calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how

Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.

the infantilization of developmentally disabled people is a method of dehumanizing us

and dehumanizing us is a huge factor in ableist murders

is my point getting through here

Watch: Black teen uses Vine to catch white people following him around stores 

These videos allegedly show a number of convenience store clerks nonchalantly following Polo to “make sure” he doesn’t steal anything.
They are not slick. Each time Polo catches them snooping, his accusatory outburst sends them scurrying down the aisles. 
It would be hilarious social commentary if it was so real.

Photo by Susan Hessing Photography/Facebook Miss Idaho, aka Sierra Anne Sandison, could certainly be posting pictures of crowns and diamonds all over her Twitter page. Sandison, a 20-year-old diabetic, was crowned Miss Idaho last Saturday and has talked openly about how she felt when she got diagnosed with type one adult-onset diabetes in 2012. She tweeted a picture of herself lying on her bed, wearing her Miss Idaho sash and crown, a Wonder Woman sweatshirt, and an insulin pump. “My world was flipped upside down by my diabetes diagnosis,” Sandison wrote in her official Miss Idaho blog.

One of the main reasons I run this blog is to share still being able to enjoy life through good food while having celiac disease, but that’s not the entire story. Celiac disease is why gluten free has to be taken seriously. It’s not just a fad for those of us with it, it’s a matter of living a healthy normal life.
This is the second time I’ve had a large rash on my face since I was first diagnosed. It feels like burning and stinging and if I pick at the little bubbles before it subsides, they can pop (don’t touch them)!
The first time, someone accidentally (drunkenly) spilled an entire beer all the way down my frontside and the rash lasted about 24 hours spread across the middle of my face. I’m pretty sure this time it’s from touching all of the dog food and treats with gluten, plus not washing my hands immediately afterward.
Many people think it’s a food allergy, but it’s actually an autoimmune disease that can be very susceptible to flaring. We have to use gluten free everything from shampoo to makeup without exception.
There is no treatment except avoiding all gluten every time, no cure, and no “cheating” unless you want to be in a world of pain.

Ableism is telling someone with a chronic illness (or any disability) that they just need to have a “positive attitude” and then they will feel better.

From Cameron Diaz and Demi Lovato to Zoe Saldana and Gina Torres, Latina women come in such a large range of different races and colors that the Latinas depicting and representing all Latin women in the media is not even close to accurate. In fact, Penelope Cruz, who has often been cast as Latina, is from Spain. Penelope Cruz has the Latin Look and thus has been cast in many roles because of it, but as a Spanish woman, she is not Latina. Latinas are usually a mix of either usually Spanish, African and indigenous blood and they sometimes have all three. Gina Torres, a beautiful Dominican actress who has never played a Latina on screen, has been quoted saying, “When I became an actress I quickly realize that the world liked their Latinos to look Italian. Not like me. So I wasn’t going up for Latina parts. I was going up for African American parts.” Torres’ experience is one that is very widespread. There is no place for Black Latinas in Hollywood. Not having anyone to look up to on the big screen and lack of representation kills the confidence of real-life Black Latinas.

¡no se olviden de nuestras hermanas Afro-Latinas!

Don’t forget about our Afro-Latina sisters!

For me a good ally needs to understand that we are, we are more than one identity. We are um, creatures of multiple identities and multiple existences all at once.
