Update Notes: (1) fifthtrinity at Dreamwidth now exists; I've ported the entries here over to there, and I'll be updating there, (by which I mean here) not here (by which I mean over there at LJ), in the future.
(2) I'm restarting the process of getting legal recognition for Fifth Trinity Church. Have decided to do this the hard way - with a legal incorporation - instead of the minimal way, which is "when you declare you have a chuch, *poof* you have a church, until someone challenges your tax status and then you might have to play paperwork games." I'm getting the paperwork games out of the way up front.
Continued at link.

Because when you're giving orders to an automaton that has no choice but to follow them to the best of its ability, it should code as female, right? Wouldn't want people thinking a baritone-voice Brooklyn accent would carry out your commands all day. Wouldn't want people giving commands to what sounds like a man who works as a California newscaster--myghods, they might get into the habit of giving orders to anyone who sounds like that!

Source: The Wage Gap, by Gender and Race
Find median annual earnings of black men and women, Hispanic* men and women, and white women as a percentage of white men's median annual earnings
White men: 1.00
Black men: 0.751
Hispanic men: 0.672
White women: 0.78
Black women: 0.64
Hispanic women: 0.54
*Their word, not mine.
Median annual earnings of white men and women, black men and women, and Hispanic men as a percentage of Hispanic women's median annual earnings:
Hispanic women: 1.00
Black women: 1.185
White women: 1.444
Hispanic men: 1.244
Black men: 1.391
White men: 1.852
The proper phrasing isn't "Latina women make just over half what white men make." It's "White men get paid almost double what Latina women get paid." Followed by, "What are they doing for your company that's worth 185% of the money you'd pay a Latina woman for the same job? Are your shareholders aware that you're paying white men more than you pay other demographics of employees--are they happy that you're wasting money like this? Especially considering that they're over-represented in the high-income tiers?"

(And continue the walking, 10 miles/week.)

So I had choices. I could stop wasting time walking as it isn't doing squat for the body goals I have. I could lower my expectations. Or I could change what I was doing. The first one (though enticing) would eliminate what is making me feel better, plus it is summer and walking in the park is lovely. The second choice, while perhaps reasonable and a nice trick for my brain, will only sap away motivation as things remain the same. So I opted for the last choice. So this week instead of 6 miles I walked 10 miles.
We shall see.

His viewpoint is not only very Euro-centric in his definitions of beauty and why we should stop saying everyone is so, but there is an extra dose of USA centricity in there just for fun. He uses the word "world" in reference to why we should not find beauty in everyone when he only means USA based* on his examples. You know, like World Series, except it is not. And then he tells us we should just chuck our fight against it**, give in, accept that Madison Ave and the USA culture has won, we've lost, and pick some other phrase from a set he's deemed way more better. Thanks, maaaaaan. So happy to find you know what's best for the world based on your privileged US-centric view.
*gag* Enough already. Monitor your gender's feel good phrases, not everyone else's.
The post is here.
*But the fact is, we don’t own the word. The world owns the word, and to the world, “beauty” is physical attractiveness and nothing more.
**So what can we do to overthrow the system once and for all?....Honestly, nothing. You and I can’t take on corporations and multibillion-dollar industries on our own.<----Oooooo, solidarity!
