You serious? You’re a white man so you’re already setting off their imperfect ally alert 🚨 - even more so if you’re sending them messages that aren’t completely fawning over them. Seeing as how they’re just ignoring you, rather than turning your messages into stories, it suggests you’re on their side, but just not enough. Change your profile pic and see how that goes.

They’ve said multiple times that they’re swamped with messages. They have real jobs to you know.

^ There is a Gmail address provided on their IG for contact, I'd not rely on DM knowing the bombardment of messages. I'd also not hang all my hopes and dreams for help on them as they're after all not properly staffed or doing this full-time. Have you tried researching + contacting other orgs involved in this line of work including Me Too? And if possible, another job? I'm very sorry to hear you're being harassed and don't give up or wait on DMA though

As a white gay male who sent them a genuine question asking for help or even just pointing me to a lawyer who could help with my CEO sexually harassing me in an HR-less agency, getting back a screenshot of their “you can contact us any time” message was extremely disheartening. Like, yes, I know I can contact you, I’m literally doing that now. I didn’t bother even saying WTF because I figured it’d get screenshot and ridiculed. It made me sad and I feel even more helpless.

^ Was that after you emailed them at the provided address or?

I’m a white cis gendered guy and they message me back all the time. We’re friends. We talk. I respond. It took them a few weeks because of how the messaging works but then they responded to the whole backlog What do you messages say? Please tell me you’re not just asking them how to pause Instagram video.

@CW2. Also white/cis/straight male. Never asking about pausing stories lol. More so just sending encouragement, and I was wondering if my “social position" was reason I haven’t been acknowledged, or bc they are (understandably) overwhelmed. To be clear I don’t really want/need a response, but was curious if similar folks to myself are also having trouble engaging them

like

@AD1 makes sense, and yeah I was being genuine. They seem to be very active (10-15 acct managers, lots of message posts on their stories). Just curious since I’ve sent a couple messages, but don’t even get an acknowledgement (e.g 👍). Nothing I’ve said is post-worthy so not complaining about that, just curious if i’m welcome or if I’m an outsider (bc of race/gender), even though I support them. Could just be swamped, only ask bc stories show active engagement w followers, wondering if that’s w everyone. Lil impromptu survey.

@AD1 didn’t know about the provided address! Just messaged them on IG a while ago because they always post IG stories of messages. They wrote back after a week and just said “sorry, we’re really busy, but we send this to everyone” and it was a screenshot of their “you can trust us” manifesto. I get they’re probably swamped and busy but it’s hard to not take it as a pointed critique that the harassment I’ve experienced wasn’t worthy enough of their attention. I support their whole mission but wish they’d do better at protecting us little fish who need help but don’t have big juicy targets to attach to our stories. Or at the very least pointing us to someone who could help or give advice about a helpless situation.

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
