Respect my authority vs respect my humanity
Sometimes people use “respect” to mean “treating someone like a person” and sometimes they use “respect” to mean “treating someone like an authority”

and sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say “if you won’t respect me I won’t respect you” and they mean “if you won’t treat me like an authority I won’t treat you like a person”

what even is a "community engineer" even???
i'll be completely frank with you - as a woman, the day your title no longer includes "engineer" or something of that sort, the perception of what you do changes and it's hard to build that back up. as someone who has worked in two systemically sexist fields (academia, web development), i 100% am behind the idea that job titles are a social construct designed to strengthen the glass ceiling, full stop. so it is imperative that as long as i'm doing a job that involves building web applications, even if not on the core product, i have the title of engineer or developer.

Ellen Pompeo, TV's $20 Million Woman, Reveals Her Behind-the-Scenes Fight for "What I Deserve"
"By the way, I saw the other path. My agent once sent me to see Harvey, too. I went right up to his room at the Peninsula, which I would never normally do, but Harvey was a New York guy, so it made sense. Plus, it was in the middle of the day, and he had an assistant there. He didn't try anything on me. Had he, I'm a little rough around the edges and I grew up around some very tough people, so I probably would have picked up a vase and cracked him over the fucking head. But I also feel completely comfortable saying that I walked into that room batting the shit out of my eyelashes. My goal in that room was to charm him, as it is in most rooms like that. You think, 'Not only do I have to show that I'm a good actress, but that director also has to in some way fall in love with me and at least become enamored with me.' That never felt right or good to me. And I've had conversations with my agents 17 years later. I've said, 'You sent me into that room knowing…' They claim they didn't know."
