1. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting from my orthopedic appt this afternoon. I have an MRI next week.
2. Never let my mom get away with saying she will be in and out of anywhere. Lies!! It was all lies!!
3. They have John Green giftcards at Barnes and Nobel. Does this mean he’s a classic?? I think I overheard a kid looking for Paper Towns for a school book list….
What the fuck even IS ableism? Discrimination against people who are disabled? You’re damn right that’s a good fucking thing, i don’t want a fireman who’s paralyzed from the waist down to attempt to rescue me from a burning building, or a mentally disabled person performing heart surgery on me. I don’t fucking understand.
Ableism is people thinking you are not able to talk or answer questions, just because you are in a wheelchair.
Ableism is being rejected for work because people don’t want someone disabled to pack their groceries, do their hair, whatever, even if they are perfectly capable of doing so.
Ableism is being murdered because of your disability, being raped because of your disability, being assaulted because of your disability.
Ableism is fucking scary and dangerous. The whole point is that disabled people are not less than healthy people.
I am not less than you, just because I’m disabled.
Hope this helps? Otherwise feel free to browse to my posts tagged ableism or to send me a message.
