I had the same thought. Feminism means protecting fetuses! And lower taxes! Feminism means never having to say Happy Holidays! My local diner serves Pepsi products instead of Coke, and every time I go I’m like “excuse me, I’m a FEMINIST.” Feminism is against net neutrality because women can profit from monopolies Read more

I would inquire about the timeline at Job B and reiterate just how much you want to work for them even though you have a few other options on the table right now. So, it’s not a threat, but they get the message that you’re in demand. Read more

I once did exactly this, and it worked out very very well for me. I had a job offer from job A - but I didn’t want it as much as job B.

A lot of this depends on the jobs. If Job A is happy to wait, then you can wait until you hear back from Job B.

My mom is an incredible woman but suffers from alcoholism. Sometimes she is a very mean drunk and during those times she has said the most cruel things about my appearance- seizing on my insecurities I had shared with her and throwing them back in my face. But the worst was when she sarcastically said my rape was hard Read more
