I’m annoyed that a white woman was selected as the leader of the newly created Black Action Council. I have no doubt that her credentials qualify her, but in an age when firms are saying they can’t get their diversity numbers up, they feel a white woman is best suited to lead a Black Action Council?

Hi everyone! So I'm kinda questioning my gender views of myself and I need help and education on what I'm feeling. In essence, I can't discern whether I'm a cisgender, straight female that isn't always super feminine, or if I'm really closer to non-binary, or have fluid gender expression (is that correct?) Will add examples/reasoning why I'm questioning this below. In essence I can't tell if this is a personality trait or gender question

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?

I recently found a new job and am (finally) making as much as my husband even though historically I’ve made significantly. We’ve recently purchased our home and also have a child on the way. My husband insists that because I now make as much as him, I should kick in half of the mortgage, car loan, and utilities (I pay about 40% now). I feel this is an unfair ask because as head of household, the man should shoulder more of the financial responsibility. He says it’s the 21st century…
