what disabled people consider accessibility:wheelchair ramps, elevators, stairs that aren't steep & contain breaks, braille, seeing eye dogs/assistant dogs, ergonomic workspaces, easy to grip tools, closed captions, resources in close proximity to each other, class note-takers, recording devices for lectures, medication, level ground, assisted learning, larger bathroom stalls with bars, quiet spaces (for sensory overload), lower workloads, being allowed time off work or school, just to name very very few
what able-bodied people consider accessibility:"just put wheelchair ramps everywhere!!!"
Doing a 12 minute pole-dance set complete with dozens of spins, inversions, flips, and splits is not half as exhausting as constantly defending yourself from a culture that says “Women are only valuable if they’re thin and attractive and continuously exude sex appeal, unless they try to utilize all those qualities in order to earn money. Then they’re a slut who had shitty parents. Dead hooker joke.”

“The Left is so busy thinking “correct” thoughts about its “political line”, that it does no practical work at all among the masses of real people and workers, and lives almost totally in the past. This is not a chess board where you move people around.”—Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin (via cisxvx)
The place to go for flashbacks to your own traumatic childhood and to develop new neuroses while you worry for the health and safety of autistic people who are minors and the types of crazy-ass abusive parents they have.
"You know, you don’t have to feel embarrassed for people when they’re doing something on purpose," he said. "They’re doing it because they want to. They’re doing it because it makes them happy. Don’t worry about her — she’s just doing her. She’s not embarrassed. So why are…
Nobody’s going to save you.
No one’s going to cut you down
cut the thorns around you.
No one’s going to storm
the castle walls nor
kiss awake your birth,
climb down your hair,

onto the white steed.
There is no one who
will feed the yearning.
Face it. You will have
to do, do it yourself.

“You don’t destroy the person you love. What you did to me, wasn’t love. Love is knowing their freckles and reading their favourite books because it meant something to them and you want to understand what it was. Loving someone is finding traces of them everywhere even if they weren’t planted. Love is opening up and looking in and accepting and understanding.

“One day you fall for this boy. And he touches you with his fingers. And he burns holes in your skin with his mouth. And it hurts when you look at him. And it hurts when you don’t.

emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
