Apple enforces SJW thought-policing

It's hardly a surprise, really, is it now?


I find it informative that the same people who insist that Bruce Jenner's real and only name is "Caitlyn" are those who insist on calling me by my given name even though I've been publicly going by Vox for 25 years now.

It's funny, too, how the names chosen by these autogynophiliac freaks is never Mary or Sue, but always something they think is more glamorous. It reminds me of the way women with past lives were always either Cleopatra or Marie Antoinette, and never some random street prostitute who died of tuberculosis at the age of 25.

So any normal guys who happen to be named Bruce Jenner just disappear off of the internet, now. How lovely for them.

I thought Vox was a user name instead of a pen name. The people who call you by your given name want to discredit you. So the logic is calling him Bruce discredits his new gender. I can never call him Caitlyn especially since he has accepted his ESPY award based on his past athletic performance. You can't have both.

The first screenshot is actually a result set from Wolfram Alpha. You can go there and type in the question "How tall is Bruce Jenner" and it does the switch to Caitlyn.

My guess is the second query is also being sent to Wolfram Alpha, since it returns the same answer.

Siri uses quite a few data sources, none of which Apple controls or builds, so it's somewhat disingenuous to blame Apple for it.

Old men are supposed to be full of wisdom and to be held in high regard by the younger generations as a sign of respect for their leadership and sound judgements. What the Hell happened. Now many of them, like this faggot Jenner, are nothing but degenerate freaks. I was flying home from Philly a few years ago on a Friday evening and remember seeing this old dude walking around the terminal in tight red spandex go go shorts with a halter top on as if it was normal. Romans 1 is much better understood when you see living breathing examples in public. Very sad, but equally disgusting.

I'm sure that's it. Calling Bruce Jenner by his birth name discredits his gender transition, so the SJWs won't do that. Calling Vox "Theodore Beale" is a way of insinuating he isn't a real writer.

He killed a woman - an actual woman - just a few weeks ago. Her name was Kim Howe.

Her children tried to get compensation through the courts. Jenner - who is a multimillionaire - said they "won't get a penny" from him.

And he wanted his eldest daughter to be aborted.

Correct the best distraction is transgendered! The car accident and the whatever divorce of Kris and Bruce is what makes a man who needs MOnEY via E! of all hideous channels.

Cali has all sorts of interesting divorce and compensation laws perhaps Bruce is another boomer who wants his kids to have nothing too. None of these 60 something + understand they are harming themselves after 65 not helping their health at all. In the end all those people have is maybe a faith but really, its just their fiat money and their health. One would opt for health over dollars.

Like Trump, Jenner needs attention and are pure self promoters.

Bruce Jenner is a self-mutilating mentally ill 65 year old, and also a Boomer. My wife and I were talking about how the only consistent policy of the left over the last 50 years has been, one way or another, population control. Tranny Rights, Gay Rights, Reproductive Rights, Militant Feminism, Sexual Education, Easy Divorce, Sexual Promiscuity, etc., etc., etc., and all the shattered humanity it has left in its wake - the only consistency across them all has been bending down the fertility rate. And the hammer of all these policies - or at least the philosophically complicit useful idiots - has been the Boomers. I'm not trying to pick a fight about generations, but I guess I'm asking more of a question - are the Boomers the Clone Army? Were the Boomers conscientiously engineered?

This is a trademark of a particular flavor of psychosis, which runs heavily in the manic depressives. The belief comes from the strong emotion which precedes it, to somehow rationalize the legitimacy of the strong emotion- for instance, I talked to a Muslim guy once who was in a manic phase. He thought he was channeling the prophet Mohammed. He also was thinking about becoming an Army sniper, but when I asked him his mile time he said he doubted he could run a mile :-).

I am telling you, the women in Bruce's life or a need for a major sympathy soaked distraction was a ruse to evade fault for a wreck. The women ruined Bruce, Jenner was poisoned with estrogen and lost it.

Anyways, the women ruined him after 10 to 20 years with K-dash women out of control, he lost it. Self Harmer.

Then again the girls never had a chance, they lost their father Mr. Kdash to cancer, the girls lost their father, their rock.

Bruce tried to lead them and was a motivational speaker, of course he was, he has something to impart to others. His girls mocked him, E! filmed this like its normal.

Then Jenner tells the frankenmedia, he is the new normal post op or at Cate - this is utter societal decline. Post American times.

Is it really a question anymore whether some people can be paid to play their part as contracted by the Zeitgeist? Should "we" really conifne ourselves to the debate of whether Jenner action's were genuine or not so that "we" can then never just plain assert that he's a bought individual? His transformation AS SEEN in the context of once the greatest white male athlete CAN ONLY lead one to conclude that he was bought. He is bought and sold like so many in the entertainment-sport-political nexus.

The only thing Brucelet should be saying while playing the-greatest-white-male-athlete-turned-female-media-whore is,"No, I am not paid by the Puppet Masters to play this part." There must be a "Caitlyn doth protest too muchess" moment right around the corner.

Anyone who is directly related to someone who chooses this aberrant behavior is part of a group with whom I need not associate (and since I'm neither a business owner nor an employee, commercially compelled association is not a concern.)

The LGBT crowd is pulling in weak-minded people who have a pathological need for attention and (obviously) a chronic shortage of the talent necessary to earn it. In a sense this is great! It's like rewarding people who shouldn't reproduce without resorting to eugenics.

Blogger Cail Corishev July 15, 2015 7:55 PM  

The interesting thing here is that there's no way this "just happened." If these sites were simply searching the information from databases as usual, they wouldn't suddenly be picking up the name-switch there. Someone had to go in and manually add a line of code, or at least a special "typo correction" type of entry.

When sites are dealing with billions of pieces of information and millions of queries, obviously they don't do that sort of thing very often -- they can't do it to more than a tiny percentage of the whole. Yet it was important enough to do it here, and in a hurry.

And it's not because any of them actually care about the guy. I've never seen the show(s), but apparently he was a running joke in the tabloids before this; and if he killed himself tomorrow, they'd forget about him ten minutes after they finished using it to beat up on straights for making him do it somehow. So all this rewriting of reality has nothing to do with him. It's all about SJW signalling and laughing in the faces of the squares.

In difficult times, the deep devotion of a traditional family is both anchor and bulwark. The LGBT crowd is generally quite frank about the shallow, transitory relationships that are their hallmark.

Cail is right here. This was deliberate.

Search engines don't just pick up on the connection between "Bruce" and "Caitlyn" by chance. Search engines aren't even supposed to make that kind of connection. There might be search results with webpages that talk about Bruce changing his name to Caitlyn, but unless a search engine had gained sentience (or at least the ability to process natural language very well, a technology that is far beyond our grasp currently), it's not going to know that the Bruce you're talking about is Caitlyn. Perhaps that "Bruce" is somehow related to "Caitlyn", but it won't make that final jump to "Bruce is Caitlyn".

So someone did this on purpose.

Soga,

Yeah, over time, search engines can make connections like that. That's how they're able to do the "Did you mean XYZ?" stuff: with fuzzy matching and recognizing when a rare string shows up in the same kind of places as a similar and more common one.

But Bruce/Caitlyn isn't fuzzy; it's two completely different words. So even if both names keep coming up on the same pages, there's no easy way for an algorithm to know they're the same person and not a married couple or siblings or something. I can imagine ways that an algorithm could pick it up -- but again, it would take time to pick up that 'Bruce' changed to 'Caitlyn' on many different sites.

And even then, these tools didn't come up and say, "Uh, do you mean Caitlyn Jenner?" They just changed it as if certain, which tells me it was overridden manually. They might as well just say, "But there are five lights, Captain; why can't you see them?"

I don't think so. When I ask Cortana, "How tall is Bruce Jenner?", it responds verbally with a precise measurement of 6'2" tall and short text description of "Caitlyn Jenner height 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 meters)".

However, when I ask it, "How tall is Ron Mexico?", it only returns normal search results beginning with the Wikipedia article on Michael Vick (which lists his height at 6'0"). If the AI were intelligent enough to make the Jenner association and go with it, why did it not process the Vick/Mexico association in the same way and report the precise result?

Because it was not specifically programmed that way.

Especially since we know SJWs have infiltrated practically every company out there. They were all ready with rainbow-themed logos the moment the SCOTUS ruling came out, and that was far more work and more brazen than a fuzzy-matching rule saying, "Replace 'Bruce' with 'Caitlyn' when followed by 'Jenner.'" It would only take one SJW coder, or one coder willing to do a SJW's bidding; and it's just the sort of history rewriting they've been doing everywhere else, so why not here?

Things began to really go down hill once moving pictures were invented, and the trend accelerated with TV. (This accelerated the Progressive Era's statism-as-religion trend.)

It seems well supported that written information is processed quite differently from information acquired via video/movie. In the latter, most of ones higher brain functions are simply turned off, and people's ability to discriminate plausibility from BS craters.

I strongly suspect that no society can succeed when TV is the dominant medium for information transmission, and that includes not only TV/video that is purported to be "truthful" (i.e., the news) but also fiction. Lest we forget, constant repetition of norming deviance (e.g., "Will and Grace" et. al.) "informs" people quite as effectively, if not more so, than TV/video that purports to be factual.

This is surely part of the decline-and-fall calculus.

Well, if they understood the etymology of Theodore, they wouldn't be as quick to do so. But then they're SJW's, for whom words have no meaning.

Cail Corishev: "I'd say it's possible that an algorithm figured out that replacement on its own, but it's far more likely that a human did it."

Certainly it's possible, but a few more tests show that it isn't the case, at least on Cortana (which uses Bing, I believe).

When I ask Cortana, "What is Bruce Jenner's birth name?", it responds with normal search results, the first one being the Wikipedia article on Caitlyn Jenner which contains the phrase "Birth Name: William Bruce Jenner". This is a more conventional best match algorithm (100% of terms), with no Caitlyn-Bruce replacement necessary.

Another one is "Where can I find Bruce Jenner's biography?" The first result is "Bruce Jenner - Biography.com" at www.biography.com/people/bruce-jenner-307180; the biography page itself says Caitlyn Jenner, but the indexed search result (apparently) does not. Unless it is making the association and searching beyond the index, it appears to be using the original search term of Bruce.

To me, this means that the specific question related to height, as with the Siri case, is a specially programmed association that was intentionally inserted into whatever algorithm or database they're using.

> glamorous

"Caitlyn" is pretty much the current generic McName of American girl children. Some variant of that, usually "creatively" or illiterately spelled, probably get stuck to one infant in four or five...

About the only names less glamorous would be "Waldtraut" or "Gertrude." Which are probably perfectly good names in their time and place, but not in contemporary America.

76. WaterBoy - However, when I ask it, "How tall is Ron Mexico?", it only returns normal search results beginning with the Wikipedia article on Michael Vick (which lists his height at 6'0"). If the AI were intelligent enough to make the Jenner association and go with it, why did it not process the Vick/Mexico association in the same way and report the precise result?

Siri answers the question by citing the height of Michael Vick. Again the source is Wolfram Alpha.

A Google search in a desktop browser also displays answer boxes for Michael Vick, not just typical search results. Same with Bruce/Caitlyn.

Bing...which I assume is Cortana's source...gets Bruce/Caitlyn but not Vick/Mexico. It could be that Google and/or Wolfram's AI is better (not sure what overlap there is there) or it could simply be that Bing's is tuned to not do the same thing for nicknames.

I couldn't tell you for certain whether or not humans or machines are entering the connections in cases like this (famous nicknames and name changes). But it would not surprise me in the least to learn that machine AI is doing it successfully. I think I would be surprised to learn that it cannot and SJWs have to enter this stuff.

75. SirHamster - How convenient. The machines did it! And of course we've got to respect a machine's judgement call - aspie idiot that it is.

I do hope you know I was being sarcastic with my last line. I no more believe that Bruce Jenner is a woman then I believe that Obama is a great president.

To me, this means that the specific question related to height, as with the Siri case, is a specially programmed association that was intentionally inserted into whatever algorithm or database they're using.

These types of answers delivered via Siri (Wolfram) and via Google answer boxes only cover certain things. It's not so much that someone is directing the software to make these name associations. Rather, separate software is gathering and organizing common facts and statistics about certain classes of people and things.

Example: I just asked Siri "What color shirt did Bruce Jenner wear in the Olympics?" That's not a common statistic gathered about athletes, so I correctly guessed that Wolfram would not have the information organized to deliver a direct answer. Siri returned web results and did not substitute the name. The web results were specific to "Bruce Jenner" as was Siri's response which was basically "here's some stuff about Bruce Jenner."

That little test, along with Vick/Mexico on Siri/Wolfram, makes me think the machines did this, not the SJWs. If a human SJW were to do this I would think the substitution would be front loaded, i.e. any question about "Bruce Jenner" would result in a search on "Caitlyn Jenner".

No one outside of Wolfram and Google know for sure.

Et tu, Cortana? I was also "corrected." Cortana also uses Wolfram Alpha for results, though. It might be Alpha, not the voice interfaces.

An easy way to understand the mental illness of transsexuality is to consider someone who changes their own name. We've all known someone who goes and changes their name for no good reason, and we've all known that person was positively nuts.

And the name change is usually not something like going from "Joe" to "Joanna". No, it's always going to some weirdly-spelled name like "Siobhan" that people have trouble pronouncing, and that often is androgynous.

Ultimately it's cruel to let the mentally ill act out their delusions and not do everything we can to help them back to reality.

I would not be surprised if once all the sound and fury dies down, and "Caitlyn" starts to disappear down the memory hole, that "Bruce" will make a stunning, unexpected return, to screams of outrage from the SJW's, and the massive publicity that this attention-whore craves more than life itself.

For the record, I would not have intervened unless I was carrying Sabre Red (likely the best OC for an enclosed space.) Going H2H with an 18 year old on Full Freakout who has a blade is something I'd do ONLY for those on my "list." (Of course, carrying--much less deploying---a gun on the DC Metro would be courting a life-altering situation...again, something I'd only do for those on my "list.")

At most, he's a transvestite with a (possibly) a boob job, which I thought was a subgenre in porn: "the shemale."

I still think this is all a "blow off top" in defining deviancy down, and like all manic 5th waves will be swiftly retraced once the reversal occurs.

I got my windshield fixed the other day. A piece of gravel had hit it and produced three small cracks.

The guy I used to fix it had been on the same street corner for 16 years. All he does are crack repairs, no window replecements. He did a good job.

I told him about the *ordeal I went through to find a place to do the repair. Once he finished fixing the crack he started talking about search engine optimization. It sounded like it was a side job for him. His windshield repair website was top of the list or close to it in every search he did on his phone regardless of city used in the search.

The one bit of useful info I got out of him though had to do with number of links to his site. The more links you have the farther up the search returns you show up.

In light of this it seems to me that it is quite possible for one or a group of people to game Bruce Jenner search results; maybe even Bruce Jenner himself or a company hired to do so.



*I had done a bit of web searching with Duck Duck Go and mapping with Google Earth in order to find this guy. I was looking for mobile repair companies but finding somewhere close would be ok too.

The mobile repair companies wanted to replace the whole windshield. Not gonna happen.

Then the first two places I went to closest to where I lived and/or worked weren't actually there. They were pure web presences with bogus street addresses.

Not for the SJWs. It might be accurate, but they don't believe in accuracy. It wouldn't rewrite history with the lie that he was always Caitlyn, never really Bruce; and that's why they've made him a cause célèbre.
