re: popular conception of surveillance Show more
I see people putting tape over their laptop cameras and it makes me worry if us “techies” have done a good job explaining the ramifications of big data collection.
I ask why they put up tape and people say they find it creepy that they could be being watched. but “creepy” implies an unknown threat, which is misleading— we have a clear picture of all the ways this harvesting is dangerous
honestly, too many folks are worried about a human watching them change clothes through their webcam when they should be worried about an AI deciding they should pay more for insurance because they have family members who post about being sick on facebook.
we’re not being watched, we’re being weaponized
lightning hot take re: dating trans people Show more
I often see trans folks mention as a caveat that “it’s okay if you’re cis and only want to date cis people”
and I recognize that is a pragmatic response to the world we live in but it also… may not be true
like, if your primary consideration as to whether you’d date someone is what kind of junk they have… that might be invalid? idk

also when I went to japan I realized that in other parts of the world they let employees sit at the cash register and like, that’s such a good idea? I much prefer knowing the people I’m interacting with aren’t in pain from standing all day
retail workers, anticapitalism Show more
I was just at a subway and the employee there had a single earpod in their left ear.
and honestly? it felt so nice that neither of us had to pretend that 100% of their mental energy needed to be focused on me. retail employees, do more of this please
