the dude who pulls out a cigarette in front of a girl with lung cancer and then acts like sir dickweed mcfucklamp when she doesn’t understand the worst metaphor on earth seems to be tumblr’s newest squeeze


i just want to know why lgbtq* actors and actresses aren’t allowed to play actual lqbtq* characters in major films

and why do we always have to fucking commend cishet actors for their ‘strength’ and ‘brilliance’ and ‘bravery’ for playing lgbtq* characters, when we live the shit e v e r y s i n g l e d a y.

like congratufuckinglations for stepping off your fucking pedestal and blessing us with a subjective interpretation of my own reality, but i’d really appreciate it if i didn’t have to find representation from mainstream films vicariously through straight men.

I got a verbal disciplinary action at work because I couldn't call in sick even though I text - I have a seizure disorder so it's just not always possible for me-- am I an idiot for thinking this is kind of discrimination? It's something that's not always an actual possibility for me And I feel like they want to get rid of me Because of my illness.

i’m so sorry that that happened, anon :(

unfortunately, i’m not really familiar with workplace accommodations and/or regulations, but you could try looking on the ADA website, as they might have some resources or information for you.

does anyone else know of anything that might help…?

hello again, thank you so much for your reply! i'm glad i could make your week. :) considering it now, i think i may go through with the idea of and i'd like to take you up on your offer of advice regarding disability. is there anything you'd advise right off the bat, or particularly want to be avoided, etc? thanks so much for extending a hand!

hmmm, considering you’re just drawing them, i’d say it’s most important just to keep it respectful and realistic; in the sense that, obviously they’ll look ‘cartoon-y’, but realistic in the sense that they actually look disabled [if it’s a physical disability like an amputee, SCI, someone with CP using a mobility aid, a little person, and so on - obviously this doesn’t apply to mental or cognitive disabilities or physical/chronic illnesses…unless you’d like to show that somebody with, say, an IV pole or ventilator can still do great or powerful things, which i think would be awesome :)], so, if you need reference i’d try either googling different disabilities you’d like to draw, or even well-known people with that disability. i don’t think you would, but i think it’s important to stress that respect should be given in the sense that these people shouldn’t be a perceived caricature of their disability, and therefore, insulting and ableist. other than that, i’d just advise to go wild and have fun! :D

No dont be anxious about using the spot if you have a placard!! If you do then it's your right. I look pretty abled to (besides my limp that is probably easily faked, unfortunately its real) but you know what, if abled people do say something it's your chance to educate them. If they are rude then they are rude. You can't control other people's emotions. Do what you have to do. Maybe they are just having a bad day and are angry bc they have a disabled relative & know about people who abuse spots

journalgirl in regards to your saying that you get nervous about your placard

though, i would argue that it’s not our job to educate abled people, nor do they have the right to take out on abled people the fact they might be having a bad day - as though we were punching bags and not people.
