I checked my Google photos…all my selfies were moved to a porn folder I had titled “Assholes”.

Nothing. Her self image is a product of her emotional development through parenting and the influences of the people around her.

Photos and google algorithms are objects. They don’t “do” anything to make people feel a certain way.

I"m not arguing it won’t impact her, because most teenagers have poor emotional development and self-esteem. This kind of thing wouldn’t impact my self-esteem one fucking bit.

I’m really glad, you sound nicely grounded. So just to clarify, you’re a young black woman, right?
