Why I’m not putting triple parentheses around my name

It seems like the kind of movement I’m uncomfortable with, more about self-congratulation than about stamping out bigotry. I say that without any disrespect for my peers who ARE participating in the movement. I could be wrong. And there are times I’m guilty of self-congratulation too. This very post might be an example of that.

But still, for the benefit of anti-Semites keeping databases of Jews in media: Add me to your list. I’m just a tech journalist operating in a business-to-business niche, but I’m definitely a Jewish person in media.

Also, I support the rights of Muslims, LGBTQ people, Latinos, and I’m a feminist. So go ahead and add me to those databases as well.

You’re welcome!

If you don’t know what I’m talking about: The (((echo))), explained [Matt Yglesias – Vox]

Also: Yglesias, despite the last name, is Jewish. Who knew?! Adam Sandler, add him to that song!

I just checked to be sure I included my Judaism is listed in my online bio. Indeed yes – very first paragraph. I note there that I’m not observant, because that’s true. Heck, I’ve even been known to celebrate Christmas. That doesn’t make me any less Jewish. My Judaism isn’t something I do; it is part of who I am.
