First of all, a disclaimer. You don't owe your story to anyone. It might be too painful. Or damaging for some reason. Or you are just not in the mood for writing. Still, I was amazed at the number of people who felt that their story is somehow not worthy because they were only harassed when other people were actually assaulted or raped, or because they were not traumatized, or because it happened  a long time ago, or less often than to someone else. Whether or not you were traumatized is not...

Amerikassa on tapana järjestää gender reveal raskauden puolessa välissä (eli sukupuolen paljastus), kuulostaa hassulta suomeksi.

Every once in a while when I am at a job or client interview I get asked the question "we have a mostly male team, is it OK with you?". I am wondering what kind of answer do they expect: "Oh no! Men are icky and have cooties!" "Oh no, I would be so horny that I wouldn't be able to work at all." "Well, all my previous teams mostly consisted of women, but I guess it's 21st century now and I am sure men can be just as good." "Oh no, men! Is nothing sacred anymore?"
