altavista would always give me a million links to gross porn with only the most tenuous connection to my search terms.

that windows server still has a market after that and linux didn't just absolutely squash it says some things, and none of them are positive.

remember when google used to return what you actually searched for instead of converting every word to the closest SEO-bait synonym and then returning 200 aliexpress links so you can buy a fake version of the thing you didn't actually search for?

I spent like three months working on a design for altavista advanced search that made it way easier to use and the search team tech leadership dismissed it offhand because it was "unnecessary." this was the same group of ex-DEC greybeards that told the exec team not to worry about google because our technology was better, then most of them ended up working there within 2 years

i don’t know if it’s necessarily to eliminate things “males” can “gaze” at for it to not be directed from the perspective of male gaze

it seems like so much work to be homophobic or transphobic or really any phobic. always analyzing the ways this thing or that thing might be gay, rather than just rolling in and being all “sup ripped guy selling video cards show me what you got”

Apr 13, 2004



idk like strictly “phobic” is too strong of a word, like, my 8yo son doesn’t like seeing any kissing on a tv show or movie. if that feeling naturally arose in an adult when they saw two dudes kissing, did they put effort into that? it might take effort to care about it but the feeling off the bat just happens and doesn’t necessarily indicate fear

does it?

most children go through the “eew kissing” phase which is perfectly normal

most well adjusted adults when they see a couple being sweet react with “aww” regardless of who it is

echinopsis
Apr 13, 2004



perhaps but that’s horrendously presumptuous and also relies on social norms and the environment in which someone was raised

my point being is that you can not like something without being anti it or afraid of it

Then you have a responsibility that no man has ever faced. You have your fear which could become reality, and you have Godzilla, which is reality.
