people say they dont like suzanne anymore because she was literally being manipulated into bad behavior by all of her weaknesses, one being her desperate need for love and respect that no one in the litch gives her
but morello is revealed to be a stalker and a harasser on top of being a racist and people are like PROTECT LORNA!!
why are So Many practitioners/teachers of psychology and related fields neurotypical. you wanna talk fetishizing lets talk how many people get into psychology just because my Brain Problems are Fascinating
its funny bcs when the leading expert on bpd admitted that she has bpd other psychiatrists who are neurotypical suddenly became dedicated to discrediting her when previously they had agreed with her like thats how fuckin deep ableism goes
1. Everyone should be assumed neurotypical and should be forced to act neurotypical, until proven otherwise.
2. Everyone who has been unable to get diagnosed for any reason should suffer in silence.
the confession became one of the West’s most highly valued techniques for producing truth. We have since become a singularly confessing society. The confession has spread it’s effects far and wide. It plays a part in justice, medicine, education, family relationships, and love relations, in the most ordinary affairs of everyday life, and in the most solemn rites; one confesses one’s crimes, one’s sins, one’s thoughts and desires, ones illnesses and troubles; one goes about telling, with the greatest precision, whatever is most difficult to tell.Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1 p. 59 (via post-makhno)
The Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), a treaty modeled after the ADA, would help change that. It would establish a framework for creating legislation and policies in other countries. And it would protect the rights and dignity of all people with disabilities, giving them greater opportunity to work, travel, and lead full and productive lives.
The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations just approved the CRPD this morning by a vote of 12-6. Now it goes on to the full Senate for a vote, where it is expected to be voted down by Republicans. If you live in the US, tell your Senators to vote for it!(via disabilityhistory)
I wasn’t doing so good for a while but I just did the elliptical & lifting and now I’m sitting with my feet in the water of this really fancy pool. Just like I used to with the fountains at school.
