Hacker News article A psychologist who works with young developers is now facing backlash after she posted a tweet in support of a popular new psychology-based coding system called ’emotivational programming’.
The Tweet, which she posted alongside a picture of a person’s face, was widely criticised for being disrespectful to a number of prominent psychologists, and even a number who were not psychologists themselves.
The Tweet caused an uproar on Twitter and was widely mocked by those who commented on it.
The psychology professor behind the tweet, who asked to remain anonymous, said she had received threats and abuse for making the Tweet.
The professor is not the only one to be targeted by the criticism.
She also has her own Twitter account and a blog, which has received over 3,000 hits.
But despite the backlash she is also facing criticism for her decision to make the Tweet, in which she has also used a picture from her own face to support the new software.
She was also criticised for using the phrase ’emotionally-focused programming’ in her Tweet.
‘This has led to an avalanche of abuse directed at me and my employer, Dr David Risley, and I have received death and rape threats and insults from people I work with,’ the psychologist wrote in her tweet.
‘It has also led to people posting things on my Twitter profile that they consider offensive, racist or anti-Semitic.
I have been the target of hateful, threatening and abusive messages since my tweets began.’
‘It is very important to me that I get my points across.’
Emotivations are a new form of coding, and are often used by young developers who need to find ways to make their work more interesting, expressive or engaging.
The new software has received widespread support from developers who say it is a valuable and helpful tool for young developers.
The software is a powerful tool for building interactive applications, but it also comes with some challenges.
Dr Risleys software has also been criticised for having a ‘high level of dependencies’ and for having too many dependencies, which can cause problems with performance.
The latest version of the software is not available for developers to download yet, but the latest version is said to be stable and works well.
In the Tweet Dr Riesleys tweets that the software has many of the traits of a good social-engineering tool, and the ‘toxicity’ of the criticisms are a result of that.
‘We are not psychologists, but our goal is to create tools that allow young developers to be more creative and less reactive.
That is what Emotivist Programming is about,’ she said.
‘Emotivators are not a ‘thing’, but a skill.’
But Dr Rises has faced criticism for the Tweet too.
‘I was not trying to hurt anyone.
It was not meant to be offensive.
I just wanted to show support for the Emotivism movement.
It’s about the ability of young people to connect and share ideas.
I’m also a passionate advocate for empathy,’ she wrote in the Tweet that was widely condemned.
Emotives have faced backlash in the past for taking part in protests, with the famous actress Susan Sarandon calling Emotiva ‘disgusting’.
But Dr Jisleys comments about the Emotionless Programming have received criticism as well, including from a number psychologists who are not involved in the new technology.
‘People think that a lot of young psychologists are saying these things in a way that would be considered misogynistic.
That’s not the case.
It is very, very, important to us that we get our points across,’ Dr Rives said.
Dr Jises work includes research into cognitive neuroscience and psychology, and has published numerous papers in professional journals.
The psychologist also runs a non-profit organisation called the Psychology Today Foundation, which aims to improve communication in the field.
‘There’s a lot that I love about Emotivia and the project.
I really feel for the community.
I think they’re very concerned about this technology and how it can help them in the long run,’ Dr Jiscys co-founder, Sarah Osterloh, told The Independent.
‘What I’m most proud of is that we’ve been able to create this community around Emotive, and that’s very exciting.
We want to continue to do this work, and continue to encourage other people to get involved and work together.’
But despite Dr Rikes efforts to keep the Emotonivative project as ‘neutral’, the backlash is growing.
‘The whole point of Emotival is to make it easier for people to communicate and work with one another.
It does a lot to help young people learn about coding, but there are a lot more
