The truth is, there are some days I don’t want to hear the right answers. I already know the right answers, but I’m tired… so very, very tired. And I’m tired of being tired. I’m tired of being so out of control— of not being dependable anymore. I’m tired of having to fight and fight every day in a war I know I can’t ever fully win.

  • Straight White Guys: It's not racist. The reason why most characters are straight white guys is it's a business. They just want to do what makes the most money. No one's being racist or sexist. It's just smart business.
  • Straight White Guys: Having a Black Captain America or Pakistani Ms. Marvel or female Thor is PANDERING. All they're trying to do is get MONEY from you. It's just a marketing ploy! This is horrible!
Asking for help is
fucking terrifying, but
it’s necessary.
Internalized Ableism (A Haiku)
I think a good chunk of disability comedy is taking the mickey out of people who aren’t disabled and how they behave. It’s lovely, because the non-disabled person says: ‘Oh yeah, that is me, but they’re not being horrible to me’. So they laugh at their own behaviour, but they also learn from it.
Disablism? Simon Minty’s just having a laugh (via longmoreinstituteondisability)
