Watched more Buffy with my brother.
Crying over Willow and Terra.
So I had a job interview today.
I think it went okay.
I find out if I got it on Friday.
I’m sorta excited cause working at a book store would be cool.
the thing shouldn’t even exist
Too often, accessibility is considered an add-on to an event or space, rather than an integral part. It’s assumed that it’s only necessary to provide access if someone asks for it; and of course, no one asks, because everyone assumes it isn’t and won’t be provided. Announcements typically don’t provide information about what kinds of accommodations will be available, and people who are tired and stressed out don’t want to have to call to get information and then cross their fingers in the hopes that ‘accessibility’ means the same thing to the person on the other end of the line as it does to the caller; the migraineur calling to find out about video content isn’t just concerned, for example, about flashes that might trigger seizures in people with epilepsy.
Access is an add-on, it’s something special, and it’s something remarkable. In this sense, it becomes a way of singling out people who aren’t normative; ‘ah, you’re the one who needs the sign language interpreter.’ ‘I see you’re using a wheelchair.’ It is another reminder that a shared space is not truly shared, because some people are in it by tolerance only, and it would be easy to take that tolerance away and exclude them from the space. When accommodations are something special, they draw attention to the people who need them.” —
This. It’s so hard to ask.
There was a reblog of a post I wrote and now I can’t find it.
Ugh activity page don’t be dumb.
Oh well I guess I can’t respond now.
I like the fact that sillysj ignored my second reblog and is cool with ignoring people’s triggers.
Also: I have had experience being disabled or with ableism so what I am saying is okay.
No it’s not.
Anti-social justice blogs are the worst.
I regret my decision reblogging that post.
I mean it’s just a waste of time and energy really.
I don’t get anti-social justice blogs you don’t like social justice bloggers and you don’t agree with them so you go out of your way to confront them and start arguments with them.
I mean fine whatever.
You could just ignore it and go about your day.
It’s not like I can ignore my oppression.
