Does #Google+ hate women ? « Bug Girl’s Blog
I have been Bug Girl online since at least 1997; as a blogger since 2005. I initially adopted a pseudonym because I had been the target of some white supremacist groups in the 90s, as well as experiencing stalking.
Later I discovered that I had become a high-enough level civil servant that I was actually PROHIBITED, by law, from having opinions online. I controlled enough of the state budget that my activities online, if connected to my real name, could be seen as lobbying. It looks like my current job in Connecticut is going to be bound by the same rules.
I also only feel free to talk about my disability (I have epilepsy) and my status as a rape survivor under this pseudonym. I don’t want my students, my employer, or my mom to find out these secrets about me from Google.
