I’m doing a Philosophy paper on Asexuality. Please reblog if you think Love without Sex is possible! I really need the data. Like if you think love has to have sex.
(ps. I’m also posting something similar to Aven on Monday. Also, please only like or reblog, not both. Also using this as a very very loose guide-line, stop getting your panties in a twist, it’s not going to be my only source)
Another myth that is firmly upheld is that disabled people are dependent and non-disabled people are independent. No one is actually independent. This is a myth perpetuated by disablism and driven by capitalism - we are all actually interdependent. Chances are, disabled or not, you don’t grow all of your food. Chances are, you didn’t build the car, bike, wheelchair, subway, shoes, or bus that transports you. Chances are you didn’t construct your home. Chances are you didn’t sew your clothing (or make the fabric and thread used to sew it). The difference between the needs that many disabled people have and the needs of people who are not labelled as disabled is that non-disabled people have had their dependencies normalized. The world has been built to accommodate certain needs and call the people who need those things independent, while other needs are considered exceptional. Each of us relies on others every day. We all rely on one another for support, resources, and to meet our needs. We are all interdependent. This interdependence is not weakness; rather, it is a part of our humanity.
I find it huge, too, that people don’t look at glasses and think of them as accessibility. Keep in mind that glasses are a comparatively recent human invention and their prevalence is much more recent. If you needed spectacles in the 1700s, well, you might get them but not unless you were a certain type of person in a certain type of place. Same in the 1800s and the 1900s…
What I think is telling about this is that glasses are critical to many peoples’ ability to do their daily jobs…yet they don’t see themselves as using a basic accessibility device.(via beingruth)
Also, don’t run up to anyone’s dog and demand to pet it, or get in close or pet it without asking. That’s a real thing to genuinely be annoyed at.
That’s a good way to get a dog to lose its shit at you. A chill dog, a well-trained might cope. But can you tell?
Basically, if you don’t want someone greeting you that way, don’t greet a dog that way.
