This arrived in my inbox this morning:
In general, I don’t mind getting deals and recommendations emails from you, because you know my shopping history and my wish list and so you can easily present me with more interesting books than I have time to read. Having too many books is a problem, but it’s my problem and it’s a good problem to have.
However, can you stop sending me arbitrary gender-normative ones for father’s day and mother’s day? You really know nothing about my parents, so unlike the emails targeted at me, these ones are just annoying, boring, and irrelevant.
Thanks for listening and have a fantastic day!
(I sent them such an email, but got a reply saying “This is an automated response, but it contains information that should help answer your questions.” Obviously, it did not address my concerns. More about this in a later post.)
I have a new blog. If you were hoping this blog would actually have content on it, because you really enjoy my rants and ideas and so on, you can check out my old blog, Obfuscatism. To be quite honest, this blog may well end up being full of similar rants, but I recently purchased this domain name and wanted to start over.
PS: to anyone who is here to follow my Uberman journey, the next post will be about that.
