Is it wrong that I’m going back on Monday instead of Saturday because it gives me more days to shop, knowing my mum will pay? Is it worse that I’m not going back any later because I want to be settled in to watch the new episode of PLL with everyone? I think so. I think so.

It’s fifteen years since Jeff Buckley died, and it feels morbid as hell drawing extra attention to dates like these because they’re really not the type I’d like to remember. Grace is usually on repeat, Dream Brother mostly, but not today. I don’t know. I guess it just isn’t a Jeff Buckley day.
Let me tell you a story:
non-disabled people: I've never met you before; can you have sex?
non-disabled people: But how do you have sex? Will you draw me a diagram?
non-disabled people: Wow you're so gross and unusual, I think I'll post your picture on facebook without your permission, and people will admire me for being a Good Person
non-disabled people: Here, let me touch you and violate your personal space without permission.
non-disabled people: Do you need help? No? Ok let me help you.
non-disabled people: Differently Abled
non-disabled people: "The only disability in life is a bad attitude"
non-disabled people: I'm taking disability studies this year. Let me tell you all about disability, and how you should feel about it.
non-disabled people: Disabled people should not want to have sex, because it offends me on a personal level and I believe that I have the right to dictate what other people do with their lives.
non-disabled people: But I have a disabled friend
non-disabled people: But I have a disabled child (...that I'm probably abusing)
non-disabled people: Disabled people are not productive members of society; they don't have a right to live.
non-disabled people: I broke my foot once, I understand.
non-disabled people: If I were you, I would want to be dead. You're so inspiring.
non-disabled people: Why are you so angry all the time?
non-disabled people: Why do you have a crowbar?

The seat of my chair is really padded
and when I sit down hard, all the air rushes out onto the back of my knees. Also, I have an exam at 9.00am tomorrow, and I don’t know what history is any more.
: Over Sensitive & Easily Offended →
racismschool: This line is a favorite of the bigot. The problem is, it’s backwards. It’s a great trick. It works because it’s a simple dismissal. If it’s you who are “Sensitive” or “Easily offended,” they are cleared of all wrong doing. Not only are they cleared of all wrong doing but they…

It's 22.10 at the moment.
I went to bed at 5.00, woke up 13.42, made a cheese sandwich and watched episode two of The L Word, and went back to sleep at 15.30. And then woke up again at 20.16. Then stayed in bed until about forty minutes ago. Thinking about how today was so early July 2009 and I was being a miserable little git doing nothing at all and telling myself that was better than being bad at revision for this...
Not at the racist, transphobic, classist issues -
but the real core of equality: when I hear people scoff at the word ‘feminism’ or ‘feminist’, I imagine them in an alleyway with their nearest and dearest, all trying to run away from this scary indefinable thing, and they’re pushing bins over behind them and blocking off escape pathways for their mothers/sisters/daughters/girlfriends/wives, etc.

Threw up a little inside.
I’ve developed this sort of rapport with the guy who works at the convenience store because we’re both Desi; I’ll walk in and he’ll ask me questions about favourite food, movies, etc. It’s really warm outside right now, so I was paying for my stuff and: Him: Too hot for you, yeah? Me: Mmm? Yeah, I guess. Him: You don’t like the sun? You like it more when...
There's nothing radical about transphobia →
cassie-cooties: Like many of you who have been discussing the issue on Twitter and Facebook today, I was angered to learn that a new UK conference for radical feminists, RadFem2012, is not only playing host to a well-known transphobe, but is actively excluding trans women from attending. The conference is open only to “women born women living as women”. Now, I personally support and fully...
