Unashamed enthusiasm since 1979
Fannish geekery, La la la la la hockey hockey hockey, Teen Wolf, cute animals, SF Giants, and occasional spells of righteous indignation.
I don't reblog anything that includes the phrase "reblog this if..."
"I really don’t want to shower but I want to be clean" an autobiography
"Now that I’m in the shower I really dont wanna get out" a sequel
"Now that I’m out, I don’t want to put on clothes" the spin-off
"I’m sitting here in my towel and I must have showered 2 hours ago" the self help booklet
"I have fashioned a toga from a flowered queen-sized bedsheet, and this is how I shall spend the rest of the day" - A tale of personal triumph.
It’s cool. I’ll go sit here in my corner of unlovedness. ;__________;
Dying under weight of guilt trip! Cannot. Withstand. Pressure.
As a woman, I’ve slowly been written out of the phone world and the phone market. That extra “.2” inches of screen size on each upgrade simply means that I can no longer do what I enviously observe men do every day: Check messages one-handed while carrying groceries or a bag; type a quick note while on a moving bus or a train where I have to hold on not to fall.
I must put down everything in my hands and use my phone with both hands for everything.
There is no rule that says the screen size must get bigger with each upgrade in memory or capabilities, and yet it does. For most men, it’s just one small, added benefit. For many women, though it’s a reminder that the tech industry doesn’t always remember or count your existence.
Just so we are clear: I don’t want a pink phone, I don’t want “women’s applications” and I don’t want ruffles or hello kitty on my phone.
I merely want a design that acknowledges that women exist, and women often have smaller hands than men.
And most men can keep even the largest phones in their pockets, which often isn’t the case with women’s clothes. (cosmiccelery)
I AM NOT A BOT OR A SHILL.
That said, I just bough the LG Vista and it (like most android phones) has “one handed” capabilities. With one swipe along the bottom of the phone you can reduce and position the active area of the screen to make it possible to still navigate with just one thumb. You can also independently adjust the phone keypad and the keyboard. I don’t use these options much because my hands aren’t particularly small… but there are some companies that are taking smaller hands into account even on larger devices.
Don’t bring quantitative evidence to a debate with me unless you are 100% sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’re interpreting it correctly. Because I will follow your source link and read the actual report until I understand it. And then I’ll look for the larger context in which the report exists.
And then I will take great joy pointing out all the ways in which you are wrong wrong wrongity wrong wrong.

I find my designation (con artist) HILARIOUS because I’ve regularly taught children in stores how to game their parents and when not to while waiting in line to pay. I even tried to teach my niece (money launderer) how to game The Mother, but she was basically useless and I gave up in disgust. Mind you, I did this in front of The Mother and she (cult leader) was stunned to see how easily I could manipulate her into doing shit.
When I was 9 I spent my lemonade stand money on parenting books so I could read the enemy team’s playbook and then I could say things like “Mom, letting me choose my own bedtime will really develop my autonomy which is an important developmental step at my age.”
Let’s be honest. None of you who know me are surprised that I get “assassin” right?
I have all the righteous anger but none of the energy to be a violent protest leader.
