Asking because I think this kind of (anonymous) transparency helps us all in advocating for fair compensation for ourselves.

Hi all! This holiday season I wanted to give a reminder of one way you can make people more comfortable! By putting your pronouns in your email signature, you can make trans people feel more safe to update theirs. Plus, if you have a gender neutral name, it can help people understand how to refer to you. Only do so if you’re comfortable, but this is a tiny way to be more inclusive. Happy holidays!!

How many of you growing up actually understood your future income potential?

I’m pretty sure it’s because income levels for my parents were always pretty stagnant, but very middle class.

I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?

Most porn labeled that way only had a moodier lighting set up.
