Spot-on

Currently I’m struggling with the fact that what one needs is not just the ability to say “Fuck you”, but the ability to keep saying it for years and years on end, through ups and downs and uncertainties, in the knowledge that mostly what you get in return for this is the opportunity to keep having to say “Fuck you” for the rest of your life.

I don’t know where that struggle will take me, right now.

I'm not a woman, but that's still how I feel in being in tech.

Damn, wish I had an answer for that one. Because that is how it is, for many people in underrepresented groups. I'm sorry that it's that way for you too. I am doing what I can think of to help.
