hey there

here is a great website that outlines a lot of ableist language that people still use today, as well as talks about WHY these words are ableist and gives alternative words to use.

please read this page and phase ableist language out of your daily conversations, it does make a difference.

From the link:
One important note: Many people who identify with particular disabilities or disability in general may use descriptors from this list in an act of reclaiming the language. You may well too! BUT if you do not identify with a particular disability/disabled identity, it’s probably appropriative to use some of those terms.”

overtheunderpass:

I really love hearing people talk about what they’re passionate about

things like art or science or everything and anything in between

hearing someone rant with love and passion is so fantastic

to see their eyes widen and watch their hands move, hear their speech quicken and know their heart is beating faster because every bit of their body just cares so much

How DARE you try to defend gay rights and be some kind of advocate when you yourself are a bigot. I thought you were so open-minded and I thought maybe we could be friends, but after what happened today, I just lost hope for my generation and my hope for those within the LGBT community.
I thought, finally, there’s someone who believes sexuality is a large spectrum of identities, but ohhhh no no no.
It’s black and white to you, isn’t it?
To you, the world is just straight and gay, right?
In your own words, “I don’t believe that someone can be bisexual.”
Well, let me tell you something: By denying the existence of someone’s preference, you are denying them their right to an identity. By denying their right to identify as what they feel they are, you fit right back in with the close-minded heterosexuals whom you try to stand up against.
You are not someone who should try and lead the LGBTQ+ community because, hello, where’s the “B” to you? Just because you’re a lesbian doesn’t mean you automatically get a free ticket to becoming a gay rights spokesperson, especially if you don’t even accept a whole chunk of your cause.
No one gets left out, in my book.

Please, everyone who thinks being “fat” is “ugly,” listen:
It’s NOT. Be proud of what you have, and stop thinking that “skinny girls” are beautiful. Everyone can be beautiful. The way to start is to first EMBRACE YOURSELF AS YOU ARE. Confidence is way more sexier than just being thin. I’m not putting down thin girls, I’m just defending the people who actually get put down most of the time by all the various forms of media.There ARE people who will like you, and it won’t be “because you’re fat.” I know plenty of people who like women (and men) of all sizes because of their confidence and comfort with their appearance.So, please. Stop worrying. Stop hating.
