@all #queer


Im kinda trying to understand more what you're all about so i got questions that i'd love to have answered by anyone** who defines themselves as queer.**
  • How would you define queer. ( who would you in and exclude specificaly in/from your definition )
  • Why do you describe yourself as queer? / what does it give to you.
  • Through what ways has your self description/understanding as queer happened?
  • Is being queer something you use to "form your social circles" / a scene/community thing. Or would you maybe also do that just for yourself.
and the last one maybe a #question for everybody
  • Do you experience the queer community as rather inclusive or rather exclusive.

ps. if you could add what area/country you're from that might be interesting as well

De week doormidden zagen
Image/photo
Image/photo Betekenis : deze uitdrukking verwijst naar het midden van de werkweek (woensdagmiddag 12 uur); die wordt veel in de kantoorwereld gebruikt: Meneer Zaagmans is langsgeweest, de week is weer doormidden, de week vordert en het weekend nadert (met rasse schreden). Voor vele mensen die uitkijken naar het weekend, is Zaagmans een lichtpunt in de werkweek.
Image/photo Meaning : In the Netherlands we say 'the man with the saw' (= Meneer Zaagmans) comes along on Wednesday at 12 o'clock to cut the week in two, so yeah it’s almost weekend!» It is a way to encourage oneself or colleagues to carry on until the end of the week! This idiomatic expression is mostly used by office workers and is a glimmer of hope for them in the middle of the week.
Image/photo Signification : cette expression se réfère au milieu de la semaine de travail (à savoir le mercredi midi); elle est surtout utilisée par les employés de bureau et signifie : l'homme à la scie (= Meneer Zaagmans) vient de passer, il a coupé la semaine en deux, la semaine avance et le week-end approche (à grands pas). Pour beaucoup de gens qui aspirent au week-end, Monsieur Zaagmans est une lueur d'espoir au milieu de la semaine de travail.

Varianten : de week doorzagen / de week doormidden breken / (weer) de week in twee doen

The weekend is almost here again / It's midweek, and the weekend is within reach. / It's midweek, and the weekend is almost here!
Image/photo Frans; français : Quand le mercredi est passé, la semaine est presque finie! / Courage! On est déjà mercredi, le week-end sera vite là. / On est déjà mercredi ! Le week-end va arriver à grand pas! / Nous voilà déjà mercredi, la semaine file!

Anarchist prisoner, Soheil Arabi


\

Soheil Arabi’s, the Iranian anarchist, message from prison on the
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.\

“Humanity deserves the best

Speak of fighting violence against women! Of women’s struggle against
oppression, discrimination, and violence by society; Of violence in Evin
and Qarchak to the Varamin hunger strike; Of the abuse and threats
interrogators make against women; Of tears shed at meetings; Combating
violence against women is, without a doubt, one of the most important
demands of the liberation movement and we are all fighting against
gender discrimination.\
\
The discrimination that systems have taught us where women are men’s
property and tools to serve them. This was the thought that had me
ashamed of silence.

Silence against violence is betrayal. Rise up and shout: Shout, “my
mother does not deserve violence, my sister and I do not deserve
misogyny”.

Stand up and tear down the barriers, you warrior! I bow down to all
those who stood up against gender discrimination and violence,
particularly violence against women, and paid the price of cold, damp
prison cells, at the foot of the gallows and under the lash of whips.

I bow down to the mothers who raised freedom fighters; those who saw
violence and stood against it.

The word “violence” needs to be erased and efforts to eliminate it
require a humane society. Now is the time to stand up against the
clenched fists raised at women and liberators. So I stand up too with
mighty women liberators shouting to eliminate violence against women,
and not to be silent against violence.

Rise up so that our children may learn humanity deserves the best.

Soheil Arabi November, 2018 Greater Tehran Central Penitentiary”

Two things about #English #grammar:
  • Please don't say
    "The reason <(that) something> is because ."
    Say just
    "The reason <(that) something> is <(that) something else>."
  • Please don't say
    "Just because doesn't mean <(that) something else>."
    Say
    "Just because ."
Thank you.
 
My #inspiring-person for today is

dr. Eliyahu Rips


A #jewish #math professor, a very good mathematician who took part in the International Mathematical Olympiad, and in #1969 followed Jan #Palach's protests against occupation of #Czechoslovakia by attempting self-immolation in #Riga, #Latvia. He survived, was labeled insane and put in a lunatic asylum, where he actually managed to solve an important mathematical problem. He went on to finish his Ph.D. and become a professor at the Hebrew University of #Jerusalem.

Apart from this extraordinary life story the inspiring aspect to me is actually his personality. Though a true #hero and a very successful man in one person, he is very modest and humble. Although eight of his siblings were killed, he doesn't show a sign of hatred. What I have heard him talk about were rather positive things and emotions, such as the asylum staff having been very nice to him. I deeply admire this person.

I have learned about him from a very good #Czech TV program that makes long, in-depth interviews with interesting people, such as #Nobel prize winners and #astronauts. The best part is they also make the interviews available in the original #English version on the Internet, and as #podcasts as well. You can watch the interview here (scroll down for English):

DeepL, apparently, doesn't work so good translating into French and, in some cases, Spanish!


You be the judge:

DeepL funktioniert anscheinend nicht so gut bei der Übersetzung ins Französische und in einigen Fällen ins Spanische!

DeepL, apparemment, ne fonctionne pas aussi bien en français et, dans certains cas, en espagnol !

DeepL, aparentemente, no funciona muy bien traduciendo al francés y, en algunos casos, al español!

Oh joy! It translates Russian now!

DeepL, по-видимому, не очень хорошо переводится на французский, а в некоторых случаях и на испанский!

Speak up for #opensource!

Have you heard about the Common Voice project by Mozilla? They are currently putting together a #voice databases for various languages and make them accessible with a public domain license to allow developers to work with them. They also plan to create their own voice recognition software.

While I think it's foolish to use one of the contemporary commercial smart speakers that transfer your data to some company without your control, I can think of various good uses of voice recognition, especially for disabled or elderly people. That's why I decided to check out the project.

When I did, I noticed there were very few female #German voices among the recordings to be verified, so I added some clips myself. Then I learned that women are underrepresented overall and there is a big backlog of #English soundbites to be verified. They started recording English before they started recording other languages, so there is much more material and it's of worse quality, because they had to figure out how to create a good recording process along the way. By now recording has become quite easy and - be warned - quite addictive. I have had a lot of fun listening to English clips by speakers from various regions. My favourite was someone cheerfully singing "It's a long way from Tipperary, it's a long way from home" with perfect intonation. Yes, voice recognition should get that.

Verifying German clips I liked the recordings of a male speaker whose first #language is probably French. His #accent is faint, but noticeable. I realized a voice recognition software needs to be able to deal with all kinds of accents. So I decided to record some English clips as well. Among the German clips I checked few people spoke a recognizable #dialect. There is one Bavarian woman (while I have lived in Bavaria for over 20 years, people still mistake me for a tourist because of my northern accent), but that was it.

As for other languages, there is very little material yet. Recordings for #French, #Dutch and #Italian have begun. Collecting #Spanish sentences is still work in progress.

Take a look and maybe contribute, if you like the project: https://voice.mozilla.org

#FOSS
 
so, we have opened a fucking #collaborative #blog, where anyone can #participate by writing #content via #gitlab or #email -> http://blog.unitoo.pw/

currently the #rules is written only in #Italian and @Claudio Maradonna would like the posts to be only in Italian -> https://gitlab.com/unitoo/unitoo-blog/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
but anyone who understands the regulation can write, at least in #English, and #contribute
maybe someone will #translate it into other #languages as well... Italian included XD
