ROK #education ministry prohibits parents from recording classes

Aiming to better protect teachers' rights, the education ministry's new guidelines for #schools and #kindergartens ban parents from recording school classes without #consent.

“On the whole, the #pornography scenes analyzed in this study were aggressive; only 10.2% (n = 31) of scenes did not contain an aggressive act.”
“One of the reasons for the higher rates of aggression in the current study [is] it does not require that the target of the aggression attempt to avoid the harm [since] treating violence or aggression as contingent on target #consent masks the real asymmetries of power”

Interesting line of reasoning:

"We know what you are thinking...

Is this legal? YES- it is totally legal for #phones and #devices to listen to you. That's because consumers usually give #consent when accepting #terms and conditions of software #updates or app #downloads."

How long does it take to say no to sharing any unnecessary data when browsing a web page? 3 minutess and 45 seconds it turns out. A little longer on a phone.

Or, seen from the ones creating this mess: "Consent to tracking and sharing data by not enough time to disagree"

I am really upset to see so many #women of my #generationX jumping to the defense of #RussellBrand, claiming 'these women knew exactly what they were letting themselves in for". Nevermind being a living proof of how slowly #feminism has progressed, they display an understanding of #sexualassault & #consent BELOW the very #legal definitions, ignoring it ain't just PIV (penis in vagina) or not having awakened to marital r*pe law (voted in 1991 in the UK).

It can be easy to create a sexual situation that becomes non-consensual. We need to create a culture of open #communication, caring for each other and vigilance towards our own behaviour. #bisexual #consent #men #sex #sexuality

In the suit filed in the Superior Court of California, San Francisco, Unity Technologies’ former vice president of talent acquisition, Anne Evans, says Riccitiello and other men in management allegedly spoke openly about female employees in a sexual manner and pursued relationships with them. It also alleges incidents in which Riccitiello propositioned Evans and two of her direct reports for sex. On March 2016, [highlighted section] for instance, Riccitiello allegedly asked Evans to join him in Paris to meet with the team located there, and then invited her into his hotel room. After making a reference to his erect penis, Riccitiello allegedly said, “I want to f--- you. I want to throw you down on the bed and f--- you.” Evans then asked Riccitiello to grab a bottle of wine from the hotel bar, allowing her to leave the room.

I had to read this a few times before I understood what was being said, but yes, you are reading it right. She's suggesting that we should not teach children about consent, because /that/ leads them to be exploited, whereas teaching them to unquestionably obey adults protects them from exploitation. These people are so incredibly f*ed up.

From the article:

During the session, Schenkoske strongly objected to the concept of "consent" being included in sex ed curriculum. She argued that teaching kids about consent is counterproductive and leaves children vulnerable to sexual exploitation. “[K]ids are often taught to be obedient." Schenkoske said. “And to teach kids consent is a shift away from really strongly teaching, it's okay to have those really strong boundaries and to say no, because not always do kids have that faculty to strongly say no.”

I posted this as a reply a few days ago, but it deserves a top-level post.

If your #UI has a "yes" option, but no permanent "no" option, you have failed at both basic #UserExperience (#UX) and basic #consent. Either should be a release-blocking bug.

It's not enough to just have a "no" option either. There's a number of considerations here, and you need to pass all of them.

Is your "yes" a big button and "no" is a tiny link or in a different part of the UI? You still fail. And now you also have a #DarkPattern in your UI, so you've managed to make it worse. Your "no" option must always be at least as prominent as "yes" and they must be clearly visually (and accounting for visual processing differences, like colorblindness) distinct.

Can I revoke consent as easily as it was given? If not, you fail. If you're going to ask me to confirm revoking consent, you have to ask me to confirm giving consent.

Is "yes" the default option? Fail. If giving consent is worth it to your users, they will choose "yes". Assume privacy and user-friendliness, let the end user decide to give that up.

Do you have a "remind me later" option? Not "maybe later", "remind me later". Your users need to be able to say "yes I want to do this now", "I want to do this but can't right now", and "no, don't ask again". This MAY be less prominent than "yes" and "no", but probably should not be.

Do you provide clear and prominent options, not in legalese but in clear everyday language without relying on technicalities or obscure meanings, for users to make a fully informed decision? If it’s not #InformedConsent you don’t have proper consent and you still fail.

Does giving consent collect the bare minimum information, then send the bare minimum information, needed for functionality? Your app may need to collect specific information because that’s what’s available, but it should never collect more than is actually needed for the stated purpose. And everything must be processed client-side to remove as much extra information as possible before sending it along. If the data your app needs to collect, or the data your app sends out, ever changes, you have to assume you don’t have consent anymore and ask for consent again.

Does refusing or revoking consent limit functionality more than absolutely necessary? Here’s a hint: you probably don’t actually need a blanket worldwide royalty-free license to use, remix, modify, and distribute all your users’ content just to let them upload things you show to their followers. Even images and videos.

Does the terms of use limit your usage of what the user is consenting to? This comes back to informed consent, your user must consent to specific things. If you want to do fewer things later, go ahead. If you ever want to do more things, or start doing things you had consent for but stopped doing, you need fresh informed consent.

If all this seems hard, you’re probably doing things wrong already. This is all easy if you’ve been putting users first, and if your users come first you’ve already been doing these things anyway!

I really enjoyed this article discussing the general concept of #canine #consent:

"Dog Consent: Yes, It’s Real, Here’s Why We Should Care"

"Dogs should, for example, be able to choose if, when, and who pets them. And they should be able to withdraw this consent when and if they wish to do so."


Pat, Pet, Pause: a dog consent test

    Step 1. Pat your knee or thighs in order to invite the dog to come over to you for pets. If the dog doesn’t approach, do not continue. If the dog doesn’t approach, the exercise is already over, and the dog has clearly communicated that he does not want to interact with you right now. 

    Step 2: Assuming he comes over to you, reach out your hand to pet the dog on a non-threatening area of the body, such as the chest (most dogs don’t like being petted on top of the head – it’s quite intimidating having someone reach up and over your head).

    Step 3: Pet the dog gently for a few seconds.

    Step 4: Pause your petting and float your hand a few inches away from the dog (or take your hand away completely).

    Step 5: Watch and see what the dog does. Does he look at you in a request for more? Does he lean towards you or push himself against your hand? These are all signs of consent for more pets! Conversely, if the dog looks away, gets up to leave, or does nothing at all, he’s not interested in getting scritches.

The good news: Zoom now states they will not use "audio, video, or chat content" for AI training without end user consent.

The bad news: Zoom does not understand consent.

As with most big tech companies, Zoom seems to regard an unwieldy and unread set of policies as some magical talisman that indicates valid consent.

They are wrong.

⭐ Consent is, among other things, an ongoing understanding of what you are agreeing to and an appreciation of what that agreement entails.

"#Consent isn't homework. It's not the boring part or the legal disclaimer. It's not the vegetables you have to eat to get to dessert. Consent is the pulsing electricity that will pass between us with enough power to blow the bulbs of a city." #Kink

there is a lot to chew on in this excellent article.

@simonbs @gruber and they didn’t have to. Cookie banners are intentionally designed to get people to click “accept”. The _ethically_ correct thing is to not collect identifying data at all until it is required for your user, then ask. Instead we get this. I spend part of my professional life helping companies suck less in this area. It’s an uphill struggle. Most don’t _want_ to understand. Easier to throw a cookie banner at it and pretend you’ve acted ethically. #privacy #consent

I do not consent to my posts being sent to servers operated by the Meta company or any of its affiliates or subsidiary companies.

#DoNotConsent #Meta

I do not consent to Meta's Terms of Service, and I explicitly refuse them permission to read, transfer, or do anything with any data I put online.

#ActivityPub #Interoperability does not mean #consent.

@weirdwriter I feel like a lot of people are wrapped up in the idea of big numbers at all costs. It is why bot account sellers still exist for "big social".

#Consent and #Community are far more important to many people. I don't know why they are expending so much energy railing against and disparaging admins that don't want to connect to known bad-actors.

Just do what you want to do dudes and let others do as they want. I don't think anyone has tried to push #fedipact on them.

"This weekend, 17 of the 20 #NHS trusts that were using #Meta Pixel confirmed they had pulled the #tracking tool from their websites."

It's 2023 and:

"Eight issued apologies to patients. Multiple trusts said they (...) were not aware that they were sending #patient data to #Facebook."

🧐 Let's see:

A $20 Million fine on 2021's revenue of $16.28 Billion comes to ... not even worth calculating. And likely not much of a deterrent.

(FTA: "the $20 million fine represents 0.03% of Microsoft's total revenue")

CW as #Consent

#NHS #dataBreach: trusts shared patient details with #Facebook #meta without #consent

Reading this makes my blood boil. "We didn't know..." "we didn't think that.." Wake up! If you let #surveillanceCapitalism on your site, this is exactly what you can expect them to do to your users. "But we want to know our ad worked" is no excuse. You're buying seeds from a lumberjack.

Meme I quickly made about responses to the ongoing discussion about #searchability on the #fediverse. As a #contentCreator and #activist for #toplessEquality--which gets me banned repeatedly on all mainstream platforms even when I DO censor out my heinous female nipples (see for receipts!), a primary motivator for me to use platforms like #mastodon is to be able to spread the word about #GenderEquality anti- #censorship among more potential supporters. But the lack of #searchability on Masto makes this very hard. I'm dependent on existing followers to boost my posts so others following -them- can see it, etc, but for whatever reason very few of my existing followers do. I also can't really find posts by other people outside of my instance and the people I'm following--like I've never seen another post about #vidcon besides my own, so I have no idea if anyone else on the fediverse is even messaging about it.

#Consent is of course a cornerstone of the fediverse experience, including someone consenting to whether or not they want a certain kind of content to pop up in their feeds. And having #contentWarnings and #altText encouraged if not required by most instances makes this place leagues more of a safe space for marginalized and/or traumatized people in a way that they cannot experience on mainstream platforms. But this can be very time-consuming and cumbersome, both remembering to add CWs and Alt Text to everything, coming up with custom text every time, and also on the end of it--when you follow enough people (or check out the public timelines) pressing "show content" over and over and over on each post gets REALLY annoying. But again, I'd rather have that tedium then have to subject myself to content that I find really triggering (for me, it's pretty much anything to do with kids and #gunViolence...I live in America where my kids are at risk of getting shot every day they go to school, and while I want to stay informed, I also need some mental prep before I look/read too much about it). And I know for others who have even more triggers, especially around things that the majority of people wouldn't find triggering (like pictures of food), then again, the fediverse is leagues better than the "normal" sites.

But back to searchability, as a veteran Twitter user (I cold-turkey quit in November, don't worry) I am well versed in how dealing with reactionary bullies who can take a tweet out of context and share it with their thousands if not millions of followers to dunk on you all at once. It can also open you up to a lot of haters in general, who will search out content like yours to leave hateful comments (like the comment sections of my Tiktok/Instagram/Youtube posts any time I mention #gunControl ...) BUT, even for content that I WANT people to find--primarily my topless equality content--again, it only shows up if followers of mine boost it to their own followers, and that's a very small niche. The only way we can ever hope to normalize gender-equal topless rights is if there are enough people putting pressure on social media sites and lawmakers to change their policies, and that requires a groundswell of support that's just not possible in isolated communities like Masto currently is. So I would LOVE some more methods for searchability, for people outside of my instance to find my content--and for me to find theirs.

I'm not a programmer, so I don't know how difficult this would be in reality. But the solution seems to me to be creating a searchable index, but making it opt-in only--accoounts like mine can opt-in to be found by people searching for #topless (who thereby might be influenced to think about topless equality, not just searching for porn), while others who want to keep their content protected (maybe searchable among their followers who they already trust, but not to the world wide web) can stay in the default opt-out status until they choose otherwise.

I've seen a few mentions of projects in the works LIKE this, but haven't seen one that's all the way working yet. If there's one that's mostly in working order, please recommend it! I'd love to give it a try.
