Why is mentioning his race necessary? Men, regardless of race, can be like this. I’m Indian, before my non-existent privilege gets used against me.

Glad you mentioned your race too. I’m Indian also. Whether or not he is white is relevant to his privilege.

I need an advice: am in last trimester of pregnancy, waking up a lot during night to go to the bathroom but also since I am now quite uncomfortable sleeping due to my huge bump. My husband just told me he wants to start sleeping in another room so I don't accidentally wake him up during nights. I don't see him much during the day, we weren't physically close in a while (since the bump became visible) and I feel so left alone. Am I being selfish. Any thoughts?

I am officially titled as the BD teacher but some of my students also cross over into other areas. I have one student who is self contained purely for behavioral need, not academic. He’s currently injured enough people that I’m about out of paras who feel safe enough to work with him. When he goes south it takes quite a few people unfortunately. Have any of you ever ended up in the situation where you are the only one left? How do you keep the balance with the rest? I can’t teach only one daily.

WWYD: FTM and gov attorney - before I went on mat leave I filed letters listing my argument unavailability dates. Recently I learned I totally miscalculated my leave - I listed my return as Jan. 3, and HR just told me I am eligible for leave until late Feb. But one of my cases was already scheduled for early Jan. and I confirmed the date with the court. If I work at all, leave ends. Go back early since it’s my mistake or contact court and try to move even though I already confirmed the date?
