Welcome to the debut of the “Breaking Moulds” comic! This is something I’ve been meaning to start for awhile, and finally got the time/motivation to buckle down and do it! Also the inspiration, thanks to “I.T. Guy” – this is a real thing that happened this week.
I’m used to the micro-aggressors that occur when people assume I don’t know things about [insert topic here] because I don’t look like the sort of person (in this case, read: gender) that should know things about said topic. Rarely do I get such clear vindication and acknowledgement as I did this week. Score one for the mould breakers!
Has this sort of thing ever happened to you? How do you respond when you feel underestimated or brushed off? Do you have any great stories of vindication?
