Cultural Shift

Just would like to leave you with this tweet I just saw.

Diversity in media and entertainment empowers everyone for generations to come.

Confessions Of A Former Misogynist

A worthwhile read.

If I saw a blog or comment by a feminist that challenged my world view, my anger button would be pressed and, rather than responding rationally, I’d lash out with gendered insults, all while completely failing to empathise with them.

Women In Tech: The Book

Anyone following me on this blog for a while might have already noticed that I’m a feminist, ally, and supporter of equality for women in [any] industry.

So. To that end, here’s a quick shout-out for a Kickstarter I just stumbled upon, that I consider worth while. It only has a few more days left, and still needs a few more cash-units to succeed. It features some of the tech-worlds strongest women, all of which battling a constant fight against cultural bias, where the general opinion is that women don’t quite fit in the industry. I like how, in the video, the founder, Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack, says that she doesn’t believe she’s fighting against a war on women (or some such thing), but rather the bias and general conception I just mentioned.

It’s an honest statement. It’s optimistic. It’s not a battle-cry against men, like it sometimes is made out to be.

Consider helping out and show your support for Women In Tech.

The Rambling Podcast 01 — What The Hell Am I Doing?

As a continued effort to create more and diverse content, I’ve decided that the written word is not enough.

No. You all need to be allowed to bask in the glory of my smooth, silky, sexy, GERMAN ACCENT.

To that end, I’ve recorded a podcast, where I’ll talk about whatever comes to mind.

This episodes features a little bit about me, my stance on feminism (I am one), what I think about female characters and this silly idea of reboots. I also talk about the Writer Emergency Fiasco, and you can hear my parrots screeching in the background as if the house was on fire.

NSFW. I swear. It’s candid. It’s raw. I even slap my thigh at one point because I got too excited.

Enjoy.
