I am not sleepy. Instead I am indecisive about what I should be doing because I somehow managed to complete my infinitely long to do list for the day, and I’m also pissed off about how there aren’t many women in S.T.E.M fields (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math). Somehow, me not having anything with immediate importance caused me to catch up on #mydrunkkitchen and then to watch video after video of women in the sciences and engineering/mathematics fields talk about the sexism they have to deal with on a regular basis at their places of employment/the world in general. While this may not surprise anyone (all the women I know have to deal with sexism and awfulness on a day-to-day basis) I think it’s bad BECAUSE it doesn’t surprise anyone. Like, wtf dudes? I don’t think we should be complacent about this!! Encourage your daughters to chase their dreams (even if it means them going off to be a puppeteer in Vermont). And even if you’re skeptical, support them and give them the opportunity to prove you wrong. You’ll feel better if you do this (thanks dad).
That is all.
