neurotypicals are always making things so complicated. like okay, you want me to work? why do you need my personal social media info for that? why do you need me to socialize with people in specific sanctioned ways during my breaks? why do you need me to wear specific clothes? why is *doing the work* not enough???
you’d think capitalism would want to emphasize productivity as much as possible and get rid of all of that fluff but… i guess not?
@winvi i think it mostly has to do with forcing you into a certain way of thinking and operating which is much more insidious
@Stevarow that’s what i was thinking too
get rid of it all
@winvi physical and emotional conditioning afoot?
go up and give it the damn boot
@winvi for real though i worked for a news media company and they didn’t even ask about social media pages. why would anyone ever need them besides trying to find ways to control you????
@Stevarow yeah i’m sure it’s not a HUGELY widespread thing (yet?) but i have heard of it happening in places
it is bad
@socks i suppose so! personally if i have to work 8 hours a day i’d rather just… do that and not have to worry about socializing, unless i have something in common with the others that we could bond over?
besides, it’s usually very superficial stuff, and i have no interest in wasting energy on small talk with people i may not even like, y’know?
@socks yeah i don’t mean 0 social interaction, of course
just… not super formalized interaction? actually genuine stuff?
This would depend a lot on the type of job, wouldn't it?
