After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.

Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.

This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating.

my gender presentation preferences are to look boyish naked and then to wear the kind of clothes my next level girlbuds wear, but then sometimes I think “what would I look like with an angular bob” but I’d have to straighten it to make it look right and I’m opposed to straightening hair on a lot of levels and honestly the only reason I even am considering that idea at all is because I have a wig in that style so why wouldn’t I just wear the wig

I wonder what would happen if I asked for a pixie cut, like would they give me a pixie cut or would they try to adapt it because I’m a “boy” and like how do you adapt a subversively un-traditionally-feminine femme haircut to make it unsubversively masculine

I just realized these sideburns lower my selfie confidence so they’ve gotta go bye sideburns, relatedly: getting a haircut today unless it brings my discretionary spending for this month over 100 in which case lol waiting till October for THAT

Parent (to child): You’ll never have to beat boys off with a stick, that’s for sure. Not like I did. That was back before the discovery of hands

I use he or zey ('they' forms with a Z) pronouns. Don't show me pictures with creepy faces in them.

I post a lot about linguistics, some silly shit- cat gifs and the like- whiny text posts, things that make me angry, and every once in a while a good song.
