“Harvard University Press International is promoting one of its new books, co-authored by Brooklyn College cultural anthropologist Katrina Karkazis. She’s also a senior research fellow with the Global Health Justice Partnership at Yale University.
The book “debunks the commonly held idea that testosterone and masculinity are connected,” according to the academic press.”
Someone should explain that to the people treating female to male trans individuals with testosterone, and the sports authorities who make low testosterone levels a requirement for male to female trans cheaters. It would also help if the permanent developmental effects of in utero exposure to testosterone was explained.
Such explanation might have saved this school district the money spent on this incoherent gesture.
“The changes will only impact the high school and will feature 76 private showers and 48 private changing areas.”
If there’s no difference beyond pronouns between transgendered persons and non-transgendered persons, and no biological difference between males and females, one wonders why you’d have to have private showers or changing areas. It’s almost as if they’re acknowledging the possibility of prurience in teenagers.
Prurience, however, is far from the ‘mind’ of facial recognition software.
“A recent study by computer-science researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder found that major AI-based facial analysis tools—including Amazon’s Rekognition, IBM’s Watson, Microsoft’s Azure, and Clarifai—habitually misidentified non-cisgender people.”
I, for one, welcome our new AI overlords. They won’t need separate showers.
