I feel kind of bad that my biggest reaction to Robin William’s death so far is ‘damn, there’s going to be dead poets’ society stuff all over my dash’ but the one and only time I’ve watched that movie I ended up hysterical for over an hour and all of these posts about his suicide are just making me see that one DPS scene again and again in my head and :(

captain america: the winter soldier + tumblr

Also, re: that last reblog — the idea of ‘appropriating’ disability is already a key component of ableism. If you allow this idea to exist, as it currently seems to be spreading on tumblr, you ignore the context in which it’s happening. That context is: disabled people are already told that we couldn’t possibly be disabled, because well, you can walk sometimes. Or you can talk sometimes. Or I saw you make yourself a sandwich the other day — why can’t you do it now? Or, if you would just try a little harder. I know you could do it if you’d just apply yourself. You must be faking it. Nobody really feels or thinks or experiences that.

of course, the word ‘appropriation’ isn’t used, but THAT IS ABLEISM, and if you take the diluted way tumblr uses the word ‘appropriation’ and apply it to disability? you literally just get ableism.

There are some things that might seem similar to appropriation of disability, that are worth talking about. For example, how non-disabled actors get a lot of praise for playing disabled characters in movies. That’s a thing.

but overall, ‘appropriation’ means ‘stealing’ — and honestly, at this point in time, we do not have a wealth of people jumping to steal disability experience and culture because they think it’s cool. or because they think it would make them money. in fact, the idea that people do this — pretend to be disabled to gain imaginary benefits — is an ableist myth.

so by all means, bring in the concept of appropriating disability when there are more than 2 non-disabled people in the world who would apply the word ‘cool’ or ‘lucrative’ to disability culture. right now we’re just fucking gross. and most of the disabled people i know would be thrilled to work toward a world in which ANYONE, regardless of disability, is allowed to use the accommodations they need. that’s what ‘universal design’ means. non-disabled people use assistive technology and do weird things all the time, it’s just that those things are normalized. and we want to bring attention to that.

we WANT to make a world where, if someone is flapping their hands, nobody stops them and says ‘you know, you’re insulting people who are REALLY autistic. are you sure you’re not pretending? are you sure you’re not just copying them? try harder.’

I am autistic and my parents have said things like that to me.

I do not care whether the person in the above anecdote is in fact autistic, or has ADHD or Tourette’s, or is in fact completely neurotypical, because either way, the idea hurts me and mine.

The idea that if you’re doing something disabled people do, you must be faking or stealing or copying or doing it wrong. If you make this idea a social justice idea, you primarily hurt disabled people.

You’ve got it backwards. We want everyone to be able to function as it works best for them, labels immaterial, societal barriers immaterial.

imagine a ghost getting brought back to life but they’ve been a ghost for so long that they have trouble adjusting. like, they keep running into walls and doors because they used to be able to just pass through them or they trip down the stairs because they used to float down them and sometimes they trip over their own feet because they forget how to walk all together

A closer look at this Internet counseling service raises many more troubling questions than it answers.

This is an old article, but given the recent round of reblogging in support of IMAlive, we want to encourage all Tumblr users to learn more about what IMAlive is. The article details a number of concerns about the service: its habit of asking its volunteers to pay for their own training, the vague tax status of its parent partner Hopeline, whose expenses only account for 20% (as of 2008) of its overall funding, and the troubling ties to Christian gay conversion therapy of its other parent partner, TWLOHA.

The National Suicide Prevention Hotline is always a resource you can turn to in times of emergency, as they are staffed 24 hours a day with trained volunteers: 1-800-273-8255 (1-800-273-TALK).

Finally, today might be a good day to ask the people you care about, #RUOK?

Okay, I don’t usually do this but I … um … stumbled across this and it’s just so hot I can’t stop looking at it. I figured at least one or two of you would agree with me about that. 

shamelessly_mkp: (Default)
like this is probably not the definition of echoalia at all but one of the things I love best about tumblr and fandom is that I can use all of these set phrases again and again as this really convenient shorthand for an entire burst of emotions / experiences / contexts it is really superamazing and also kind of strange like I think in tags okay???

(semi-creepy-side-note: one of my favorite fucking things about following into-the-weeds is their tags, they make me so happy they’re so consistent and consistently perfect and clear and SOUND GOOD a good tag has to roll off the mental tongue or it’s all jarring and discordant and NOT RIGHT and yeah this uh might be my neuroatypicality showing)

*likes your post* a great interaction, we are truly bonding

watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier was totally like having a productive day working from home, right?

I’m sorry. :( *hugs* if you haven’t already I recommend blacklisting robin Williams, suicide, death, grief, crisis, and dead poets society.

thetimesinbetween replied to your post “I feel kind of bad that my biggest reaction to Robin William’s death…”

:( <3 blacklists are your friend. no point in spiraling over this if you don’t have to—it sounds like an external thing, not an internal thing. ?

arrowsforpens replied to your post “I feel kind of bad that my biggest reaction to Robin William’s death…”

go watch aladdin? that’s always my first association for him.

I’m okay now, but thank you all! The “O Captain My Captain” DPS gifsets seem to have petered off, and those were the only really upsetting ones. (and even they weren’t too bad, it was just the sheer number of them.)

Someday I should really watch that movie again, because I remember it being fantastic, and I was in a pretty bad place at the time so probably it would be far less traumatic a second time around.

…I actually own a copy. I bought it two years ago - I’ve just never opened it.

o hai thar, surprise!fisting on my dash.

that’s. cool.


alrighty then.

"it’s a disorder not a decision" no screw you it’s definitely both and don’t you dare take away someone’s agency like that

it might not have been a decision we agree with

it might not have been a decision they would’ve ever made without being seriously ill or without something terrible having happened

but it was still their goddamn decision

they might not have seen any other path out, any other solution, but by god they fucking chose to take that path out, to seek that solution

and don’t you dare take that away from them.

shamelessly_mkp: (Default)
so the thing people don’t really talk about when they talk about the difficulties of setting boundaries (at least as far as I’ve really experienced) is how the fuck do you even bring it up


"dude, you’re awesome and all, but sometimes you do these fairly innocuous things that make me uncomfortable, and I realize I’ve never said anything and have basically implied it was totally cool for months now but I’d really prefer you just not?"

is just not something that slides easily into conversation, is what I’m saying.

like, I felt a little stupid about being so angry about it, so I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way.

It’s probably a little unreasonable to be this angry that the original post I was responding to has like 19k+ worth of notes, but here we are.
