@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters Compulsory sterilization is an egregious violation of bodily autonomy and harkens back to the US' Progressive-era eugenics movement associated with racist and nativist elements. There is a significant history of compulsory sterilization... (cont)
@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters ...in Latinx communities, against Latina women. Puerto Rico and LA were found to have had large amounts of their female population coerced into sterilization procedures without quality and necessary informed consent nor full awareness of the procedure. (cont)
@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters Between the span of the 1930s to the 1970s, nearly one-third of the female population in Puerto Rico was sterilized. The procedure was so common that it was often referred to solely as “la operación." (cont)
@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters The North Carolina Eugenics Board, from 1929 to 1974, had a disproportionate number forced/coerced sterilizations among black females, with almost all being poor.
@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters African Americans made up just over 1% of California's population, they accounted for at least 4% of the total number of sterilization operations conducted by the state between 1909 and 1979.
@KekTheSnek @BDaveWalters America has a frightening and startingly recent history of ethical violations.

We all know its bad out there, but I wasn't expecting violation of the mother f-ing Nuremberg Code bad.

Hey @PrimeVideo!
As a person who watches Horror almost exclusively and curates their Watch History on your platform very carefully, I was dismayed to find the following recommended categories flooding my Prime Video feed:
• Baby and kids
• Educational kids TV
• Kids and family TV
• Kids and family movies
• Original Kids series
• Top TV for kids and family

As well as having ONLY KIDS SHOWS in a section "Prime movies we think you'll like."
I have tried "Hiding' these movies one by one on the glacially slow interface, which is a time and labor-intensive process, but like the mythical hydra, for every TV Show or Movie I hide, more spring up in its place.
