unlearning problematic behavior is a long ass process
you will fuck up
handle it gracefully.
Helloes. I'm Tenna, a 22-year-old slacker with dreams of making it big in the film business. Although most of the time, I can't even motivate myself to put on pants, so maybe I'll just end up writing Harlequin-novels in my cat-filled apartment.
This tumblr is basically a melting pot of things I find inspiring, funny or thought-provoking, mainly pop-culture, illustration, architecture, music, movies, books, the beach, feminism, dogs and Adventure Time.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line! Or if you're just bored and want someone to bother because you're too lazy to go to the shops and fix yourself dinner, either way's fine with me. Have a smashing day!
"Why must it be “disabled”
Why not differently abled
Everyone is able…
You just have different ways"
I get that you’re trying to be helpful or nice or something
but you disabled is not a bad word. It’s not an insult, it’s not un-pc (or whatever the fuck) , it’s doesn’t mean un-able so much as prevented-from-being-able
As in society is set up to ignore the needs of people with disabilities.
If disabled people choose to self identify with differently abled, or disAbility, or whatever pc nightmare some well meaning able-bodied NT made up, that’s fine. But just like you shouldn’t apply a sexuality or gender label to someone without asking them first, don’t invalidate disabled people by policing word choice.
I spent years running from the “disabled” title despite my disabilities, because I associated it with many negative stereotypes. And every time someone says “it’s not disabled it’s _____” you are intimating that ‘disabled’ is a bad word, and something to be ashamed of, and that’s complete and utter hokum.
