dna testing has always seemed like such a dumb and dangerous idea: willingly giving up ones biometric data in exchange for statistics that may or may not be correct to fabricate some sense of inherited "belonging". the cost of admission is more than just the fee to the testing company; it's a ticket into databases both state and corporate, further granting them more and more levels of governance. i wonder what level of intrusion, exploitation, and subjugation it's going to take for masses to actually make an about face on their admission of intimate details to these companies? deportations based on animoji's on an instagram story? years of incarceration due to a miscalculated dna match up at a murder scene? hacking that turns into serial killing? it almost feels like these intrusive technologies are just a troll competition on the side of tech companies to see the limits to which people will indulge their narcissism and 'ease of life' in exchange for any level of autonomy.
