In August I worked full time at a start up in San Francisco, a gaming company in the financial District. For reasons I outline at the end of this recollection, I cannot name the company or use the real names of anyone in the office I discuss. I can say that ironically, months before working there, I took a picture of one of their (MANY) ads plastered all over the downtown BART stations, as well as in the trains themselves:
Yeah, I worked for that misleading eyesore. I was offered the job while I was at a coffee shop a few blocks from my new spot in Oakland, maybe not even a week after returning to The Bay from New Orleans. I was approached by a person who runs a contracting “company,” hiring video game testers to work at various game companies. Literally, he walked up to me as I was drinking coffee and doing computery things and asked “Excuse, do you play video games?”
He gave me his contact info and walked away. I turned to Li like “was that for real or was he being an uber creep and hitting on me?” At this point I wish it was the latter and nothing more came of it.

There were cows, tractors, farmers, streets filled with local food and beautiful fluffy clouds.
And pizza with local mushrooms, nibbles with grain-fed chicken and local…

And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life….
