On Disability and Ableism

Hi friends. As some of you already know, I have been living with a progressive mobility disability. At first it was difficult to do much of anything, so now I use crutches to help me get around. Sometimes I use a wheelchair, like if my balance is especially bad and when my pain flares.
There are some things I can not do, and that is okay. I am short and therefore cannot reach things on very high shelves. I am 22 and therefore can neither play in the children’s activity zone at Six Flags nor enjoy the benefits of AARP membership.
There are other things I cannot do by virtue of my disability, and that is okay too. Some things I am able to do differently or with assistance, but that is not true for everything. 
I tell you this not only to inform you of my new, lived reality, but also to say something I never thought would need to be said: It is never appropriate, as an able bodied person, to accuse people with disabilities, individually or as a group, of “blaming” differences or deficiencies in ability on their disability. Disabilities, by definition, impact a person’s abilities in one or more areas of functioning. The only blame that needs to be assigned is against those who embody ablism and intolerance.

Anonymous said: Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

thefrogman:

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

We told my daughter “something borrowed, something blue” so she chose blue Chucks to wear with her wedding gown. Oh, and the groom is actually Spiderman.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

I’m a woman and I can guarantee that if you did this shit to me I would punch you in the boob. This is exactly why most gamers don’t trust women when they say that they play videogames. Cunts.
