Merry Christmas Adam, everyone ♥

Ukpol, disability 

This is largely from something I posted elsewhere but it's been on my mind a lot lately and I'd like more people to read and consider it.

If you're using all the terrified disabled people as a stick to beat whichever opposing faction you take issue with, left included, stop.

I'm sick of being used as a cudgel against opponents when to most people we're an afterthought. It's how we were used repeatedly throughout this election and we've barely been considered outside of it.

"Look, I'm not claiming it was okay to fire them, I'm just suggesting that firing them was a reasonable thing to do. We can't judge the company for firing them, because the company employs people and those employees might be negatively affected by anything that happens to the company."

"Ryan studied the two females. The plump brunette, Dawn, was as short as Taryn, and strength seemed to radiate from her. This female was a born alpha. He also sensed that she was a cougar shifter. The dark, curvy female, Madisyn, had the sharpest eyes he’d ever seen."
