The overwhelming whiteness of disability activism and mental health awareness is the reason why it took over a decade for me to be properly diagnosed with ADHD. By the time professionals humored me by putting me through a test trial of medicine for the ADHD I knew I had since high school—and, surprise surprise, it worked—I’d already developed many other conditions due to the pressure that’s being smart but failing classes, not getting into a good college because of the previous, being blamed for it, being sexually abused, and just giving up on life after I graduated in 2008. It is now 2018, literally a decade later, and I’m two months into the first ADHD medication I’ve ever been prescribed.

When you come online and you posit that you can’t be racist because you have [insert disability/mental condition here], you ensure visibility for your conditions and access to treatment are only given to other white people like you. POC not being diagnosed and under diagnosed for mental conditions—which there’s plenty of evidence suggesting living in a racist society causes POC to develop mental conditions at a higher rate than white people — is an epidemic in our communities. You also help further the idea that getting professional help, like medication and therapy, are ‘white people shit’, because you all use you disabilities/conditions so brazenly to excuse your bigoted actions.

It is so, SO fucked up that we just accept the use of chemical weapons by the police as normal when equivalent weapons are forbidden from use in actual warfare

war-lesbian:

the trouble is it is very hard to talk about something which is mostly evident from subtext and implication and dog whistles in a way that is not easily dismissed and used to portray the person talking as hysterical or over-reacting.

but when those dog whistles are as frequent as they are they cannot be ignored. except of course they can, and this is their real function. their meaning is evident to all those that that meaning is intended for but also, not only are they easily denied, they are also easily glossed over by those who do not want to believe they are there. it is a sort of plausible deniability not only for the person who is saying them but for the people who wish they weren’t - the ability to plausibly deny their existence to yourself.

I’ve been fighting my ex-employer for workers compensation since the middle of last year; I suffered a spinal injury, and now am unable to lift objects over 10 pounds, stand for more than an hour, or sprint and run.

Despite all this, I’m a full-time pre-law student, and applied for an administrative position at a local shelter through work-study. While that goes through, I still need to eat and pay bills.

As always, I’m willing to translate/interpret Spanish documents and media. I can also beta your fanfiction, or read your school papers for clarity.

“The Twin Cities” sounds like a destination in a high fantasy novel that you can only reach by climbing a mountain and solving a dragon’s riddle but instead they’re in Minnesota

NO DIGNITY

prince was really clear about this too from an interview in 1998

i’ve dealt with racist anarchists, i’ve dealt with racist marxists, i don’t think anyone’s tendency particularly made them racist or less racist. i think they lived in a deeply sick society premised on (in my case) the extermination of indigenous people, and that means that of course they were racist. that’s how racism works - it’s mandatory and structural. blaming racism on someone subscribing to a particular tendency (and that coincidentally being a tendency you don’t subscribe to) lets racism’s structural and systemic aspect off the hook. i take racism too seriously to dismiss it like that.

The entire idea that holding a specific political label would make you immune to the transfer of racism is itself a profound example to how ideology blinds people to the material realities of their own biases.

Listen when I talk shit about ‘SPORT’ in terms of football it’s not because I don’t ‘get’ it, it’s because I think it’s unfair and unhealthy and insidious that we encourage and employ men to suffer violently just so other people, mostly men, can get their adrenaline up over shit they won’t and can’t do themselves.

American culture obsesses over football like it’s some sort of holy pasttime, meanwhile these (mostly black!) men have to go out there and get concussion after concussion and tbh this shit- the impact damage, the unhealthy training regimens- it starts early. I remember a loved player dying on the field in highschool during practice because it was just too much.

When is a man fast enough? Big enough? Strong enough?

When are we going to admit that this ‘play battling’ is still just as damaging? And that maybe, just maybe, it’s something we should be beyond encouraging as a society?

Y’all need to figure this out. We have a strange cultural idea that the height of masculinity is to throw yourself into damage and it’s archaic. I can never understand why men encourage themselves / other men to risk violence and damage so casually.

Literally fuck pro football.
