a PR stunt where they got a bunch of Texan white people tested and when, surprise, some of them had markers for meso-american ancestors, offered them free air-fair to Mexico.

I'll bet this is similar.

@revenant other than just 'racism' what is even the technique/theory under here. Like, are they going to see a predisposition to diabetes and recommend areas that have low sugar diets or something?

I mean 23andme is so dumb they can't tell when people send them cat dna and they'll give different results to identical twins, so it's not like it matters, but what the fuck

@revenant oof, as if every european country doesn't have enough americans going "you know I'm 12% <country>!"

finally an Algorithm that's going to be even more racist than all the other existing ones

a take most people have already heard, racism
