Ramblings of a Lazy CS Student

I'm a computer science student. I procrastinate (a lot). I like art. I like reading. I like movies. I live on an island. Yeah. (Also, 少し日本語が話せる. :-) )

This page is mostly (relatively carefully curated, but in the end probably not too cohesive...) reblogs, but I do post stuff I find while out and about on the web, and also blog occasionally (mostly about the stress of exams and programming projects).

blog entries / music / art blog / deviantart


Ask me anything
This blog is currently under construction! I'm slowly creating a custom theme for myself and atm have only finished the text, photo, and photoset post layouts. Sorry for any inconvenience! :B

After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.

Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.

This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating.


Stop interrupting me: gender, conversation dominance and listener bias, by Jessica Kirkpatrick from Women In Astronomy

Implicit bias is a thing, just like privilege. Calling it out isn’t meant to shame anyone, but to alert us to step it up and improve ourselves so everyone can have a voice. Be conscious of what you and others are saying, and know when not to speak.

I was demoing a presentation to two of my cousins a couple weeks ago and I realized I was making more eye contact and, talking more toward my male cousin than my female cousin, so i corrected, but damn it is nearly automatic, listener bias, women in stem, women, quote,

have you ever just assumed that a word was pronounced a certain way and you end up pronouncing it incorrectly throughout your entire life and then one day someone corrects you and its like you can almost hear satan laughing as the flames of hell begin to seep up from underground and slowly burn you to death

in high school one of my best friends convinced me that Sid Vicious was pronounced “Vi-shoos”, I don’t know if I’ll ever really forgive him

i believed that for more than a year, it might have been multiple years, that's where my cynicism started forming, text posts, minutiae,

I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%When I get my Japanese visa, I am moving to Tokyo to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Studio Ghibli or a game designer!I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.Wish me luck in Japan!
