I remember listening to a story, probably on Escape Pod but possibly on Lightspeed, about a near future in which ubiquitous machine-generated gendered advertisements, crueler than anything that could be designed by a human, destroying people's self confidence to make them receptive to advertisers' products. A woman decides to go after the machine distributing the ads. Does anyone remember this story?

I also asked this question on Science Fiction and Fantasy Stack Exchange [https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/216266/podcast-story-about-woman-wanting-to-destroy-machine-distributing-emotionally-de].

Thanks.
