My name is Michele. That would've been my HN handle, but: http://micheleincalifornia.blogspot.com/2014/03/mz-not-feminist-handle.html

I'm a divorced single mom with health issues and special needs kids. Online forums help me keep my sanity in the face of all that. So, I sometimes post and comment quite a lot.

I seem to be the only woman here with karma in the 5 digits. My karma hit 10K on 01/29/15. Long before that, HN felt like excessive drama to me. Over time, I put together objective data indicating that I was "prominent" for a woman here. I felt that helped explain what I was experiencing, in spite of still being ridiculously short of the leaderboard. The situation is also silly because I never managed to get a tech job, even though I have a Certificate in GIS.
