As a plural trans hacktivist, I:
-illegally optimize my mind and body with chemicals
-access and modify data without proper authorization
-maintain multiple Ghosts with different specialties
-speak up and struggle against oppressive authorities
-pepper my daily speech with terms from sci-fi media
-do all of this with no regard to mainstream opinions
In other words, I *am* cyberpunk, and all the cishet white dudebros can eat their hearts out - the future is *now*, and we're *it*, old men!
Tech bro gender essentialists in Silicon Valley like to defend the gender gap in their industry by claiming men are more "hardwired" for tech work due to lack of human interaction or emotional work, yet almost every problem coming out of that field is related to its negative impacts on people, failure to recognize how their customers interact with their products, etc.
