We interrupt this regularly scheduled Ukraine conflict update
Comments are usually reserved for things I learned or tips for development. Ever since the war in Ukraine started I have reserved one of the comments to raise awareness of the conflict.
This week I would like to interrupt the interruption to remind you that transgender rights are human rights and technologies and companies are not politically neutral.
You might have the privilege to ignore politics, but I guarantee you not all of your co-workers or users can. The sooner you listen to how they are impacted by seemingly neutral decisions the better you can understand your privilege and how you can lend it to others.
