The Divine Comedy of the Tech Sisterhood – Code Like A Girl
"This is a guide to some of the absurd dysfunctions and dynamics you will likely encounter if you embark on a career in tech, and end up in a leadership position with all the naive innocence and drive that you will be different, you will be a great leader, respected by all, and you will change things not just for yourself and your team and but for the industry as a whole, moving the needle on behalf of all the other women out there who look up to you as a role model. Think of every horrible stereotype of software engineers you’ve ever seen on TV — hackers straight out of mom’s basement who can’t lift their eyes from your chest, socially-awkward twenty-something millionaires who get shit-faced in night clubs in San Francisco and convince you of the merits of polyamory, venture capitalists who refuse to shake hands with women for religious or cultural reasons — and somewhere in Silicon Valley, you will find it. If you’re a man and you reply with, “The scent of white musk is distinctive, but what’s really telling is why you would choose to wear a fragrance selected to emulate the natural odor of a male deer attempting to mark his territory and find a mate” you’d get punched in the face. Kyle says with his patient tone, as if he were talking about a site outage rather than a triggering racial issue, “Rather than think about this in terms of one group versus others, I would encourage us to consider that not everyone has had the same opportunities, and that by applying our unconscio..."

Just go see that movie
"The fundamental flaw of film criticism is it doesn’t account for you, the infinitely complex soul that’s watching. That’s not criticism’s fault, and it shouldn’t be even fixed. Rather, the solution is foryou to become the active participant and live in a more enriching personal paradigm. Such as, focusing less on reviews and more on recommendations from friends, random chances (if you can afford to risk money on potentially bad movies), learning about your favorite genres, etc.

And if you really really think something looks good, go see it, EVEN IF the reviews warn you off!!"
