I get “fake geek girl” BS in job interviews. I have skipped applying for programming jobs because the ads promote the “bro-centric company culture,” where it is common to drink beer and no one complains about your naughty sense of humor. I have applied at companies that won’t interview me for the position that I’m qualified for because the type of programming that I do is more typical for guys and this other type over here that I don’t do is more typical for girls; in order to show how inclusive of women they are, they strongly encourage me to apply for [girl job] despite me being grossly overqualified for [boy job that I can’t be interviewed for]. I have gone to interviews where it is made clear to me that I’m the affirmative action candidate, that they were intrigued by my claim to play video games [which I was tested on], and then had the technical interviewer act astounded because during my whiteboarding exercise, I followed a coding standard that prevents a security breach and no other applicants did— and then not gotten the job. I have had jobs where my opinion was dismissed by my superiors who were less qualified than me, who repeatedly interrupted me during demos to tell me that I’m doing the demo wrong on a product that the interrupter has never used— and then gotten fired for calmly standing up to him.

So let me tell you why there are so few games with strong female protagonists and so few games with characters that women can identify with as idealized heroes: games are made by men for themselves.

Yeah but WHY aren’t there more women in the tech center? Must be because of their genetically weird lady brains AMIRITE?!

I dont talk publicly about how abusive my experiences working in electronics, computer programming, machine shop and engneering environments for fear that if i ever try to work in those fields again these experiences would be used against me. Not like i can work anyway rn. I have been paid less and worked harder and my ideas belittled but then the boss magically comes up with the same idea, told to ignore personal health and medical issues to get jobs done, subjected to ridiculous gendered ideas about “girls being good at this but not that but youre not Really a girl so heres more sexist opinions” and my goddamn family ENCOURAGED ME to stay and to stop speaking up about it….

This track recently hit 100k plays, so I gave it a re-master and it came out waaaaay cleaner. Hope you guys dig the new download.

Give me a follow!





If youve scanned my collection of tumes you’ll notice I have a soft spot for DnB remixes of Hip Hop/RnB tunes lol. Here’s another :)

And if we have to go away
Then let’s go together

Let’s go hand in hand
And if there’s a chance that we can stay
Then let’s stay here forever
Eb Ab Eb
Or as long as we can stand

C5 Fm
If we have to go away

That’s what all the scientists say

So while we have another day

Lets do something dangerous and grand
