Especially at work, let's start acknowledging the skill of people that mediate, find middle grounds, lead with kindness instead, resolve with gentleness. These can be as powerful as being bold, loud, strong. Let's start noticing, and let's start helping others notice.

Hahahahah I didn’t know that Gillick was the *losing* party, not the one that proposed the law. That’s such a major way to lose that I almost feel sorry for her… but then apparently she hasn’t changed her mind yet so, no not feeling sorry.
Anyway let us end the week by paying tribute to Mrs Victoria Gillick, queen of the law of unintended consequences. She went to court to try to stop under 16's getting contraception and abortion and instead enshrined those rights in law. Think on, litigators!

Every time I see a first time popup (or even worse, a reminder one) that is telling me what an icon does I scream internally “AND THATS WHY LABELS EXIST FFS”

Agreed. Often one of the possible traits of a good leader is that… they are invisible.
Just because someone is famous, important, or a household name doesn’t mean they’re going to be a good leader. Often the best leaders are people with little name recognition, who put in the work to get the best out of their people.

Years back I had a long open discussion about time and value delivered with the CEO and CTO at the time because our office wasn’t “reaching the hours required”, with the irony that we also were one of the highest revenue locations.

They kept arguing that consulting business is about hours sold. I pointed out we stopped selling contracts by hours years back, so no, that’s not what we were doing. And I rejected the idea that our office was not doing well because we didn’t reach “80% utilization”.

I still have that conversation saved (was in text) as a reminder of how even in front of obvious results people didn’t understand. Not even being one of the top revenue generating location avoided that idiotic, demeaning, mindset.

As these stories often go, the company collaps— my mistake, got acquired.

This is a massively important point not just in freelancing but in general.

Second, if you despair at how the 'debate' draws focus away from the real problems women face (and I do), remember that if you are trans (or an ally) you have no choice but to engage with that debate. For you (or them) it's existential.

Surveillance tech... I mean adtech... fails in so many ways that's ridiculous it has been pursued for so long and with so much harm, but I've to say that one of the things that are the most hilarious is when you buy something and then they keep trying to get you buy it for weeks.

Ah well, the optimism of the previous tweet was short lived. :|
We’re shocked to hear of the comments attributed to the Minister, which are both hurtful and harmful to LGBTQ+ communities. vice.com/en/article/jg8znx/u…

The step back in trans care in the UK has been finally undone. Now it's time for more steps forward.
In a huge win for trans people and their families, the Court of Appeal has today reversed the judgment handed down in Bell v Tavistock. The judgment is a resounding success for the Tavistock and those of us who supported their appeal. Read more here: glplive.org/bell-win

Hey IKEA the 1990 called, they want their “gamer” aesthetic back. No but really… black leather led designs? I thought we moved on from this monoculture of how a “gamer” looked like.
