Since I haven’t seen any posts about it on Tumblr, I figured I’d make the post myself! #heardwhilstdisabled is a trending hashtag on twitter, has been on-and-off for awhile obviously, and it’s about the common, casual microagressions the disabled of all stripes have to deal with. It’s UK- and AU-based primarily from the looks of it but I would think it applies to most disabled people - I certainly know I’ve heard my share of this kind of ableism. Here’s more tweets (source is The Indepedant):

@DamonLord #heardwhilstdisabled “that’s so sad. That baby will grow up with a blind father. We should call Social Services on them” About me and my son

@Imbecillis #heardwhilstdisabled Person: “You don’t look disabled…” Me: “I’m sorry I didn’t realise the neon sign was compulsory these days.”

@usherchic2 #heardwhiledisabled so do you just tell your guide dog the plan for the day in the morning & he sorts it all out? Me:……

@supermattachine #heardwhilstdisabled “Hahahaha it’s so funny when you freak out when I come up behind you”

This is absolutely disgusting

Jesus Christ, we have real live actual Nazis walking around the place. That’s fucking disturbing. They should be the ones to be sterilised.

These are all so terrible, but there’s something I’d like to call attention to at the same time and it comes from a specific one of these

@RedRubyGem #heardwhilstdisabled My housebound daughter was told if she didn’t attend interview at job centre her benefits would be stopped

This is now how welfare now works in the UK

It is absolutely ableist and completely insane and needs to be reversed

Depending on the benefits recieved, people who are unable to work are expected to somehow make a weekly trip to the Job Centre

Oh yeah it’s absolutely fucking disgusting. The Tories are largely responsible for perpetuating the views above as well, because it suits their agenda.

The one thing that really irks me about this whole GamerGate argument, is us on this side of the fence getting called misogynists for getting angry about Sarky and Quinn

We literally don’t care that they’re women. That’s not the problem. It’s what they’ve done that’s the problem. Why is that so hard to grasp?

"Stop attacking me! You must hate women!"

"You only disagree because I’m black!"

"I bet if I was straight you wouldn’t tell me I’m wrong!"

It’s like they fail to grasp the thing that they’re constantly telling everyone else to grasp. What a failed ideology. Is that the case, do you not understand? Or are these singular aspects of your identity shields to grant you freedom to be, say and do terrible things?

Yet more of my wizard professor, who has a poodle familiar which follows him everywhere.

I should probably mention that my school also has an astronomy tower decorated with alchemy symbols.

Where the hell do you go to school?
