How's tricks? You still in school? Whatarya studyin'? Me, I got a job. I'm also pondering whether or not I should become active in the RW community again. Pro- my continued presence here is a giant middle finger to The Roux That Shall Not Be Given an Adjective Con- I risk getting dragged down in wikidrama Pro- I might be able to put forward some alright stuff for mainspace, doing good and whatnot Con- I'm soooo laaaaaaazy.

Regretfully, I do not know who you are, but thanks for the consideration. I must decline since I don't think there's any way I can be useful to the community at present.

holding powers in reserve, it seems like such a good idea

Hello Blue[edit]

Long time no see. Welcome back.

Thanks Weaseloid! Glad to see you around too.

Seme Blue01:18, 7 October 2015
 

Hey Paravant. I looked at your userpage, you seem like a really cool guy (or at least some manner of kindred spirit).

There are plenty of other techs with the knowledge to use those tools should the need arise. If, for some reason, I'm needed myself, I can always be re-demoted. Cheers.

AD says you have JavaScript experience

User:Inquisitor Ehrenstein/myDocuments.js

I'm working on a script that will add a My documents link to the top user link bar that when clicked will being up a fixed position menu of various links to userspace subpages for things like signature pages, lists of userspace scripts, drafts, and that sort of thing.

  • You don't need the "configuration variables" section. Check out some other examples of scripts here, or view the source of this page to see the predefined variables you can use.
  • You need a line of code in your own /vector.js or whichever skin you use that tells MW to load your script. (addOnloadHook(yourfunction);)
  • If you want to have a page that the user will use to define what goes in this menu, you'll need to use the API to grab the contents of that page.

This short script has some examples of what you're looking for.

Seme Blue21:44, 20 September 2013
 

How's tricks? Long time no see. Nice to see you posting at RW again.

Thanks Weasel. Now that I've finished my first year of college there's a good chance I'll be more active here again. Smiley.gif

Eh, we should be patient. I emailed her three days ago and still haven't heard back, so I just assume she's handling school and other real life stuff. She'll get to it when she gets to it.

Annoying statisticians (for a worthy cause)

I saw a few posters today suggesting that people mark both male and female on the NZ census (which is tomorrow), in support of trans rights and related issues. I just did the census online and thus didn't have that option, but what do you make of the idea?

Peter mqzp07:49, 4 March 2013

Nonbinary and intersex stuff isn't really my bailiwick, as I am neither. I'm always in favor of annoying statisticians, though.

Seme Blue11:59, 4 March 2013

Favorite factoid regarding people getting creative with the census: as I recall, in the 2000 US census, several hundred people claimed to use the "subway" in Cincinnati, despite the fact that Cincinnati has no subway.

Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments.17:28, 4 March 2013

I use a "subway": the tunnel under the road by the railway station. There are no transportation questions in our census, however.

Peter mqzp21:27, 4 March 2013
 

What did those poor, innocent statisticians ever do to you?

Peter mqzp21:28, 4 March 2013

Weighted regression.

Heya, could you please restore my sysop rights? Nutty Roux removed them, apparently because I joke-blocked Tmt (that, and he holds a serious grudge against me).

I prefer to keep my sysop rights largely to prevent people like him from blocking me, and also to assist in reverting vandalism as well as other menial site tasks.

"Shut up, Brx."17:34, 22 February 2013

Someone else did it, you're off the hook

"Shut up, Brx."17:46, 22 February 2013

I don't hold a grudge. I simply believe you're worthless and have done enough to sabotage RW and divide the community that we're Ok to be finished with you.

You ought to know that your jokes aren't funny when people loathe you. Please go away forever.

Something you might enjoy

Once upon a time I wrote this on a forum which seems relevant to your decision to debunk MRAs, tangentally if nothing else. Feel free to use. At some point I'll transfer it to my blog. If I were you though, I would ignore the comments and never go to the general forum. It's overrun by commies and nazis.

Token Conservative (talk)22:36, 8 February 2013

Thanks! Looks really interesting. Especially because it looks like you used some quantitative data analysis, which makes me swoon.

Even after watching Gattaca, i'm still in favor of transhumanistic body modification like that. Maybe i have the attitude of a mad scientist.

Actually, so did I. Haven't seen it for a while.

Scarlet A.pngd hominem11:59, 28 January 2013
 

Pretty sure you know this person more than I would

but he (I think he's a trans man, vs. she a trans woman - it's hard to tell from teh name, and the bio intentionally or otherwise does not use a pronoun) came up in my usual reproduction rights articles here. enjoy if it's new to you!

Green mowse.pngGodot She was a venus demilo in her sister's jeans01:47, 21 January 2013

That article reads like something right out of the Postmodernism Generator.

Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX01:54, 21 January 2013

I, like ListenerX, am rankled whenever someone uses words that I haven't approved of yet.

Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments.02:42, 21 January 2013

I thought the same first time I saw it, though it's not to do with the word use but more about the phrasing and how it's structured. Perhaps not as far as the po-mo generator, but certainly reminiscent of a terrible undergraduate essay in places. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something stylistic that makes it a P.I.T.A to read.

Scarlet A.pngmoral08:48, 21 January 2013
 

Whaddaya know, the first comment I see is by Cathy Brennan, and it's oozing with contempt. What does she even do? It's like every time someone is talking about transgender issues on the internet, she's there. Maybe Brennan is actually a bigoted AI that gained self-awareness as Janice Raymond's PC

"Shut up, Brx."02:55, 21 January 2013

I'm calling Poe on that HuffPost account. Or maybe she's actually gone insane. Either is possible.

Seme Blue03:00, 21 January 2013

Brennan's post reminds me of something Fred Phelps said about a transgender/"cisgender" couple in one of those infamous faxes of his: "These two fags want to have perverted sex with one another, so they pretend one of them is a woman."

Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX03:16, 21 January 2013
 

Either way, that sounds like Brennan's views, and if your actual opinion is indistinguishable from someone taking the piss out of your views...

Scarlet A.pngpostate08:45, 21 January 2013
 
 
 

Thanks for the link! The bio does say he's a he and I assume he's a trans man; interesting historical reading nonetheless. The larger thesis seems to be about the commonality between the women's reproductive rights movement and the activism, loosely-defined, of trans women as it manifests in the politics of people of color.

Seme Blue02:58, 21 January 2013

I thought the article's point was that focusing on abortion rights discounts the concerns of trans-women to whom abortion rights mean diddly-squat.

Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX03:00, 21 January 2013

A trivial interpretation, I think.

"[N]o matter how one physically occupies the identity of a woman, the threat of economic hardship as a product of structural racism and misogyny, inevitability regulates their sexuality and how they engage their bodies in sex. / It also points to the historical similarities of community mobilizing that exists amongst all women of color..."

Seme Blue03:05, 21 January 2013
 

Well, if he is a trans man, it means he was once a she, and Cathy can doubly jump in a lake, cause he (then she) has not only seen the issues of being tran, but also knows what abortion rights mean to the world's women. NOt that a man born man, or woman born man couldn't know that. I'm just saying "he gets it".

Green mowse.pngGodot She was a venus demilo in her sister's jeans03:18, 22 January 2013

"Well, if he is a trans man, it means he was once a she..." And now I expose my ignorance. Is it the case that all "trans" people have at some point in their life changed sexes, if that's what you mean there? I was under the impression that "trans" could simply mean "not fitting into the gender binary."

Theory of Practice "Seneca Falls and Selma and Stonewall"03:30, 22 January 2013

Postmodern gender terminology is a mess. Whatever impressions you have, there's bound to be a group that disagrees. This means that you're never quite sure what a person's history is based on the terminology applied to them. @Godot - I don't know. I tend to be sceptical of the idea of "universal sisterhood", as I'm sceptical of any claimed mutually exclusive qualities of something like gender.

Seme Blue04:41, 22 January 2013

Didn't say anything about universal sisterhood. but if he was once biologically a she, she could have gotten pregenat. This is not a dis on women who were genetically male once, but it is a reality all women share. Doesn't make it more or less "real", just a shared reality.

Green mowse.pngGodot She was a venus demilo in her sister's jeans04:48, 22 January 2013
 

TOP, i think i should have used "bioligically" there, to make my argument. my point was if he was once biologically a healthy woman (had all the parts, montly cycles, etc) than even if you don't "feel" like a woman, you are still aware of the reality that you can get pregnant if you are raped. it's something that passes all women's mind, i think, at one time or another.
