"Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Some of them are things people are scared of. Some of them are things that look like things people used to be scared of a long time ago. Sometimes monsters are things people should be scared of, but they aren’t."

— Neil Gaiman, from ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’ (via boulevards)

Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.

BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software

A lesbian of color black lesbian (who is married to a trans woman) becomes the model for an ultra advanced AI system.
This is huge.

So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???

this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….

This is very intriguing and huge in so many ways!!

This is a damn interesting project and an interesting demographics thing too.

I genuinely resent how ‘respecting parents’ often translates into allowing yourself to be an emotional (or even physical) punching bag, doormat or vessel for them to relentlessly project their idealized image of the perfect child, which often proves detrimental and inhibiting. Fuck that shit.

Petition to put Hawkeye’s disability and use of a hearing aid in Marvel Cinematic Universe please and thank-you

Can we throw some sign language in too? Like, he and Nat are deep in a mission and have to be quiet so they sign to each other what to do next.
