If y'all don't like transgender people then you'd better stop using your phone

Literally, almost all phones use ARM processors, and guess who designed the instruction set for the original ARM processor?

Sophie Wilson, a transgender lady (see picture)

I can only aspire to rock that kind of look that she's rocking when I'm older

I've just remembered the Nintendo Switch uses an ARM processor too, so y'all better stop playing Mario too

Yea Breath of the Wild more like Be to the Gone

@roxy Is it just me or is that paragraph in the screenshot deliberately avoiding using her first name or pronouns

@Felthry it's just because it's the latter part of the paragraph I think, and I think it's more formal to refer to someone by their last name in an article than their first (but maybe it is subtle avoidance)

@roxy this adds a whole new dimension to the name CISc

@roxy Nearly all phones and SBCs and TV set top boxes and vehicle embedded controllers

@roxy Not to mention Lynn Conway who developed superscalar execution which is at the core of every modern CPU

@roxy Also electronic music, given the role Wendy Carlos played in helping Moog develop the first commercial synths.

@roxy Wow that's so cool! I never knew about her and she's had a huge impact on my life! I grew up on Acorn, BBC basic and ARM I & II machine code!

@roxy lmao! I truly expected some bigoted fake science about cell phones “causing it” after the first line. :D. Glad to see otherwise.
