HN users are noticing :marseynoooticer: something:

« I’m on the board overseeing Linux graphics. Half of us are trans »

From a purely statistical POV, this is absurdly bizarre.

Not really.

Statistically there will be weird coincidences completely naturally. It's also quite arbitrary which we see as meaningful. If say, Linux networking has unusually many people called "John" that probably will be unnoticed because nobody pays that much attention to common, unremarkable names. If they all randomly turn out to have green eyes, then that's more visible. It's completely subjective which of those is more remarkable.

There are also likely social effects -- people stick together, and some side interests align with some fields. Eg, I think it's reasonable to guess there's going to be more furries than average in VR development. Part because VR allow you to look like whatever you want a lot of the time, part because people will invite their friends in.

It is not just a random coincidence. It's a phenomenon more broadly across programming, especially very low-level/hardware stuff.

There does seem to be a correlation between autism spectrum and gender confusion, with the former often present in individuals who are into highly technical pursuits.

The logic seems to be not conforming to masculine stereotypes ==> must be a woman.

It's not "gender confusion". They know very well who they are. You are confused about the topic.

HRT destroys programmer communities the same way as crack was destroying black communities in the 1980s

Now it is other way around, sane people framed as Nazi and psychopaths while doctors experiment on children without parents consent. I'm glad there is still sane countries where this whole delusion is banned and not existing.

c'mon HN, don't flag this. it's a perspective piece about being a trans developer in a harsh political landscape. we upvote and discuss this stuff quite often.

It's someones political manifesto. Not sure why it's relevant to HN.

Asking to not be oppressed is a manifesto?

It's so fricking obvious that neurodivergent trans people are just autists fixating on social roles they don't understand because they're not supposed to be neatly defined. It's crazy that no one with authority has stepped in to tell them that they're over thinking it.

There is legit such a thing as over thinking. There are fuzzy concepts that should be used as a not too examine heuristic or it breaks down. You genuinely miss the forest for the trees often and it's something autists are more liable than neurotypicals to do.

I used it correctly. Neurodivergents over think gender, it's why they go trans. They think there is significantly more tham there is and they end up wrapping their identify around the fixation.

I wonder if a distro or some other project made by forced anons will ever take off. Like, to contribute you have a random name assigned to you, there's an IRC where you must use that random name, if you talk about who you are irl you get banned, but you're invited to reregister as a new anon, maybe get GPT to rewrite most of what they post about to minimise stenography attacks. You could be interacting with :marseyglow:, :marseytrain:, :marseytaliban:, or :chudsey:, and you'd have no idea. It wouldn't matter. All that matters is your work for the project. I've wanted to make this for the last few years but I have a job. Maybe when I retire and need something to do with my money and time.

Half the reason to contribute is that it can be used as inroads and networking to the industry, anonymizing it removes that leaving just the actual code as product. Only true believers will be willing to contribute as spending time toiling without being able to put it on your track record isn't going to be accepted. You'll also likely have people 'expose' themselves when they leave the project to try to parlay it into a position in the industry by retroactively claiming everything they contributed onto their commit record.

There'd have to be a powerful incentive, either anonymizing commits which people can vote favorable for points which can be parlayed into something, having an explicit political goal, or have a strong community which will grant meaningful respect and belonging in exchange for good commits(like here).

It's not going to happen

The object/memory model in Linux (how you pass around data) is extremely difficult to interface with w/ Rust. Huge fundamental parts of it would literally have to be rewritten in Rust and data structures rebuilt from the ground up, without solid backwards compatibility, which is rarely ever how major progress is made in mature software. It's always incremental and bit-by-bit.

Still there's tons of opportunities around the edges of Linux, like drivers, self-contained code, and userspace software that will very likely be heavily Rust in the coming years.

In the meantime the core of Linux will remain C for the foreseeable future.
