What was that debate?

What was that debate?

First of all, I want to reiterate that Bossy Cosmetics is NOT a political organization nor does it have a political position in any election.

However, given that this is my blog, as the founder, I did want to share how exasperated I was by watching that debate last night.  It was completely unwieldy and disappointing because neither candidate was able to fully answer any question that really mattered to those voters who remain undecided in this important election.

In watching it, I kept thinking that if President Trump were a woman and CONSTANTLY yelling and interrupting Former Vice President Biden, he'd be called "hysterical" or "emotional" or worse even "BOSSY."  I also thought that Biden in losing his cool and calling Trump a "clown" or telling him to "shut up" would be met with fury by the Left and Right, if he were a female candidate on that stage. 

In the midst of my discomfort and shock while watching the debate, I couldn't help thinking that we could have used a vibrant young woman on that stage but I guess that's wishful thinking.  

 

I'm with Viola Davis, bosses -- VOTE!!!!!!

Thanks for listening to my brief rant!

Love,

aisha

Talking Equitable Design with Aubrey Blanche
Talking Equitable Design with Aubrey Blanche

March 17, 2021

I fully expected Aubrey to be amazing and knowledgeable about Equitable Design but I wasn't quite prepared for her to be so darn likable while doing it!  So it does help that she showed up to the IG live with beautiful pink hair, a cool pair of glasses, AND wearing our HUSTLE lipstick.  She then proceeded to drop real gems about what it's like to live and operate at the highest echelon of the tech industry at the intersection of being a Mexican American woman with indigenous roots recognizing that she is white-passing while identifying as bisexual and living with bipolar disorder.  When I tell you that it was a refreshing and really open conversation about how you effectively use empathy and lived experiences to design processes and systems within companies that make them work for everyone - IT WAS.
