It's good to see old timers stop back. To note that such time passes and there is continued stability is encouraging. Thanks Alexey. I'm rather new here, and have found it helps me too. I'm working on a lot of therapy process and do a lot of writing

If society truly wants equality, we have to point out that seeing this as a gendered issue is wrong. "If all the women" is a gendered statement, and that is wrong. Yes, I know we happen to likely be a minority in this class of #MeToo-dom,

Profile photos disappear for me once I log in. They're visible when I'm not logged in. Maybe it's a setting that I chose at some point.
