Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

I never thought about this wow

things like this are why I’m too scared to get my disabled parking badge

And she seemed like a nice person.

But then she said this thing. This THING. She said “I’m really good at a lot of things so it’s not very hard for me to find a job” (or something to the exact same effect). And when she said it I felt this sudden queasiness and said “Well that’s not something you…

white/upper class bullshittery is a perfectly valid reason to be annoyed. Good rule of thumb: if someone gives off a very privileged kind of vibe and says a comment that rubs you the wrong way, more than likely they have stated some level of bullshittery.

Why White people are not coming out against the racism in Ferguson. He is dead on.

I could chill with this dude.

I want to thank this man for telling some serious truth. And he didn’t do it in a way that makes him come off as disingenuous. It’s not patronizing. It’s just honest. We don’t ever get that much out of the people who consider themselves “progressive”. He definitely has the right perspective on it. Plus, I just really like that he’s fired up about it. That gives me hope.

He ROCKS!

This is the only type of white dude I could ever seriously date.

White followers, TAKE FUCKING NOTE!!!

A NYC grad student working on food stamps for her thesis has released a free cookbook for those living on $4/day.

SIG NAL BOO OO OO OOOST

hello

oooooh this is so nice!

I believe it’s important to eat well, even when you’re strapped for cash. It’s good for your health and energy! This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes, the ingredients of which are fairly inexpensive.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THIS WOMAN AS A FELLOW WARRIOR AND A FANTASTIC HUMAN BEING. 

Someone become this woman’s patron so she can keep doing things like this.  Holy crap, could I have ever used this a few years ago.  Hell, I could use it now!

I will attest to the greatness of this cookbook. SO MANY GOOD RECIPES!! and there are a lot of options for vegetarian folks and vegan folks to enjoy and the cost is much lower than you think, even if you dont have all the things in every recipe.

Share my dear followers. SHARE!!!!

nvllify:

Please please please stop saying things like “If I had a physical illness instead of a mental one you’d take me seriously!” or literally anything to that effect.

This is a really common misconception but I have no idea where it comes from as the reaction pretty much all chronic…

THis is definitely something I struggle to make peace with at times but it is something that must be stated. You dont throw other disabled folk under the bus. The violence of ableism hits us all. Not fun for any of us but that doesnt mean physically disabled folk are “better off” because they can be seen.

Quote reblogged from Shit Rich College Kids Say with 243 notes

There is a common narrative amongst people that goes: “If you don’t agree with me, then you must be unintelligent, because if you were smart you would see it my way.” which is ableist, as it assumes people who aren’t considered intelligent by societal standards and constructions, can’t make their own decisions and be correct about their lived experiences, as well as it assumes privileged people aren’t simply speaking from positions of power. People have to have something society would consider wrong with their physical being to have an oppressive opinion. It is never the fault of societal oppression narratives people have internalized, but rather the fault of the individual.

You’re using your anxiety as an excuse to be lazy. Just get over it. I was able to get over it, and I didn’t need medication.

You don’t face actual oppression for having a mental illness. You’re looking for attention.

I believe that every american should at least watch this monologue from The Newsroom

I mean yeah but this gifset is also missing the part where he says, “And you, Sorority Girl, just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know” and also “Now none of this is the fault of a twenty-year-old college student, but you nonetheless are without a doubt a member of the worst, period, generation, period, ever, period.”

The entire show is Aaron Sorkin being a pompous, sexist ass through the mouths of his characters. Does he make some good points? Sure. But The Newsroom is still gross.

I would like to build off what maddy said as well. Although I dont watch the show, I have seen this video from where this comes fro and I have to say the first half appears kind of interesting until you peel it back a bit. As maddy already pointed out, there is a lot of sexism already in that whole sorority girl bit and the level of downright arrogance that the guy has for proclaiming us the worst generation ever is downright staggering. American imperialism. Colonization and continued neocolonialism, Eugenics and continued denial of the validity of black life. All fucking American things from generations prior to this one that have left the world we live in a fucking mess. How the fuck can you honestly have the nerve to cause such things to ruin our world, leave our generation with bullshit standards of just finding jobs that do not exist and continue propagating a desire to be involved in continued systems of misogyny, white supremacy, and capitalist exploitation…and you call us the worst generation?

Furthermore, the whole second half of this talk is an utter white, cis, male, able bodied wet dream in him going off about a lost America, an AMerica we could once be again. What America are you talking about there friend? Perhaps more importantly, WHOSE America are you talking about? Sure as hell isnt the one i have grown up in.
