For 18 years, I thought she was stealing my identity. Until I found her

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/apr/03/identity-theft-racial-justice

This is super fucked. I got a "fix it ticket" like two years ago and recently had the government issue a wage garnishment to my company's payroll because they recorded an old address and then sent all the warnings there. I visited the police station every two months for half a year to inquire about that ticket but everyone just said there was nothing in the system.

It's nice that she got a friend out of it. I feel like I probably would have just gotten told to fuck off. Because I'm a dude.

You Don't Need to Quit Your Job to Make

https://blog.stephsmith.io/you-dont-need-to-quit-your-job-to-make/

This is a nice article about compromising between creative and corporate work for tech people and freelance artists/designers. I really like her explanation of meta work. It's exactly what I think about whenever I say I want to "make something and build stuff up". I was also inspired by her math example of doing a little bit everyday to achieve your goals.

I was just going to blame it on people being SJW losers, but I guess I'm not one to talk. I don't even have any friends.

EXCLUSIVE: Jordan Peterson, Dozens of Academics Attack Ivy League Anti-Male Bias

https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11853

It's obviously female biased in universities and I wonder a lot if it is really making it harder for guys to get into college. I'm not sure if we're at that point yet but I think it definitely is changing.

I see this happening at tech companies too. My team and hiring is odd since (quite literally) everyone we've interviewed and hired for the entire time I've been here has been female. It kind of makes me question how I was hired and if I would have gotten the job if I didn't have someone already on the team refer me... Wondering if I am having trouble getting hired because I'm a guy keeps me up at night.
