hey if you have google chrome and you have dyslexia or problems with reading comprehension, the dyslexie extension is really great and is also free in the chrome web store. it also has the option to make text larger or smaller, a+, do recommend

Everyone deserves to be seen as who they are, such as disabled people who want their sexuality to be recognized. Because our society places so much stake in, particularly women’s, sexual desirability that values whiteness, thinness, and able bodied appearance, widespread desexualization of visibly disabled people goes hand-in-hand with the dehumanization of disabled people. This desexualization is directly related to the higher levels of sexual assault and abuse that disabled people experience.

my message to allistic allies is to do your research before donating to any autism-related charity. Find out what their purpose is. If there’s anything about a “cure,” that’s a hate group, not a charity.

Coming from an autistic, ASAN (Autistic Self Advocacy Network) and AWN (Autistic Women’s Network) are some good ones that I recommend. 

Disability Thinking: When "Despite" Is Really "Because"

I can’t prove it, but I suspect that many police and a great many ordinary citizens think that mental illness is actually a justification for deadly force, not a reason to avoid it.

Photos by Holly Spring of her daughter, who has no hand on her left arm and “struggled early on in life with Hirschsprung’s Disease.” 

Image description: Three ethereal, whimsical, artfully photoshopped photos of a young girl with pale skin and reddish-brown hair. The fact that she has no left hand is visible in the photos. In the first, she’s dressed in a purple dress with purple wings and a purple mask painted around her eyes. In the second, she’s wearing a white dress that becomes a net/sea at the bottom. In the third, she wears a green dress and balances on a piece of wood arising from a misty green pond surround by green trees and bushes.

Oof, rough stuff. And disordered eating because of gastro issues is hard, cuz fixing ur habits and emotions around food dont fix the gut. (and docs can take forever to fix the gut)

I do have a magic rice and cream corn meal for when things go wonky, just so i can sort of self monitor and reset. i know it wont make me worse, it takes x time to pass(if alls on order), and the corn helps me gauge if anythings stuck or not sticking long enough.
