If you are reading this, thank this woman. Her name is Grace Hopper, and she is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists ever. You think Gates and Jobs were cool? THIS WOMAN WORKED ON COMPUTERS WHEN THEY TOOK UP ROOMS. She invented the first compiler, which is a program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can be read by a processor. Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by her first compiler.

Spread the word! (Although I’ll bet there are still some dudebros out there who’ll claim she’s a “fake geek”…)

Favorite fact: She coined the term “debugging” when they had to remove an moth (an actual, living moth) that had gotten trapped in the Mark II computer at Harvard University in 1947. While referring to glitches as bugs existed before, she brought the term into popularity. 

She also got the trend of personal computers going with her suggestion to the DoD to use more smaller units rather than one big one.

Please explain to me why I never knew about her before?

Pronoun trouble.

Anonymous asked: shut the fuck up, asians don't face racism. I'm black and I know what racism is, and you don't face it, you gladly benefit from white privilege and oppress black people too. stop thinking that people oppressed is "cool" and go fuck yourself

chinesewomenunited:

I’m going to stop you right there.

Black people race racism, of course, but so do Asian people. We’re constantly sexualised, fetishized and stereotyped. Violence against Asians, both physical and sexual, is real. There are racial slurs that are used as a means to silence and demean us. We’re constantly whitewashed in the media, and yellowface is still a thing. So no, Asian people do face racism. 

Also, while there may be some white-passing Asian people, they’re still people of colour and most of us don’t look white anyway. Never have I been mistaken to be white and many of my followers will say the same.

I don’t think people being oppressed is “cool”. That’s not the point of this blog at all and I most certainly would much rather not be oppressed. This blog is a safe space for Chinese women and a place for us to share our experiences. Please don’t come in here and invalidate our experiences.

And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.

You don’t test a gentle person the way that you don’t steep tea for too long. Submerge me and I will imbue, and what was sweet will be bitter. I will be strong on your tongue and unpleasant to the taste, and you’ll regret drowning me in your guile.

My gentleness is not for your taking.
