the story of lyn conway [View all]

I just found out about this amazing woman.
she worked ai IBM in the 60's. when they found out she was going to tranition they fired her.
she went on to develop the idea that makes th emicrochips in todays cell phones possible.

IBM apologized for firing her in 2020.
she just passed away at teh age og 86

I propose that any transphobe refrain from using any cellphones in case they might "catch the gay" from using a chip designed by a transwoman
