A tall, slight girl with long, messy purple hair.
She wears a pair of thick, green cut-epoxy glasses; the lenses flicker with glowing symbols.
She has a shaved patch on the left side of her head, with a protruding twist-lock electrical connector.

my girlfriend: shitposts

self-care bot but it just posts stuff like "have you tried being a real person today? or did you retreat behind your collection of signs for another day of siege?"

Q: I've been sleeping in a cardboard box, spending every dollar at the liquor shop, and even though I know I haven't got a lot, I'll try to give you love until the day you drop.

A: I've been training like a Pavlov dog, let my independence out to take a hike, all you got to do is activate my bell and I'll fetch you anything you like

I feel like there's an entire interesting thesis that needs to be explored about how/why the ideas of 'logic' vs 'computation' got falsely separated into two worlds *because of class/gender gaps in the lived practice of science*.

Not even joking. This is a serious research proposal.

ie, that "logicians" were high-status and usually men, while mere "computation" was seen as a very low-status task, given to women (and then machines), and so logicians struggled for decades to see a link between.
