Congratulations on sparking, and building something you can step away from. :) Proud of you, love.
This is awesome. In one fell swoop, you speak the cultural attitude of many men’s view of women in Silicon Valley. You feel completely entitled to behave this way. And you see all behavior toward pursuit of women as basically the same.
Are you able to talk to the females in your life, and ask what they think of your stance…

I can now stop feeling bad about not having skimmed through X’s latest book because I’m too busy testing, redesigning and sharing it with users; writing that article; and meeting those people as I work 3 other jobs to eat and pay rent.
Thank you Gary.

Thank you. You’ve just explained some of why activists have been so incredibly ineffective after the days of MLK and Gandhi. It’s not academic theories that will transform the world — it’s a discipline of the heart and character, not only of the leaders but of those who you are leading.
You’ve inspired me for my next medium article. Thanks.
