Twitter is for big laughs, entertainment (both yours and mine), and adventure commentary. I work @happycog, formerly @revmsg.
The cool tech girl is a toxic myth, she helps men feel safe in their sexism. She enables the persistent and perpetual gender discrimination in our field. She’s hurting you, and me, and she needs to fuck right off already.
If you care, you need to care all the time. Not on Hallmark holidays. Not when you fuck up and someone notices. And not when you hire your first female partner. All. The. Time.
Tech is full of white male elites, and without people of color both present and occupying positions of power and decision-making, our future will only continue to get more white.
