te amo?? more like te quila

So this is excellent because it’s a play on “tequila” AND a correct conjugation of “quilar” meaning “to fuck”

I literally just choked on my actual tea. :D

I read through the comments and saw that no one named everyone, so let me take care of that (pardon the brevity, this is off the top of my head).

Row 1 (left to right):

1. Marsha P. Johnson. Trans legend, present at Stonewall, co-founder of STAR along with Sylvia Rivera, a kind of beaming godmother to the movement.

2. Chelsea Manning. Leaked information to show illegal/immoral activities the U.S. government was engaged in. Came out as trans while in prison and came out of prison seemingly full of joy and hope.

3. Reina Gossett. An amazing NYC based artist and activist who worked at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project and, among other things, found and posted the now iconic video of Sylvia Rivera at the 1973 Gay Liberation rally. She’s now working on a narrative film about Marsha P. Johnson.

Row 2:

4. Janet Mock. Brilliant writer and journalist whom many of us credit for the recent phase of the trans moment because of her dedication to openly celebrating and sharing space with other trans people. Her first two books, Redefining Realness and Surpassing Certainty are must reads.

5. Caitlyn Jenner. Ridiculously famous trans woman.

6. Sylvia Rivera. Where to even start? If you’re going to read about one person on this list, it should be Sylvia. No one better represents the struggle and resilience and indomitable spirit of the best parts of the trans movement than her. At the very least check out her Wiki here.

Row 3:

7. Leslie Feinberg. Activist and writer of Stone Butch Blues and Transgender Warriors. Hard to easily describe their identity since he noted how gender was contextual, but around other trans people, he liked masculine pronouns.

8. Miss Major. A powerful force, Miss Major has been loudly advocating for, and personally taking care of, trans people since the days of Stonewall. There’s a new and wonderful documentary about her, Major!, which you can learn more about here, as well as request that it come to your school.

9. Jennicet Gutiérrez. A bold activist particularly focused on trans immigrants and incarceration, Jennicet came to public attention when she interrupted a speech by President Obama to draw attention to the abuse of trans women in detention centers.

thank god for the mythbusters though because it used to be that whenever i knew i had insomnia i’d just kind of accept it and stay up doing whatever until my morning classes and spend the day feeling like shit

but then they did an episode where they established that even just fucking laying there for a half hour, not even sleeping just laying there and not even for an hour, makes a significant difference and you’ll feel way better

it has made a huge difference in my life to know that it’s okay if i can’t fall asleep, it takes a lot of the pressure off and ironically helps me fall asleep better

…i did not know this, thank you

If anyone wants to look it up, the episode was specifically the Deadliest Catch crossover ep, and the myth was that it’s better/safer when working a 30 hour shift to take a 20 minute nap every six hours rather than try to power through. They did an obstacle course test, one without naps and one with, and even though they couldn’t even sleep half the time the naps resulted in their scores doubling.

So actually I undersold it, even if it’s 7:40 and your alarm goes off at 8 just lie down and shut your eyes and it will still be better than nothing

This is what my mom always tells me: “You’ll rest even when you’re just lying down”. Good to know for everyone who has problems sleeping.

Like, 90% of infomercial style products were designed by/for disabled people, but you wouldn’t know that, because there is no viable market for them. THey have to be marketted and sold to abled people just so that any money can be made of off them and so the people who actually need them will have access.

I think snuggies are the one example almost everyone knows. They were invented for wheelchair users (Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a coat on and off of someone in a wheelchair? Cause it’s PRETTY FUCKIN HARD.) But now everyone just acts like they’re some ~quirky, white people thing~ and not A PRODUCT DESIGNED TO MAKE PEOPLES DAY TO DAY LIVES 10000X EASIER.

But if at any point you were to take your head out of your own ass and go “Hey, who would a product like this benefit,” that would be really cool.

This makes informational make so much sense now.

Like… of course there’s no reason for that guy to knock over that bowl of chips. However, the person it was actually designed for has constant hand tremors that would make this pretty rad, but since we don’t want to show that in a commercial, here’s an able bodied guy who can’t remember how gravity works.

Shit. Those commercials suddenly get a lot less funny when you realize it’s pretty much just people ineptly trying to mimic disability.

Or like the thing for the eggs? Like, oh, it cracks eggs perfectly, you only need one hand?

IT WAS DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WHO ONLY HAVE THE USE OF ONE HAND.

Or the juice bottle pourer? For people who’re TOO LAZY TO POUR THEIR OWN JUICE? Or FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY BEARING WEIGHT IN THE HANDS.

It’s amazing how with just a few words by a few people, my whole perspective on something can shift entirely. 

I feel so ignorant for never having realized this before.

Don’t feel bad. You’re not supposed to realize it, since the collective conscious isn’t supposed to realize disabled people are sentient and therefore can be advertised at.

This is why I hate those buzzfeed articles that have these products featured and the title is something like “for the laziest people ever” like For example, a device to pick up your sock and put it on your foot with minimal bending over ( http://youtu.be/9GFOqlAmJUc ) , it would take more effort than it’s worth for an able bodied person, but for someone who is disabled, it’s super helpful. These products are not even meant for able people to use, that’s why when they see them they think it’s ridiculous.

yeah it took me forever to realize this too. those buzzfeed articles feel especially weird now because i actually have some of those products - not because i’m lazy, but because it actually allowed me to do more within the constraints of my chronic illness

They can’t afford our silence. Talk about this to everyone.
