Funky Y-2-C by The Puppies

Oh, the 90s… lol

I never knew it at the time this song was out, but this group was from Florida! It makes me wonder how widespread this song got, or if it was just a Florida/Southeast thing? Hmmm…

At one hearing, a blind woman tearfully explained how she lost a prestigious scholarship opportunity after her GPA fell because her reader was laid off. That classroom assistance was essential because math figures needed verbal translation.

Another mobility-impaired student testified that losing transportation services made moving between campus buildings extremely painful. It also affected her grades when attending some classes became impossible.

Disabled Community College Students Fight Budget Cuts in Classroom AT and Other Academic Supports

Funding for California community colleges was cut by 10%. Funding to disabled student services at California community colleges was cut by 40%.

(via disabilityhistory)

And yet professors at Universiry of California at Berkley gets paid over $100k

(via the-redhead-in-a-dress)

I guarantee you that you teachers at California community colleges - which are not the same as UC Berkeley - do not normally make $100k.

But even at big research universities, faculty salaries have been stagnant since 2000, while administrative hiring - positions that usually pay much more than actual teaching/professor jobs - increased 28% over the same time span.

Somehow, these administrative “student service” positions don’t end up providing services that students desperately need - like disability services.

shit i’d watch this so damn hard

Seriously, 12 straight men acting as gay as humanly possible, I would die.

As much as I tend to dislike the “trap strangers in a house with cameras filming 24/7 and see what happens” type of reality TV, I feel like this show would be a total guilty pleasure for me.
I also feel like it could be interesting from a sociological/psychological view point, by offering the chance to examine the deeply ingrained stereotypes people harbor within themselves that would likely come to the surface while trying to “pass” as gay.
Or, you know, it could turn out to just be really awful and unwatchable. *shrug*

Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.

Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.

Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.

Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.

"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"

But u can always fore-go it and get a job if u think ur disability could tolerate it. I'm just saying be thankful u get anything, imagine if u were in a third world country. Then you knock them saying they don't consider you a person? Sorry life isn't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a disability, makes life harder whether we like to admit it or not. Vent

I debated on whether or not to dignify this with a response but because I know your views are common I’ll speak not just to you but to all watching who has been thinking the same thing.

First things first, what is the extent of my disability and what does that mean when it comes to work and SS. I have a terminal, degenerative mutation which means my body gets weaker and sicker until it can’t maintain life anymore. At this point I have very little body movement, I can’t type (I’m using voice recognition software,) I can’t bath or feed myself. I can’t even drive my wheelchair some days and I only have so much energy some days to swallow or even speak.

That wasn’t always true. When I got out of high school I was well enough to work a desk job or something but there is no compromise with SS. There was no option to get a little less assistance while I worked and then more as I slowly died. They told me not to even try it because my SS would get pulled and getting it back would be a miracle so when I reached this point there would be nothing for me.

Worse, I obviously need a caretaker and that is my mom; the government gives me $600 a month to give her as payment but unlike an actual job she can’t work any other job or that $600 gets pulled. Not even a job in the house. That $600 is supposed to be for her food, housing, and all her bills. Impossible. That’s why we both live off the money I get. Why doesn’t she get a real job? Because I need a 24 hour caretaker. Why not hire a caretaker? Because they don’t work for $600. That would be inhumane.

Speaking of…

You seem to think that I’m being facetious when I say the government doesn’t see me as a human; I am not.

When I was a baby I had to be reported to the government because I wasn’t a child, I was a ward of the state. My parents kept me and had no government assistance but because I was born disabled I was the state’s. I got my own file and where it asked for my identification they stamped RETARD.

I wasn’t allowed to enroll in public school, I was allowed to go to public school classes as a gift to me as long as I did what was required of me, that being social and medical experiments. I almost lost when I refused to be sterilized as I approach puberty. I got lucky because they got a defiant reaction from my family and things were changing in the 90s, they didn’t want it to go to the news. They didn’t want you people to know the government still systematically sterilizes “people.” My classmate’s families did not refuse the treatment.

This still goes on.

I think I gave you a good look at how I’m still not being treated like other adult citizen but let me put a fine point on it…

If I am raped it is considered a “crime against humanity” which is what having sex with an animal is seen as. The convictions are usually heavier on bestiality and if my rapist is a medical professional or care taker it doesn’t get reported.

If I am murdered by a stranger it isn’t a hate crime and, again, the conviction likens me unto an animal.

If I am murdered by a caretaker there is no crime. The court sees this as putting me out of my misery and empathizes with my murderer for having to deal with me on behalf of the state.

But as you said, I could be born in a third world country. So fuck me, right? God bless America.

I’m just saying be thankful u get anything, imagine if u were in a third world country.

So because someone else in another country might have it worse off than you means you aren’t allowed to call out the genuine mistreatment you receive in your own country? Are we just supposed to completely ignore the problems that are on our own doorstep for the sake of focusing on problems that are half a world away? Surely it must be possible to acknowledge these issues on both a local and international scale without diminishing or belittling one over the other.
