"Imagine that you wanted to train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics, and, more specifically, on age progression (e.g. how people are likely to look as they get older). Ideally, you'd want a broad and rigorous data set with lots of people's pictures. It would help if you knew they were taken a fixed number of years apart—say, 10 years."

Personally I think that talking about it as much as possible, publishing about it, and normalising it is the preferable approach. Doing it in the terms OP has done; speaking about how much the world fucks us over, how much large corporations are parasitic on society as a whole and how we are actually more ethical for stealing from them than for giving them more money, seems to me the way to go.

Doing so will make everyone believe you are a disgrace to society.

Being a disgrace to the garbage world that currently exists is only a sign that you might be getting things right. Having the conversations with people about it where you take the time to explain this might be the beginnings of creating a world we desire.

It's quite hard to come up with the right language in medical contexts. I have some friends doing queer health research and it becomes quite complicated.

I'd be interested to hear cases where this knowledge makes a difference and why.

With sex being a spectrum itself, I wonder how that affects medical practice.

I am not on your continent and $30 is no small amount for me, but that sounds like a nice option for others.

My main concern with security culture is my voice though. It is very distinctive in terms of local accents / ethnicity etc.
