Anonymous asked: If Lavrene Cox isn't influential because she's on a TV show then why aren't all you people mad that Benedict Cumberbatch, John Green and Carrie Underwood are all on the list? All they did was star in a movie and a TV series with three episodes a season, write some really bad books and write a song about fucking up a cheaters car six years ago and judge on American Idol. (Respectively). So if they're influential for just that then how is someone advancing human rights NOT influential?
It’s thinly veiled transmisogyny. Think they’re getting away with it but NOOOOPE.
this anon is everything
that was me but I couldn’t send it on this blog and I ran out of room to sign
YES. You were so on point.
Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.
Wow this video is so fucking disgusting.
this might be my favorite gif

‘political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.
On April 3, over 500 University of California Los Angeles workers, teachers, undergraduate and graduate students participated in an organized union strike that took to the streets ending in a mass sit-it at the Chancellor’s Office.
The one- day strike was organized by UCLA graduate student employees represented by UAW Local 2865 to demand an end to the vast expansion of class sizes and workloads on Teaching Assistants, to demand a formal meeting with UCLA Chancellor Gene Block, to demand an immediate end to police intimidation and brutality used to discourage union protests, and to stand in solidarity with the 22 student protesters arrested at UC Santa Cruz the previous day. However, hundreds of workers, undergraduate students, and teachers came not only to support the TAs, but, to protest working conditions, outrageous tuition, and corrupt financial practices that continually put the interests of the administration before the rights of the workers, students and teachers.
it would sure be great if ableism weren’t literally so ingrained into our society that 90% of the time when people are insulting a bigot they’ll go for the ableist slurs

Do you play video games? I’ll occasionally play grand strategy games and rpgs.
Do you have much of an ego? Not too big of an ego. I’ve been working on shrinking for awhile as I’m a buddhist.
Do you believe in soul mates? Not really, no. The concept just stinks of disney romance bullshit to me.
Do you prefer to text or call? I prefer to call, you get a higher degree of fidelity in your communication with the other person.
Do you suck or bite lollipops? I suck them for awhile, then bite them when they’re really, really think
Do you like long or short hair? I like long hair a lot! ^^
Do actions speak louder than words? Yep, yep, yep!
Do you correct people when they make mistakes? A good number of times, yes. How I correct them depends on my opinions of them.
Do you post mainly reblogs, or your own content? Aside from the occasional personal shit post, it’s mostly reblogs. I’ll comment on stuff though now and then.
Do you ever play board games or other non-computer games? I used to play risk a lot when I was younger. I had a tendency to turtle up in Australia. On the bright side, defensible position. On the downside, you’ll get worn down eventually by your opponents.
