NO and THANK YOU for being right there with me.
Geek girl con, I am in you! #geekgirlcon2017
So, this is a thing. I have talked about Accountability for the male members of Geek Culture here, before. I have on occasion named names, but even more frequently I have alluded to incidents without directly naming people.
A lot of other women do this, too. While calling for accountability, we are not making sure that the men who need to be called out, are. A lot of the time, the allusion is…
do you ever sit and think about your female ancestors and like how many of them endured forced marriages, sexual abuse, physical violence and complete deprivation of education and autonomy and suffered silently for literally centuries. going through pregnancies and child birth without modern medicine, having multiple children and watching most of them die before the age of five because that was just the way of life back then? and ultimately you are a product of their pain? i think about them a lot and then i think about how many women continue to share their reality in this current year
