Purple is life. 💜

It says something about my weird intersecting interests that when I see this kind of question, my brain immediately goes: "...wait, Rust the LANGUAGE or Rust the GAME?"

🤦‍♀️👩‍💻🎮

I can laugh at myself, but that doesn’t mean I want people laughing at the simple fact of my existence.

Trans people are a funny bunch. We laugh about our experiences all the time. Listen to trans comedians and you’ll see the difference bw laughing WITH us and laughing AT us. 6/

I am a white, middle-to-upper-class, cis-woman, in a heterosexual relationship. I'm a millenial.

All of those? PUNCH AWAY. Seriously. I do not mind having those things made fun of.

Neurodiversity? Chronic illness?

Yeah...not so much.

Punch up *NOT* down.

RT @shardsofblue@twitter.com

I really don’t know how to make this any clearer for people:

You *know* you have an amazing boss when you put in a leave request and it's approved within (literally) 30 seconds 🥳

Taking a long weekend in August. Need *something* to look forward to.

It is the guns. America needs to do something about that.

RT @AlyssaM_InfoSec@twitter.com

Alright seriously enough is enough. I'm a gun owner, I have a significant number of them, I'm a believer in my right to own them however I'm also a responsible owner (trained and follow best practices). But I'm tired of hearing how this is not a gun problem.

I cannot watch, look at or read the news today. It breaks my heart.

Children shouldn't be paying WITH THEIR LIVES for politicians being unable to regulate deadly weapons.

I am so tired and just want to hide in bed. But there's still so much more to do.

Mark freakin' Simos completely agrees with me.

Life goal achieved. 🙌

@girlgerms@twitter.com Completely agree.

Sometimes people treat cybersecurity like an extreme sport.

Its managing risk by defending assets and people against criminals and spies.
