This just happened and I  thought some may get a kick out of it.. So im alone tomorrow and I was shopping on Amazon for some new overnight present for River. as usual I set my filter to Plus size. after shopping for a few hours in the Big Girl section I gave up out of frustration.  FF ahead a little and Amazon just popped up a new Suggestion for me..  A mini under desk exercise Bike.. I never get anything but womens clothes on my private amazon account so. Should I be offended ?   lol.. Silence Cheers RC

@river IDK what to think, except it now never shocks me what products and how their algo's decide to peddle them & when. I am glad to see you've resilience & some humor over it but personally I find these kinds of pushes by them a lil bit intrusive. We all know what we want & how to ask or look for it... Best to you River! K  🙃

@river I've been thinking of doing just that. I've been curious about that and other practicalities of using my femme name.

@river They do come up with some interesting suggestions. The latest one I had from ali express was

2024 New Assembled PortaPack H2M Signature Edition With HackRF One 6GHz SDR 10.00MHz TCXO Mayhem 2.0.1 Firmware

I have no idea what that even is! Although it is 30% off & I do love a bargain, should I, shouldn't I.....

We live in the time of omni-surveillance. I have struggled with slicing the ball off the tee since taking up golf five years ago so went for a lesson at the local driving range. One piece of advice I got was to take my stance then draw back my right foot a couple of inches (some centimetres) and this has made a huge improvement. 

I mentioned this to one of the greenskeepers the other day and the next time I looked at Youtube, there must have been half a dozen videos on "drawing the foot back".

Ha Ha, yes, River, my Amazon and eBay suggestions are full of dresses, heels et al.

@river YES!!!  You should be offended - that was totally disgraceful!!!  Just wtf do they think they are doing- yes, it's all down to an algorithm somewhere in the depths of a computer program, but that is NO excuse!  I was never a fan of Jeff Bezos, but that is really, really wrong - I always thought that Mackenzie was the good one in that relationship (perhaps why she got out of it?) but now I'm sure...  Holly XXX  (P.S.  I'm trying to lose a few pounds myself - I DO NOT need to have some over-rich idiot hinting at me that that may be what I need...)

@river Hi no you should not be offended. Weight loss products are a big market because of peoples desire to lose weight. We are hammered with weight loss medications and products (some fake) all over the place! Amazons AI bot is responsible for that! They are simply trying to sell products! AI bots are the worst idea yet!

@river No to being offended . It is only going to get worse in years to come. Farce book does it relentlessly. When I search Corvette, my next time I go online with Farcebook, I get blasted with anything Corvette. Just ignore the crap.

By the way: Today Amazon recommended, in addition to bras, a broom and dustpan set, a rotating electric cleaner, some capsules to support intestinal health, paper plates and a USB wall charger. Ha ha ha.

When I first started cross-dressing last year my wife was on holiday in India. Just before she went I put some items in my Amazon wish list. One of them was a bra and another was some condoms which I was going to fill with water as breast forms. My wife was in the bedroom and the Alexa there decided at that moment to announce that an item in my wish list had gone down in price and then named the contraceptives. My wife heard that and thought crap, what do I do now?! She didn't know I was planning to do some cross dressing while she was away so in a panic, I just denied that there were any condoms in my wish list and that it had made a mistake as she obviously thought I was going to sleep with someone else while she was away. On her return, the situation kept coming up now and again and each time I had to continue with the lie and deny any knowledge.

Fortunately, over the next few weeks, I came out as a curious cross dresser and finally admitted that the condoms in the wish list were in fact mine and that I was sorry I lied but I panicked. By that time, I had been wearing women's clothing around the house and instead of being angry, she said she was happy that I wasn't having an affair. All was well in the end, fortunately.

So beware, if you have an Alexa, don't put surreptitious things in your wish list as you never know when it'll grass on you.

@rebeccabaxter I have google home fortunately it does not do that. but I made the mistake the first time I used Amazon of using my regular email which I forgot my wife got my emails.  and  when I finally broke down and decided to buy myself some decent CD stuff I ordered a pile of things all at once. well my wife saw them all in the email.  this was before I told her a few years ago. When she got home she had this playful look that I did not understand.  and asked me what I had planned for the weekend.  I realized she thought it was all for her. so I lied and said I returned it all as I decided it was not her style and bought her something more classy.good thing she did not look at the size as they were way to big for her.. then shortly after I had to tell the truth.  but ya I understand the dilemma.  all worked out for the both of us it would seem . Cheer Thank you for sharing.  Cheers RC

@rebeccabaxter That is exactly why I don't have Alexa in my house! That is the same as putting microphones in your house! Alexa can hear much better then she can speak! My Dish network is as far as I will go! Laugh Loud

@rebeccabaxter Android / Google is always listening, too. Have an open conversation and don't be surprised what turns up in their advertising pushes.
