I attended a screening for the movie “Boy Erased” and there were merely just a handful of gay people in the two thirds full of a theater. The movie is about to be released and it’s based on a true story. Outside of the movie since, whenever I mention the movie to gay people, they all say the same thing, “I don’t want to hear it.” So, what’s their problem? I currently live and work in San Francisco, the mecca to openly LGBTQ. Anyone who identifies as any of those but have grown up in a major … Continue reading “Boy/Girl Erased”
As a non-white woman in the USA, I’ve been a victim of sexual assault along with the standard harassment from men. I don’t recall who my perpetrator is by name, but I can name the place and time when it happened. If ANY man of who has the same build as that creep, I naturally cringe. I came across an article that was posted elsewhere about how even though Christine Blasey-Ford is credible about her claims about Brett Kavanaugh, she gets attention because she’s a white woman. That same article goes to explain that just about almost all the … Continue reading Who are the Invisible Victims of the #MeToo Movement?
At special breakfast hosted by the Bubble Agency during NAB Show 2018, during the round table discussions, cloud services are being used more often since most persons in film and music editing work remotely. In all honesty, there are still some skeptics about the usage of cloud storage and how secure it really is, but from many users’ experience, on prem has been the bigger problem due to being hacked into and info leaked onto the internet. Whether it’s news footage or just the leak of a film or music, all media sources don’t want their precious materiel to … Continue reading “Tech Security Meets Media”
When I was taking an engineering class in high school, a boy followed me into the supply closet and blocked the door so that I couldn’t get out. I was a virgin and the boy demanded a blowjob, which I didn’t even know what that was at the time. I punched his fat belly as I cried to leave. He grabbed my hands to touch him. I didn’t want to touch him because not only was I virgin then, I also came from a naïve Christian religious family. That incident happened in the autumn of 1995 in North Carolina. I … Continue reading “Sexual Harassment in the Media Industry”
EVERY day in my youth, I was told that I was stupid, fat, ugly, and a failure. My sisters ALWAYS told me that and my mother, of all people. ALL of my cousins and aunts that I grew up around, they too insulted me with the same. ALL of the family friends NEVER said anything nice to me, just insulted me, assuming it was funny. I grew up believing that I am fat, ugly, and a failure, just not stupid. I never knew what good I was until I got away from my family by parting ways with the … Continue reading “Why I Chose NOT to Go Back to School AGAIN”
I am crushed beyond and have been crying tears of sorrow. I learned someone’s darkest secret and didn’t reveal to them, mine. Without giving away what it is, all I can say is, the person my heart told me, “I LOVE THIS MAN” has the same dark secret as me! I have been hurt so many times in the past that I learnt to not reveal that part of me to anyone new I meet that could be a potential love interest. It’s unusual for a Latino man to admit something terrible in his life to anyone … Continue reading “Jungle Girl Loves Jungle Boy, Part 1”
I’ve been living in the city of San Francisco going on ten years. I’ve learned a lot about the area, some good and more terrible! I am a transplant, as most people in the city are. We weren’t born and raised in this city. MOST of the transplants DO have a certain political agenda compared to the locals. People from all walks of life come to this city of refuge, develop their tech startup, and try to live in place where it’s supposed to be hip. Most of the transplants, just so happen to be extreme political liberals, … Continue reading “10 Years in San Francisco, Part 1”
