the fact that it’s basically impossible to opt out of society and do your own thing is a good sign that something is wrong with it
a lot of things would be improved if they were opt-in instead of opt-out
gender, society, social norms…
Social norms are already opt-in, but in the kind of way that makes to regret not opting in
@DialMforMara oh yeah, absolutely
it’s "sure, you don’t *have* to do it, but don’t you think that’s strange? are you sure it’s better that way? look at all those people doing the thing that you’re not doing, they’re happy! are you sure you’re not being some kind of… weirdo? uh, is it okay if i take your rights away? no? haha well funny thing-"
