[I]n the case of big tech companies like Facebook, the
way power is structured means that you too are being
treated like a feminized, powerless individual
regardless of who you are. Facebook assumes that you,
its user, aren’t as smart as Facebook’s engineers, that
its algorithms know what is best for you, that you
won’t notice or care if your privacy is violated, and
that even if it violates your privacy or shares your
content without asking you it will get away with it.
Facebook is the Man, and you are his servant,
regardless of your gender or race. On Facebook, we are
all women, making ourselves respectable in hopes that
society will be nicer to us than it is to others.
