@Jo just tried this out and its either fixed, model specific, or too faint for either of the radios I have to pick up
book I’m reading,long quote
Reading SJ Langer’s “Theorizing transgender identity for clinical practice” and holy shit it’s amazing
“The understanding of gender and consciousness do not fit neatly into a physical or mental space. Both are qualitative subjective experiences and sinultaneously part of the natural physical realm. There is an evidential gap between our first-person subjective interospection and scientifically measured brain events. As opposed to a thing, consciousness is practically a process. It is an embodied physical phenomenon: simultaneously a physical property of the natural world and a subjectice mental apparatus. This is a rejection of both dualism and materialism. Consciousness is an "inner, first-person, qualitative phenomenon." This definition succinctly captures gender identity as well. The fact that consciousness does not fit neatly into a discrete category makes duelists nervous. We could say the same about gender. It is not a static entity; it is a dynamic process running throughout our beings. Gender does not only reside in certain areas of our bodies, brains, or minds; gender is everywhere and nowhere. It is both physical and mental. It is non-binary but comes in shades from multiple aspects of our bodies. These facts make people fearful, nervous, angry, homicidal (high rates of violence/harassment/abuse against trans people) and suicidal. The search for an etiology of trans experience in brain scans is not taking the full picture into account, that gender is more complex than a single neurological process or discrete brain area. Our brains react to a singular experience in different areas of the brain simultaneously”

Remeber back when Eugen refused to do this and then implemented authorized fetch because some big school wanted it?
@junebug I love how when the commentators asked Magnus about it he trolled them by making up theory
@maverynthia ok so to start with, North Korea is a democratic republic with 3 equal branches on paper too, so “democratic republic” and dictatorship aren’t mutually exclusive and if you’re going to say something about NK’s government not representing the people, I’ve got some bad news for you about the US and most other democratic governments. The chief executive trying to stop the legislature from certifying an vote in order to remain in office is unequivocally not trying to overthrow the government because if he’d gotten his way, all 3 branches of the government would still be functioning as they are with the same people running them (barring protest resignations and the congresspeople who were killed or kidnapped). Stopping Congress from certifying an election result also isn’t even in the same ballpark as overthrowing the government since the same thing could have been accomplished has the supreme court issued an injunction or ruled in Trump’s favor
Had that happened and a lawsuit succeeded in the court throwing out the results, would you be saying that the court overthrew the government? Because the only difference in outcome would have been a that fascists wouldn’t have stormed the capitol. We’d have the same people in the same positions operating under the same laws, only with a looming question of what happens on the 20th
Leaving the same people in the same positions of power with the same legal framework isn’t an overthrow no matter how hard you try to squint at it. To be an overthrow, something significant about who runs the show and how has to be changed
@maverynthia it’s not the definition because a coup is when the current government is overthrown and he’s still the
head of state. The head of state using violence to hold on to power isn’t a coup because the current government isn’t being overthrown. If he’d succeeded, the thing that would have changed was whether or not he got to be president for life.
It’s functionally the same as if he’d used state violence to arrest/kill dissenters in the government en masse or banned the Dem party. The fact that it was a mob of civilians storming the capitol doesn’t change that because if it’d been successful, the outcome would have been the same
If he’d lost in 2016 and he did this to install himself as president that would have been a coup since he wasn’t already running the government
So like, a coup has 2 parts right? You have 1) a group led by the people who aren’t the current head of state that 2) tries to overthrow the current head of state and install themselves into power.
The current head of state getting his supporters to disrupt a specific governmental action isn’t a coup
Fascists don’t do coups. They form alliances with traditional conservatives to get power through the normal political systems and then once they’re in power they consolidate and ditch their conservative allies and use state violence and paramilitary followers to go after their opponents
@maverynthia the fuck?

@mplouffe it’s not how I got my copy of it, but I found this https://archive.org/details/finale2003version2003.r2windows2002
Running it on win 10 has some compatibility issues and I save compulsively as I work with it as a workaround, but it works the same as it did when I was in college

@xenophora I take it this didn’t persuade you to vote Dem a couple years ago
Reading academic research about what makes music swing and some of the stuff is cringeworthy but there are some good observations in a couple studies too, like how laying back but staying in time or why it actually works when you even out 8ths when the feel is definitely swung
One of the neatest I found is how there ends up being a specific order of what beats are loose and what are always together that probably makes a bigger difference in whether something swings or not than anything else and explains why I’ve heard recordings of classical music that swing with even 8ths and everything
(Down beats are loose, back beats are tighter, offbeats are always together)
Don't say patriarchy when you mean transmisogyny
