REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)
Let me spread the shit out of this.
This is horrifying. And sadly true.
When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us.
We mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.
We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards.
Abled people just don’t get that.
2/2: called me the c-word WHILE defending macfarlene’s misogyny so you know they’re classy!!) and this paragraph helped me with half of the rebuttals!!! ok i just had to say something but it was so good!!!
Wow thank you a TON elisabethmoss! I’m completely BLOWN AWAY that you quoted me like that, That’s never happened to me before on tumblr and it feels pretty darn good :D
I’ll be honest though. I have no idea what a “macfarlane stan” is. Even still, I’m glad that I helped you find the words to defend your point! Another confession I have to make is that I’m not at all informed on the current debates about “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons”. I really just jumped into this discussion to make my point about the gendered dynamics of the show, which I noticed hadn’t yet been really discussed (There is still SOOOOO much more to be said though and I encourage everyone to consider contributing to the discussion!!!).
Thanks again elisabethmoss!!! YAY, you really brightened up my day with this!!! I hope that more people will read my critique of The Simpsons/Family Guy crossover, like it, learn from it, and reblog it too!!! (that’s asking a LOT though lol)
The ONLY reason white people really believe black pride is white hate, is simply because white pride IS MOST DEFINITELY black hate (along with all the other colors)
100% true. You should follow the same logic with jealous partners. If they don’t trust you when you’ve given them NO REASON to distrust you, it’s probably because they can’t be trusted… Time to move the fu*k on!!!!!!
i wish you’d move that bullshit on somewhere. this post has nothing to do with relationships.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you or try to change the subject. I just saw what I consider to be an interesting and important connection and drew it. I usually fight the urge to make these types of off-topic connections because you’re right, they muddy the discussion. But I have fibromyalgia and I’m feeling particularly foggy and shitty today and this just got past me. Consider this my formal apology.
