My most passive aggressively sassy tweet today
That isn’t male privilege, that is just taking up too much room on a bus. Nothing else.
Yea actually it is. It’s male privilege when women are taught to take up as little space as possible and men to take up as much as possible. When an old lady sat down next to him he didn’t move an inch.

Disabled characters are written into stories for one reason: the disability. Do most people actually believe real disabled people spend our days obsessing about being cured? Or rhapsodizing about killing ourselves? Here is the truth: Disabled people barely ever even think about our disabilities. When we do think about them, it’s usually because we are dealing with an oppressive, systemic problem, such as employment discrimination. Can’t there ever be a disabled character in a book or film just because? Where the topic doesn’t ever come up? All sorts of interesting stories can be written about a disabled character, without the disability ever being mentioned. You know, just like real people.
The vast majority of writers who have used disabled characters in their work are not people with disabilities themselves. Because disabled people have been peripheral for centuries, we’ve been shut out of the artistic process since the beginning. As a result, the disabled characters we’re presented with usually fit one or more of the following stereotypes: Victim, Villain, Inspiration, Monster. And the disabled character’s storyline is generally resolved in one of a few ways: Cure, Death, Institutionalization.
This is great, z!!
I need to show this to my family and friends
How about if they ask to be left alone, leave them the fuck alone
This is really fucking important because people are made to feel as though there is something wrong with them and that isn’t going to stop as long as money is involved it pisses me off so much
