Me: tells students to use 'autistic person' Me: teaches 'autistic person' all term Me: writes exam using 'autistic people' External reviewer: you should avoid 'autistic person' and use 'person with autism' Or, you know, not🤦‍♀️

I'll say this again. The amount of times a person tells me "Wow, this should really be accessible" vs the amount of times I want to say "ya think" 🙃

I’m having a Year of Bravery starting at Samhain (which was a couple of days ago). I even have a blog I’ve just started for it, but I’m nervous to link it to this twitter... Anyway I’m starting with storytelling for an audience soon...!!! Your NY resolutions sound fantastic :)

Also make sure to check out & donate to: 1) , a volunteer group providing mutual aid to PWD & seniors whose lives are at risk because of PG&E’s greed & negligence. They’ve helped 32 families in just their first week of organizing! (8/9)

If you think the progressive circles you move in are immune from this belief, talk to any disabled person who has been told it’s selfish & wrong to use plastic straws to stay alive. Also check out ’s article on “Climate Darwinism.” (7/9)

If you’re curious, TV Tropes provides a good list of examples of villains on vents/ using other medical equipment to stay alive, but doesn’t really go into why this trope is so pervasive (ableism). (4/9)

You know how I say that stories matter? This is why stories matter.

Blaming disabled people trying to survive under ableist capitalism for the rammifications of said ableist capitalism (i.e. carbon footprints, plastic misuse etc.) makes you a terrible person. Oh also it’s -53,642.19 points.

970,000 wankers. The comments are disgusting. Let me explain this to you: screen readers exist. Oh, "it's just a joke"? That shit doesn't hold up with racism, sexism, or homophobia. So it doesn't hold up for ableism either. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Equality, Equity & Justice have specific meanings within ‘anti-oppression’ movements/teaching, and rarely discuss disability. Some of these words are used differently in disability equality/justice movements/thinking. Why? Please RT
