I’ve been in work environments where I have felt “othered” for being Latina, for being a woman. I’ve received advances and been denied opportunities.

As a writer, I’m always in danger of being outsourced. It’s nothing new. ChatGPT doesn’t really matter to me in that regard. I have always had that knife above my head. People don’t want to pay writers. They do want the content. That’s always been true.
