Some guidelines to help this space be a positive experience for everyone:
As always with the Avocado, don’t feel compelled to share beyond your comfort level.
Anyone who identifies as female, or who was socialized female/AFAB/otherwise has firsthand experience with the issues being discussed, is welcome to post. If you identify as cis-male, we ask that you please set your participation to “lurk” mode, unless otherwise explicitly invited to participate further (i.e. if we did an AMA kind of thread). I’m sure there’s plenty to be gleaned just by reading! (New Guideline, please take note) This includes upvotes, we ask cis-men to keep their upvotes to commenters who voluntarily add “+up” to their comments and only those comments.
Please do your best to be mindful of others’ experiences when commenting or posing questions for the group. The female identity is Legion and contains multitudes, and not everyone who has experience with being treated as female by society identifies as female. Furthermore, racial and ethnic identities, sexual orientation, and many other factors can color how one experiences their gender identity on a day-to-day basis.
Optional discussion prompt: Co-workers and work politics
Many of the regulars on this thread have been reading my rants / vents about starting back to work and a teaching assistant in my classroom that I have difficulty managing. And I thank all of you for listening and your supportive upvotes and comments.
I’m wondering about your experiences!
What sorts of co-workers do you work with? What kind of people do you prefer to work with? How do your “office” politics bear out in your day to day experience with work? Do you have a boss or co-worker from hell?
