This man was being turned down and rejected from every job he applied for, despite being more than qualified for a lot of them. After four months, he realized that everyone he sent his resume to was assuming he was a woman because his first name was Kim. Once he added “Mr.” to it, he got an interview for the very next job he applied for. And the next one. And the one after that. In less than two weeks, he had a job with a considerably higher position than he had ever held before.

Please, tell me more about how gender-based job discrimination doesn’t exist.

"I had fortunately seen a number of CVs in my time. I was happy with the choice of style and layout, and the balance of detail versus brevity. I was particularly pleased with the decision I made to brand it with my name, with just enough bold positioning to make it instantly recognizable. And as I sat scouring every detail of that CV, a horrible truth slowly dawned on me. It was my name.

My first name is Kim. Technically it’s gender neutral, but my experience showed that most people’s default setting in the absence of any other clues is to assume Kim is a woman’s name. And nothing else on my CV identified me as male. At first I thought I was being a little paranoid but engineering, trades, sales and management were all definitely male dominated industries. So I pictured all the managers I had over the years and, forming an amalgam of them in my mind, I read through the document as I imagined they would have. It was like being hit on the head with a big sheet of unbreakable glass ceiling.

My choice to brand the CV with a bold positioning of my name actually seemed to scream that I was a woman. I could easily imagine many of the people I had worked for discarding the document without reading further. If they did read further, the next thing they saw (as politeness declared at the time) was a little personal information, and that declared that I was married with kids. I had put this in because I knew many employers would see it as showing stability, but when I viewed it through the skewed view of middle-aged men who thought I was a woman, I could see it was just further damning my cause. I doubt if many of the managers I had known would have made it to the second page.”


The bolded is 100% accurate, too. For a man, being married with kids makes him more employable, because it’s thought that a family is good motivation for him to work hard and stay in a job. For a woman, you are encouraged to keep that off your resume and not mention it in interviews. It’s absolutely seen a strike against your favor, because everyone anticipates it’s going to be the mom who’ll stay home with the kids if they’re sick… and you might even have the audacity to get pregnant again while employed.

When I say something that should not be controversial 

Why aren’t 50% of coal miners women? Why not 50% of janitors or pest control workers? Don’t forget front line military!Likewise, why aren’t men 50% of college enrollment and 50% of teachers?
We should eliminate the stupid “personal choice” thing because forcing people into certain professions is way more fun.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT FORCING PEOPLE INTO PROFESSIONSTHIS IS ABOUT WOMEN GOING INTO SCIENCE BEING DISCOURAGEDTHIS IS ABOUT WOMEN BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST

FIRST, WHAT GBT SAID.^
SECOND…
FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION WOMEN COAL MINERS.  BECAUSE I STUDY THEM.  AND GUESS WHAT?
Women had to fight court cases to be allowed into coal mines as workers.  Once a few women paved the way, thousands of women followed in short suit because on average, their incomes increased 500% over working as domestic workers, doing textile piecework and waitressing.  Some saw their income jump 1000%.  
Dig a little deeper, and you’ll find women have been mining coal for centuries.  They were pushed out in the Victorian period because the mansplainers of the day could tolerate women wielding such a phallic object as a shovel underground with male workers present.  And wearing pants!  Still, women disguised themselves as men to work in the mines.
Oh, and World War II.  Where did all the coal come from then?  Oh, that’s right.  Women.  Women who were expected to stand aside and let the men take their jobs when the war was over and were denied benefits when they later developed black lung.

Also, can we just talk about how absurd it is to say that women don’t make up 50% of ‘janitors’?Gee, I wonder if that’s because when a woman is hired to be the primary cleaner and caretaker of a property, it gets called ‘housekeeping’ or ‘maidservice’ and pays less than the EXACT SAME JOB, which if done by a man is given the title ‘janitor’?

*first week at new site*
"um…are you allowed to have those tools?"
*trained/licensed in HazMat, in charge of OSHA enforcement*
"Be careful, sweetie, that glass cleaner has ammonia in it!"
*shows up to repair the industrial pipe threading machine*
"oh, the CLEANING LADY is here!"

autistiel:

one of the most hurtful things to say to an autistic person in the midst of being excited over something or info-dumping is

nobody cares

because you’re essentially saying that their feelings don’t matter, they don’t matter

if you don’t want to hear at least be fucking nicer about it because some of the things we get excited over are important to us and our well-being

Unless the autistic person in question is a white guy at your D&D group full of other autistic people who are not white guys and he decides to start quoting Blazing Saddles in the middle of your campaign. Just because movies are someone’s special interest and they’re infodumping about it doesn’t mean white guys dropping n-bombs and going on rants about what is and isn’t racism in my house will EVER be acceptable.

Or one of the students who is a 50-something year old white guy at your job in the disability office computer lab starts infodumping about his Repub-libertarian “views” on misogyny, violence, police, and race in a room filled with women of color and young black men specifically and going on about “thuggish” behavior and some other choice turd nuggets regarding how Black people are just “more likely” to commit crimes than white people.

Or a huge argument erupts in a hallway between a disabled transgender woman of color and someone whose special interest is Christianity/religion because the she didn’t fucking appreciate being told she was going to hell and needed to embrace Jesus.

Here’s the thing. I’m an autistic person who is used to being in large groups of other autistic people, physically disabled people, mentally ill people, and developmentally and/or learning disabled people. And one of my biggest problems has always been the perpetuation of oppressive structures and social violence against the multiply marginalized within the community.

Sometimes in groups, everyone is disabled, everyone is upset, and everyone’s feelings matter. Sometimes the most important thing is getting someone to STOP, immediately, before they cause any more harm than they already have. I haven’t ever used the words “nobody cares”, but I’m sure as hell not polite about it. Because sure, that person’s feelings matter, but so do everyone else’s.

While a lot of the time, autistic people and infodumping are pretty harmless, there are other times when we need to just shut up. My autism includes hyperlexia, and I KNOW for a fact there have been times when my rants were unnecessary, irrelevant, and harmful. I’ve said as much before and I’ll say so as many times as necessary, because being autistic doesn’t mean you’re incapable of learning to be considerate.

This isn’t about policing autistic people’s communication style or punishing for poor word choices. This is about respecting boundaries that have been made clear to you by other people, and communicating openly, honestly, and sometimes, as bluntly as possible to reduce confusion. Special interests aren’t sacred, especially when they’re causing direct harm to other people, especially when those people are also disabled.

For some reason, this is still considered somehow “controversial” in some autistic communities. Autistic people are still accountable for what we say, by individualized standards. And pretending like we’re not is more ableist than holding us accountable.
