Though the direction of one’s sexual activity is a matter of choice for a small percentage of adults, the majority of lesbian and gay men become aware that they are somehow “different” from the heterosexual “norm” when they are quite young. This awareness generally occurs in profoundly anti-gay social settings and in spite of a heterosexist society that “proselytises” superiority of heterosexuality and the inferiority of homosexuality. Given the pervasiveness of heterosexual influences (the media, the educational system, countless role models, etc.), the fact that lesbians and gay men succeed in discovering their identities at all provides a strong argument that sexual orientation is not influenced by “proselytising.”

Back in May a couple of friends in Japan started a new project called rrrrrrrroll, using photography to explore beautifully minimalist animations based on objects and people turning on a single axis. (via)

Woman live tweets IBM execs discussing why they don’t hire women, tries not to throw up

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

But wait, there’s more Follow micdotcom

Justice denied?: Civil-justice reform in Italy is pressing—and difficult. The sluggishness of civil justice is a big reason why the Italian economy is still not growing. According to the World Bank’s “Doing Business” survey, it is harder to enforce a contract in Italy than in Haiti and over 100 other countries.

This thing looks like a huge thermos, and it is. By keeping rotavirus and pneumonia vaccines cold for 50 days, it saves kids’ lives. I saw it work perfectly in a rural health outpost with no running water or electricity, just an amazing health worker using technology suited to her needs.

There are coolers that keep sperm and eggs frozen for decades.

Yeah, but those coolers need electricity, something in very short supply in rural Ethiopia. (More than 60 million Ethiopians live outside or urban centers, and most of them—and most of the health centers that serve them—are without power or running water.) There are refrigerators that use propane or gas to keep cool, but propane can be expensive and difficult to keep in steady supply, so these ridiculously efficient Thermoses are (literally) a life-saver.
It’s difficult to overstate the poverty here: Most of the plowing of fields is done with wooden plows drawn by cattle, and there are almost no cars on the roads. (Most people travel by foot or on handmade carts drawn by animals). That Ethiopia has been able to reduce under-5 mortality from 25% to 8% in the past 20 years despite this poverty and a very rural population is a tremendous success story, and with effectively outfitted health posts, that percentage will get even lower—hopefully within the next decade Ethiopia’s child mortality rate will fall below the current world average of 5%.
