someone is going to say “i have to go to the moon” in a bored, defeated tone one day
I'm 18 years old and I mostly just reblog stuff I like. Expect a lot of stuff related to my fandoms, and social justicey things. Anything else you want to know? Send me a message. Anon is on if you're shy.

What the fuck is this and why is it in my inbox and how did you find me
I don’t need this “you aren’t defined by your disability” bullshit because guess what, my disability is absolutely a part of who I am. That treads really close to shit like “I don’t see you as disabled” or “you’re so much more than your disability” and I’m just sitting here thinking: fuck off, stop trying to divorce myself from my disability.
this kind of thing sits reeeeeally uncomfortably. I’m sure people that say this kind of thing mean well… but here’s the thing:
- if you want to illustrate that they aren’t defined by their disability then start by saying ‘people with disabilities’ rather than ‘disabled girl’ especially not ‘THE disabled girl’ wtfffff
- People with disabilities live with them EVERY DAY, it’s as integral a part of their lives as breathing. They might not like it very much and they may have internal ableism and cognitive dissonance over it (not at all helped by institutional ableism in society), but it is as much a part of their identity as ‘lesbian’, ‘POC’, ‘female’, ‘genderqueer’ etc. To tell them it doesn’t matter, is erasure.
- Not everyone has negative attitudes toward their disability. Moreover, disability is not a dirty word or a bad thing. Most negative attitudes that people with disabilities have towards their disabilities come from a place of frustration with a disabling society ie. lack of accessibility, accommodations/allowances, and unwillingness of others to alter their patterns to accommodate them. There’s nothing wrong with being disabled.
- People with disabilities don’t need abled people to tell them that their disability is not their single defining characteristic and that there is more to them than their disability. To think that they do is straight-up patronising, kind of othering and ableist. OF COURSE THERE’S MORE TO US THAN OUR DISABILITIES! WE KNOW THIS! We’re not dense.
As a side note, I also get pissed at sentiments about how inspirational I am for being disabled. No. Stop. I’m not inspirational for living with a disability, if anyone is defining me by my disability it’s these people.
Sadly a lot of the very people I’m closest to are guilty of this. (None of you of course, ILU all)
"I think you’re a human being"
I hate the music the neighbours are playing very loudly at midnight. They only seem to own three songs, all of which are from a genre I despise, and these songs are played on repeat all night.
