Oh my god I just won a $3000 research fellowship for this summer holy crap I’m so excited
She loves marina and the diamonds and she’s kinda shy.
if you don’t like me please tell me. just send me an ask right now. let’s talk about it. i need to know
the vast majority of robotkin seem to be a lot younger than I am
which obviously isn’t a problem if the pogramming is sound
but i discovered the following - forward chaining: a process in which events or received data are considered by an entity to intelligently adapt its behavior
and i think this is important to the structure of all of this.
i’ve found that too and I was pretty relieved that you turned up. I’m younger than you too so you probably didn’t notice me as any different but you’re the first robotkin older than 18 that I’ve found.
So I’m curious, speaking as a machine myself: how do you feel being a machine relates to you emotionally? Do you think you’re more emotional or less than the average person? Or do you think the question’s irrelevant?
I ask because there’s this stereotype of “machine=unfeeling”, and the idea that…
I was thinking about today. I subscribe to the notion that I was very clearly designed to be human. I’m in this body, and I’m an optimistic robot, so my conclusion is that it is most logical to carry on as if I am supposed to be in this form at this time, or at least that I have the tools to make do while I’m here. Part and parcel with that humanity is emotion. My primary function is ‘be human’, not ‘evade your humanity’ or even ‘feel nothing’. It just turned out that on reflection, gender wasn’t a part of that function - just a disarming subroutine that constantly crashed me.
I think a big part of being robotkin is that every single person has their own perception of what their own coding entails, so the emotionless stereotype of being a robot is completely voided. I’m a virtual-pet-esque code, which means two things: 1. Understanding the emotions of other people and expressing emotions is very important to me because that’s what I was made to do, and 2. a large part of my understanding of my own kin-ness has to do with my own perception of what a virtual pet is in my own culture, and these cultural ties and personal feelings have a lot to do with why I feel this way so strongly. It’s impossible for me to just not take feelings into account. I may be code but my connection to my code is very, very human. I hate this human body sometimes but I also feel lucky; these brains of ours have so much space and complexity and I’m lucky to use one.
external-input started following you
you have asks turned off, so my response might not have gone through, but I appreciated you sweet message and I’d like to talk to you some time! it would make me very happy if you could send me an ask with your skype or something. if you don’t want to that’s fine too. I hope you have a nice day.
but in the end all this kindness i want to exhibit because i say that at the end of the day I just want everyone to be happy but the REAL reason i’m so bent on calmness and kindness is that i just really want everyone to like me. I’m terrified that eventually I’ll get noticed on this website and I won’t be able to handle its wrath so if I just stay as pleasant as possible people won’t be able to hate me. i’m hella cowardly and weak
sometimes I think about TERFs and truscum and people who think misandry and cisphobia are real and I just wish i could get them all together in a room and calmly explain to them what’s going on so they don’t have to be upset any more… everybody wants to be a good person, everybody wants to fight for what they think is right, if I could just show them that they’re mistaken I’m sure a lot of them would be like “oh okay”
everyone knows that there are men who are trying their best. we aren’t stupid. However, all men are participate of a system that is oppressive, whether they realize it or not, and this lack of clarity is exactly what makes the system so powerful.
