I am plagued by a question.
As a trans person, is it better to be seen accurately?
Or not seen at all...
How does the algorithm see me? How does it guess what I'm feeling?
Is there such a thing as a neutral expression? Can it tell the difference between a smile caused by a joke and one that masks rage?
Do I want it to be able to tell the difference?
To be unknowable to a system may be as liberating as it is dangerous.
