Was wir tun ist genug.

I HATE the kind of (intentionally or not) ableist shit that is non-affected ~sane saviour~ getting angry at people for supposedly faking and/or romanticising a mental illness/atypical neurotype!

meereschristophers:

Don’t they realise this shit hurts real people who are affected WAY more than toxic people and fakes? Even more so than fakers hurt us… Because it basically says: If you are mentally ill/neuroatypical, you HAVE to be miserable at all times, only use medical terminology to describe youself/your experiences, hate every part of your life that is affected by your mental illness/neurotype (WHICH IS USUALLY EVERY PART OF OUR LIVES) and preferably hide it in shame and pretend to be neurotypical and mentally healthy, otherwise you’ll be accused of faking and/or romanticising!

It’s just another way to keep us in our place: Miserable, ashamed, hidden, dependent, subjugated to medical interpretations, treatments and ways of talking about and contextualising our experience! Instead of taking things into our own hands and using our own words and celebrating our successes and our lives and just having fun, you know. Because we sometimes want to have fun, too, it’s not just for neurotypicals.

Doing that shit is not how you ally. If you want to be an ally, DO NOT talk over those you pretend to care about. Do not make them afraid of seeming too happy or too unusual.

There are lists with tips on how to actually be an ally (these are only a few of those that I found real quick).

The stonewall riots were started by trans women of colour and nobody is allowed to forget that

Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera didn’t march so that you could be transmisogynt and cissexist.

It’s possible to live comfortably with DID just like any other mental disorder, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You work hard with your system to get where you are and be as functional as you are. If someone opposes that, ignore them. They have no right to tell you how to live.

My friend asked me how many people on tumblr really watch Star Trek on a regular basis.

Ignore for a soul-crushing sense of being alone in the universe.

If you’re looking to send things to Ferguson protesters, send them here:

If the only problem with Rocky Horror was that it used the word transvestite I wouldn’t give a fuck but the only trans woman coding character in the entire movie is a villain, torturer, murderer (who fed the body of one of their victims to other victims) and a rapist.

Catch the fuck up

when people say that raising the minimum wage will hurt workers because of layoffs or inflation they’re really just admiting that capitalism is structurally unable to provide an adequate standard of living for the working class

Boom.

The subscription counts for many of the accused YT abusers haven’t significantly changed since the allegations against them broke. By unsubscribing from their accounts, we decrease their power/reach and we send them the message that we will no longer support abusive behavior

Pollution Linked To Lethal Sea Turtle Tumors

DURHAM, N.C. — Pollution in urban and farm runoff in Hawaii is causing tumors in endangered sea turtles, a new study finds.
The study, published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed open-access journal PeerJ, shows that nitrogen in the runoff ends up in algae that the turtles eat, promoting the formation of tumors on the animals’ eyes, flippers and internal organs.
Scientists at Duke University, the University of Hawaii and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) conducted the study to better understand the causes behind the tumor-forming disease Fibropapillomatosis, which is the leading known cause of death in green turtles, said Kyle Van Houtan, adjunct associate professor at Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment.
“We’re drawing direct lines from human nutrient inputs to the reef ecosystem, and how it affects wildlife,” said Van Houtan, who is also a scientist in NOAA’s Turtle Research Program.
This research builds on a study published in 2010 that found the disease was more prevalent in areas with high levels of nitrogen runoff. That study hypothesized the disease might be linked to how algae that the turtles eat store extra nitrogen, and designed this study to test that idea.
“In this paper we drill down on whether excess nitrogen inputs are causing a nutrient cascade in the system that’s ending up in these tumors in green turtles,” said Van Houtan.
