Great post! And still very relevant a year later.
Ally is not a title or badge we can give to ourselves. Regardless of past or present actions.
To say "I'm an ally to X" is not something for you to say about yourself. It is something that members of X can say about you.
The only thing you can do is let your actions broadcast allyship. Whether or not you are one is completely in the eye of the affected.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
