I'm not sure whether this is an auto-ethnography, a choose your own adventure, what exactly... but I wrote a piece called "Repository Ouroboros."
I've let it settle for a month and now am posting it:
@guerrillarain I was too, but my parents had to sign some docs for me...

@raye I do my best to keep the ivy near my house in line, but I admire its tenacity and will never pull it up. Well that and I rent, and I think I agree with my landlord on having it. I would have to replace it with something else because he likes non-grass green space.

autism, ifl vs. pfl
If someone needs to continually say 'person' first to remind themselves I *am* a person, I would rather they did that than treat me as less than fully human.
My life experience, however, has taught me that those who don't see me as equally human won't start doing so simply because they change their language.
Moreover, at least when it comes to autism and autistic children especially, PFL often dehumanizes the very real person in favor of an imaginary non-autistic version.
@sophia 😬😬😬😬remember when Alexa heard people talking and randomly sent it out as a message? https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/woman-says-her-amazon-device-recorded-private-conversation-sent-it-out-to-random-contact/755507974
Google admitted that contractors can access recordings made by Assistant, after some of its recordings were leaked.
Been absolutely refusing to use any of these devices for precisely this reason. Google and Amazon have both been very quiet on how data is kept and access to it. The recent NHS direct news, teaming up with amazon to give medical advice, horrified me for exactly this.
Both companies have had data breaches, they should be allowed nowhere near NHS services
