Vice Vs Naomi: Women, Men, World Community And The Future Of AI
I support Naomi in this issue and always have, and that has nothing to do with her appearance or attractiveness whatsoever. Much as there has long been a stigma associated with Women who step outside of their boundaries, there has long been a stigma attached to Women who are deemed visually socially attractive who exhibit any form of confidence, intelligence or self-reliance. As if it is society's role to oppress someone based upon their gender or their attractiveness. The stereotypes associated with either are moulds that hinder many Women and not as a result of Men.
Perhaps with the outcome of this situation and the overwhelming support for Naomi Wu, Vice will learn to act responsibly with the power of the media that it does possess.
Perhaps with Naomi's future success, more Women of the world over will be courageous enough to step into the public eye promoting their own prowess with technology, the arts or whatever it is they may choose by themselves or beside Men and other Women or even Children.
The internet is a world stage of sorts where everyone should feel welcome to contribute. One concept that is interesting to note is that a future AI will get its first impressions of us from the entirety of the internet, for that will likely be its first long term memory. As a child, that will be its first impression of its parents.
