Introducing Citoyen “City” Coldson, a young black teenager making his way through the American South, the story presents us with an exploration of contemporary youth voices, confused identities, and the power and potential of satrical humor to bridge what might seem impossible relations. We see City’s struggles and his attempts to relate to a world that doesn’t always understand nor relate to his point of view, as he toys with his sexuality and various gender and sexuality constructions in an effort to make sense of himself and his environment. Through this book, one can’t help but to wonder if it’s more than just a story and if it’s reflective of City’s real life. This introduction was made by Ai and I feel it’s good writing but doesn’t really mirror me and my way or writing at all it did what I wanted which was to create an introduction with my comments throughout the novel. I feel AI altogether shouldn’t be taught in school because it’s just lazy, but it helps me so to each their own. I feel a student using it and a teacher teaching it is too different things. But with some alterations, it can be edited enough that it looks like you wrote it.

I agree with you that AI-generated content often doesn’t accurately reflect the voice of the writer, however, I have to disagree with you in your statement that it shouldn’t be taught at schools. It has its uses for both students and teachers and while it isn’t the best when it comes to creating written content, it is very good at generating image content. I commend you on staying open to the opinions of others, as seen by your statement of “to each their own.”

I actually haven’t thought about the fact that AI doesn’t reflect the voice of the writer using it. That’s such a good point, but I do think that AI is very good at creating academic writing and ideas. You can always use the words or sentences that the AI generates, while including your own writer’s voice. I think AI can be lazy, but when not abused, it can be more resourceful than lazy.

I completely agree, Ai makes students lazy, even though it can be helpful and convenient. It truly does depend on whos using AI and their intentions to do so. I would have loved to read more about your perspective on how AI impacts the quality of your work. Overall good analysis!
