I'm involved in a research project at university to create a programming language designed for women. One of the problems with women entering the field is that programming languages today are all designed around how men think. Our research involves taking existing programs, asking women what they think it does, and find ways to make it more clear to women's way of thinking. We started with the Python language since it's considered easy for beginners. Participants in the study were in the 14-20 age group with no previous programming experience.

The first thing we noticed was that the print function was confusing. Participants were turning on the printers and waiting for the paper to come out with text on it. We found that changing the vocabulary to something they were more familiar with greatly helped. Well over 90% identified the verb "tweet" as the sending of text, eliminating the confusion about the print function.

Before: print("Hello World!")
After: tweet "Hello World!"

Variables were the next challenge. Participants were confused about how the first and second lines were related in the following program. Many believed the program would simply print "x" to the terminal and wondered why the first line was there.
x = 5
tweet x

Despite being slightly more verbose, adding additional keywords proved more helpful. First, we added the "pretend" keyword and we changed the equal sign to "is".
pretend x is 5
tweet x

>> No. 33548675

Incrementing was the next challenge. The += syntax made no sense to the participants. Writing "x = x+1" only made things worse as girls said it was impossible and tried to balance the equation as the learned in algebra class. The researchers struggled to come up with an easier syntax until one of the participants suggested we just "like" it. The results were remarkable as all but one of the participants understood the new syntax.
pretend x is 5
like x
tweet x

This concluded the first round of of the study. We're giving the participants a few weeks off to study for their finals. We gave the girls a survey at the end of this round to ask a few questions about the experience. A majority found the name of the language, "Python", to be sexist. Two of the girls admitted they almost dropped out of the study because they felt violated by such a phallic and sexist term being used. A majority of the participants also disliked all the typing and wanted a "touch" interface to create programs. This possibility will be explored further in the second round of the study.

this is a troll thread

Women do not think less logically than men. Both sexes start with the same baseline and men's logic skills are honed, whereas in 'merica, women are told to discard theirs and grow their "hearts" (useless feelings) so they can have loads of bffs and eventually leech off of a big, strong man.

Nobody would design a programming language for women, it wouldn't work, and it's not needed outside of shitty neo-western cultures. They would change public education and culture to bring the female gender role closer to the male's, like men have been gradually feminized (also called "civilized"), redoubling humanity's constant assault against its own flawed nature.

Not the guy you were replying to, but....

As an autistic, in reality everything is black and white, you NTs seem to think that broad terms and general ideas are all that you need to explore.

For instance, as an NT would see it: Killing is morally wrong.

Then you guys have debates and people provide proof as to why killing is wrong or not. I would like to posit that each way something can be killed is a separate concept.

It is not morally wrong to accidentally step on a snail. It is not morally wrong to operate a train when someone commits suicide on the tracks.

Looking at it like that it is pretty obvious to see that there are situations where morality is entirely neutral when it comes to killing.

This is why I get confused when I see people say things like: violence is never ok.

Violence is too broad, in a game of football, there is indeed violence. When escaping an attacker, you have to employ violence.

From the autistic point of view, the all forms of feminism serve no purpose and are actually self harming, especially those that claim that any sexual intercourse is a form of rape.

Defining rape as any form of forced sexual intercourse the statistics show:
1)Men are the majority of rapists.
2)Men are the majority of rape victims.

Furthermore, women actually have the power in western cultures, they spend more money than anyone else, showing that they have more economic power despite not working as much. Women also are only 4% of the fatal accidents at work. Women have a longer life expectancy by 6 years than their male counterparts regardless of ethnicity.

Feminism only helps 2 groups of women.
1) Lesbians
2) Single women

Non-feminist women have sons, brothers, fathers, uncles who are all victims of the current system and as such in familial obligation feel the sting of a lack of prostate cancer research, lack of work safety standards, etc. that their male family feel.

I made an observation not long ago while at the zoo.

There was this monkey that would hoot, and passersby would sit and watch it when it was hooting. Typically it would hoot when it saw someone walking by.

Being autistic, I decided to observe the NTs reaction to the hooting monkey.

Now clearly this monkey was trying to communicate something to the passersby, but being different species obviously there was no successful communication between man and monkey.

Now there were 2 reactions that I saw when the monkey was communicating with the humans.

The first reaction was that of curiosity, possible empathy, wishing they could understand what the monkey was trying to say, these people were middle class, well educated and were mostly knowledgeable about the animals at the zoo.

The second reaction was that of contempt, and I often heard them call the monkey stupid. Now these people were uneducated, calling many of the animals by the wrong species.

The reaction you just had to me was the second.

Please reevaluate the direction your life is going.

My assumption from my observation is that the children were oblivious to proper social etiquette.

I actually work in special ed. I used to work with children with autism, helping mainstream them now I work with adults with severe autism.

The people who have negative experiences with people with special needs are all mental midgets but still qualify as being normal.

Everyone else around them is smarter than them and finally they can lord their superior intellect over someone.

His example with the monkeys is quite apt. Also you seem to think he is making a moral judgement but it is pretty clear that he is just predicting the intellect based on the reaction he got after outing himself as being less than normal.

You are describing people who have been socialized improperly. they often exhibit the same traits of autism but they do things that aren't autistic at all, like become fat or smell bad.

Also every autistic that I have ever met up with has shared a very strong desire to be social, like myself.

The problem is the way our brain works we don't pick on social cues the way NTs do, it has nothing to do with not wanting to be social.

In middle school I had a friend that was the equivalent of a brony/anime nerd, he frustrated me to no end because he very well could have had a normal social life but he chose to be an outcast.

I kinda can. Is there a middle term between NT and autist? I havent gone with a professional but most tests ive done online basically put me in the middle or the like.

Thats why I said poor boy, you literally know shit about what she's thinking. Women are 'complex'.

The implication was that you are so stupid that you aren't giving relevant replies to the conversation you are having, but some imaginary conversation.

The argument was made that 10% is a large portion of a population to display extraordinary abilities, in order to demonstrate how large it could be it was applies to NTs. Imagine a world where 700 million neurotypicals had some incredible intellectual ability.

As it stands now essentially any NT that does show savant abilities becomes immediately famous. 700 million savant NTs would have the human race colonizing space already

From my understanding most women do not even understand themselves.

Oh please, you don't have to behave this way if a conversation isn't going the way you want.

Did you pick up on my social cues yet?

I am sorry if it was rather cruel of me to tease a master autist like yourself, sir.

>> No. 33551093

You are either stupid or a bad troll. Never attribute to malice what can be applied to stupidity.

2 stupid NTs pretending to be 1 stupid NT

I guess even autists make use of coping mechanisms too. Interesting.

Explain to me how it isn't you being an idiot.

>> No. 33551147

Please don't pretend to be hurt?

Social cues aren't your best suit right now.

>> No. 33551159

There are no social cues on the internet.

To an autist, yes.

I don't want to take up the task of explaining how colors work to the colorblind, so excuse me if I don't want to spend the time to do so.

That's selfish of you.

Thank God for that!

Welp autistic signing out, my caffeine wore off, so I am sleepy.

try not to hate women too much, just stop being so physically repulsive and they will respond better to you.

From this thread I conclude autists are everything wrong with 4chan, what could have been a great thread derailed into autists with special snowflake syndrome. They also probably derail other threads for shit like a typo or similar.

>> No. 33551348

I think that was the purpose. Misogyny threads are about as interesting as srs, which is not at all.

I'd rather read about autism from the perspective of an autistic.

I know.

Can't get more intimate with autism than this.

Fuck, confirmed for SRS.

I somewhat agree, derailing them into this kind of shit with minimum whiteknighting is better than with full whiteknights. But mysoginy threads are like an obligatory evil, if the autist here was really an autist he probably cant understand why I said that.
