The headline calls this a glitch, but it was a logical decision that had unintended consequences. What do you do when you are the epicenter of the consequence?

It’s a technology horror story.

Fortunately, there is a viable solution that will hopefully minimize this issue in the future. I just wish for the sakes of the people affected that this solution had presented itself when this was being initiated so many years ago.

 

Checking off your privilege

In the circles I travel, we talk a lot about privilege. It is easy to think but I grew up poor and think that means I don’t have privilege, but I do. By an accident of birth I am white and cis (and female), so a lot of things are easier. I like this video because it starts the conversation about privilege without alienating people initially by tying it into race, sexual orientation, or gender expression – all areas where people are most likely to be blind to their own privilege.

Happy viewing!
