Really appreciate you sharing this super thoughtful article, Penelope!

I can only imagine how hurtful it is to feel stuck between being true to yourself and being able to communicate effectively at your job. That's a choice no one should have to make.

I'm hopeful that the tech community will be more proactive in changing our tone from "dudespeak" where white cis-males dominate the conversation to "everyonespeak" where folks think more empathetically about sharing the conversation with all and actively encourage diverse voices to join in.
