Violent Relationships with Dr. Leelia Franck

Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.

Autism isn’t something a person has, or a “shell” that a person is trapped inside. There’s no normal child hidden behind the autism. Autism is a way of being. It is pervasive; it colors every experience, every sensation, perception, thought, emotion, and encounter, every aspect of existence. It is not possible to separate the autism from the person—and if it were possible, the person you’d have left would not be the same person you started with.

This is important, so take a moment to consider it: Autism is a way of being. It is not possible to separate the person from the autism.

Therefore, when parents say,

I wish my child did not have autism,

what they’re really saying is,

I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different (non-autistic) child instead.

Read that again. This is what we hear when you mourn over our existence. This is what we hear when you pray for a cure. This is what we know, when you tell us of your fondest hopes and dreams for us: that your greatest wish is that one day we will cease to be, and strangers you can love will move in behind our faces.

With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.

Deepest thing I’ve seen in a while.

Damn

Uh, why is Israel there? Maybe it got confused with the Netherlands? Also, America? Why America and not China (which has hella huge influence in Africa now)? Or India? I mean, I appreciate the overall sentiment, but…it seems inaccurate.

Israel is on here because it is a stand in for “The Jews.”  The people who made this want you to think that Jews are the reason for Africa’s problems.  They’ll claim otherwise.
But they know they sent the message, and they know that every time a Jew sees this, we know what they meant.

OMG it’s back.  Can we stop accusing Israel of doing shit it’s not doing.  Like it does plenty of things all on it own to criticize and condemn, without making shit up.

For structures that have no entry steps, ConvertaStep also makes ramps of three sizes that come in a manual as well as automatic version.
(via ConvertaStep | Wheelchair Accessibility | Ramps | Convertastep - Freedom In Mobility)

This welcome mat converts into a fully accessible wheelchair ramp. Beautiful and functional design. I want it.

Some more info, for people who are interested.

First of all, I can’t believe this has almost 3,000 notes. I’m so glad that people are sharing this - both as a cool design, and also as an important accessibility feature.
Thanks to pseudosoph for linking to additional info (above) regarding weight limits, lift height, and product background — the creator is a wheelchair user himself! Very cool stuff. Keep sharing!

So many places need this.

Pay attention to Ferguson. We need to organize and push in solidarity with the protestors there. The police crackdown is intensifying so we need to support them as much as possible.

The protestors in Ferguson are true heroes and we need to follow their example in solidarity. Organize solidarity actions and connect them to local issues in your own cities. What’s happening in Ferguson is not isolated, the racist police brutality is common in every city.

Keep on supporting the protesters in Ferguson!

you can just tell that Nicki Minaj is the kind of person that when you’re telling a story and everyone else in the group is talking over you, she’s making direct eye contact with you and paying extra attention so that you don’t get discouraged and stop mid-story

this is actually so true
