When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us. 

We mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.

We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards. 

Abled people just don’t get that.

HEY! HEYYYYYYYY!

This shit, just happened! I’m sure you all remember the case of Jordan Davis, the 17-year-old black boy who was shot at a gas station by Michael Dunn for playing his music too loudly. Well this just happened!

My thing with thug kitchen is tho

I think there’s a difference between clearly trying to imitate a black cadence i.e. iggy azeleia (if she had a dialect coach I would not be shocked)

And white people who have watched other white people imitating black people and thinking that’s what black peope sound like, i.e. thug kitchen.

One is a conscious appropriation and speech and dialect and cadence and the other is just reveling in your own ignorance
