    "I’d love to not have to go to school like you!"

    No. You’d love to not have to go to school but still be 100% healthy and able to function, and not worry about schoolwork or exams or qualifications or your future, and be able to go out and do fun things with your friends instead, and still having the physical capabilities to be able to go back to school if you wanted.

    They are NOT the same thing.

    its weird that guys get so touchy when you accuse them of sexism like “im not sexist wtf????” when they should really be worried about “ive been acting sexist wtf????” like dude youre not the victim of an accusation the accusation is the result of your behavior

    literally every person born into a position to oppress has behaved like this and its gross

    Hi, my name is Zia and I need your help to create a projection I’m creating to display on my college campus on April 30th. 
I want to raise the visibility of invisible illnesses, and to do that I need your stories.

    I need your stories, what it’s like…

    If you want your donations to actually go to autistic people for programs, care and resources, donate either to the Autistic Self-Advocacy Program or the Autism Women’s Network. The money they receive doesn’t go to greedy allistic CEOs or ableist “cures,” but actual beneficial, autistic-chosen, needed things.

    Be a good ally this month and don’t support Autism Speaks!

    Abled people complain about disabled people needing accommodations, because “in the real world there are no accommodations”.

    But abled people receive accommodations all the time. Cars are an accommodation for those who can’t run a steady speed of 60 mph. Stairs are an accommodation for those who can’t jump from one story to the next. Phones are an accommodation for those who can’t communicate telepathically. Calculators are an accommodation for those who can’t do large math problems in their head. Lights are an accommodation for those who can’t see in the dark. Stoves are an accommodation for those who can’t heat things with their eyes. Clocks are an accommodation for those who can’t tell what time it is just by the position of the sun. Jackets are an accommodation for those who are susceptible to frostbite when it’s cold. 

    Abled people receive accommodations all the time, but since it’s considered socially acceptable to need those accommodations, they’re not considered accommodations. But imagine if you lived in a world where you needed those accommodations but most people didn’t. That’s what it feels like to be disabled.

    This is an incredibly important post. As one of my favourite professors said, “Technology is not innocent." As in, all technology had to be designed by a human being. And chances are, if that human being had any biases or assumptions that could be translated into the technology they created, they probably wound up in there. Practically everything is designed specifically for abled people. Think about cars, for example. Could you drive a car one-handed? Well, yeah, very likely, but since most people have two hands, they designed the cars to use both hands. Two hands to grip the steering wheel, buttons and levers on both sides of said wheel, etc. There is nothing that says cars are better when you design them for one specific degree of physical wellness, but yet that is exactly how they’re designed.  This extends to virtually everything human-made you see. I do mean everything.

    So for the love of heaven, please don’t whine and complain when you see disabled people of any variety getting “special accommodations.” All technological design is purposeful. Every piece of technology you see was designed to accommodate someone. If you’re lucky enough to be accommodated by something’s most common design, don’t be an ass to people who would be better served by an alternate version.

It’s so nice to see another woman with long armpit hair. I often feel like I’m the only one in the world who does it.I’ve come so close to shaving it the past week or so. I’ve been wearing more and more short-sleeve shirts because it’s spring and I should be starting pool physical therapy so, and between those two factors I’m so close to cutting it. Even though it makes them burn and gives me horrible ingrown hair.And don’t even get me started on the leg hair…

I try to wake up 2 hours before an appointment (it takes an hour for me to bus anywhere in this city because of where I live) and I try to have at least two or three backup bus routes mapped out. I still end up arriving 5-10 minutes late.
And don’t even get me started on remembering to charge my phone (5 hours of battery life is the absolute max, but only if used as little as possible) the night before, let alone the major accomplishment of remembering to set my alarm…
