Most common cause of death in Georgia is Russian invasion…

See Ursula? It is NOT Mothman in WVa

Mothman strongly resembles a small Balrog. I think they’ve just confused their taxonomy.

I love how the most common cause of death in Florida is Florida.

This is basically a post for people who think that the world is accessible for those who are disabled, although this is centred around those who use a wheelchair. 

And this doesn’t include when people park in disabled spaces without a badge, or question those who park in disabled spaces who don’t use a chair.

The first picture is of a disabled parking space, where the snow has been pushed into that space whilst people were clearing the car park. This also happens when snow ploughers push the snow to the side of the road and onto the pavement as it blocks the dipped down pavement where wheelchair users can get on/off of the pavement and most wheelchairs struggle to be able to push through the snow.

The second picture is of a lift/elevator in Boots a store in the UK, where there are baskets and cases in front of the lift, which block wheelchair users from using it and accessing other levels in the store.

The third picture is of a zebra crossing with a lowered pavement for wheelchair users, and there is an island in the middle with a normal height curb, which blocks wheelchair users, and it means they have to go around, along with having bollards near the entrance which don’t look wide enough to fit a wheelchair through.

The fourth picture is that of a ramp, which has a step in order to get onto the ramp. (I’m pretty sure they didn’t even try.)

The fifth picture is of a ramp with a tree in the middle, which doesn’t have enough room on either side for a wheelchair to get through.

The sixth picture is of a very very steep ramp, which even if you have someone pushing your chair you probably won’t be able to get up it!

The seventh picture is of a disabled parking space, which has a ramp leading to the entrance, which again has steps in order to access the ramp.

The eighth picture is of ‘disabled parking’, where non of the spaces have room to allow chairs to get out of the car, except at the back. They are just normal spaces where a blue sign has been placed in an attempt to make the parking ‘wheelchair accessible’.

The ninth picture is of a reception desk which is too high for wheelchair users to access, as they can’t be seen, due to the fact that they are smaller than the desk.

The final picture is of a ramp which only goes halfway up the curb, essentially meaning there is a step at the top of the ramp.

If anybody still thinks the world isn’t staked against those who are disabled, then I honestly worry about you.

You make good points, but you can’t say the world is actively against the disabled. There are a good many buildings who need to accommodate for them, and some haven’t for a myriad of reasons. Some places’ll do the bare minimum to keep the law from breathing down their necks, but that’s all.

However, this doesn’t mean that the ‘world is staked against’ the disabled. Some places have really nice accomodations, and other places go above and beyond. Let’s try not to generalize.

TLDR: disabled people do not have life handed to them on a plate, there are so many things that people could do to make our lives easier, but they don’t. things like the pictures above were a visual example, and the sad thing is, I found all these pictures on sites that stated they were hilarious. 

The world is staked against disabled people, and so are the people, and yes not everyone is, but stop implying that disabled people have it easy, but some of the world is actively against disabled people, and some of it isn’t, but when it comes down to it, disabled people have a hard time, and a lot have to fight for basic rights.

And I’m going to presume that you aren’t disabled, and I’m sorry for making an assumption, because I know better than anyone that invisible disabilities are all too common, so please don’t try to tell us what it’s like to live with a disability if you have no idea what it’s like yourself

TLDR: disabled people do not have life handed to them on a plate, there are so many things that people could do to make our lives easier, but they don’t. things like the pictures above were a visual example, and the sad thing is, I found all these pictures on sites that stated they were hilarious. 

The world is staked against disabled people, and so are the people, and yes not everyone is, but stop implying that disabled people have it easy, but some of the world is actively against disabled people, and some of it isn’t, but when it comes down to it, disabled people have a hard time, and a lot have to fight for basic rights.

And I’m going to presume that you aren’t disabled, and I’m sorry for making an assumption, because I know better than anyone that invisible disabilities are all too common, so please don’t try to tell us what it’s like to live with a disability if you have no idea what it’s like yourself

This is basically a post for people who think that the world is accessible for those who are disabled, although this is centred around those who use a wheelchair. 

And this doesn’t include when people park in disabled spaces without a badge, or question those who park in disabled spaces who don’t use a chair.

The first picture is of a disabled parking space, where the snow has been pushed into that space whilst people were clearing the car park. This also happens when snow ploughers push the snow to the side of the road and onto the pavement as it blocks the dipped down pavement where wheelchair users can get on/off of the pavement and most wheelchairs struggle to be able to push through the snow.

The second picture is of a lift/elevator in Boots a store in the UK, where there are baskets and cases in front of the lift, which block wheelchair users from using it and accessing other levels in the store.

The third picture is of a zebra crossing with a lowered pavement for wheelchair users, and there is an island in the middle with a normal height curb, which blocks wheelchair users, and it means they have to go around, along with having bollards near the entrance which don’t look wide enough to fit a wheelchair through.

The fourth picture is that of a ramp, which has a step in order to get onto the ramp. (I’m pretty sure they didn’t even try.)

The fifth picture is of a ramp with a tree in the middle, which doesn’t have enough room on either side for a wheelchair to get through.

The sixth picture is of a very very steep ramp, which even if you have someone pushing your chair you probably won’t be able to get up it!

The seventh picture is of a disabled parking space, which has a ramp leading to the entrance, which again has steps in order to access the ramp.

The eighth picture is of ‘disabled parking’, where non of the spaces have room to allow chairs to get out of the car, except at the back. They are just normal spaces where a blue sign has been placed in an attempt to make the parking ‘wheelchair accessible’.

The ninth picture is of a reception desk which is too high for wheelchair users to access, as they can’t be seen, due to the fact that they are smaller than the desk.

The final picture is of a ramp which only goes halfway up the curb, essentially meaning there is a step at the top of the ramp.

If anybody still thinks the world isn’t staked against those who are disabled, then I honestly worry about you.

You make good points, but you can’t say the world is actively against the disabled. There are a good many buildings who need to accommodate for them, and some haven’t for a myriad of reasons. Some places’ll do the bare minimum to keep the law from breathing down their necks, but that’s all.

However, this doesn’t mean that the ‘world is staked against’ the disabled. Some places have really nice accomodations, and other places go above and beyond. Let’s try not to generalize.

The reviews are IN!! 

If you haven’t watched the latest in “fad feminism propaganda” videos, boy, have I got one for you! 

I just re-watched the video. I know that youtube commenters are one step south of 4chan at times, but holy CRAP that was bad. If it helps, I reported a large portion of the more hateful comments as abuse. Is there anything else I can do to help try and facilitate a better conversation? I wouldn’t wish this upon my worst enemies, never mind comments for a video about trying to improve the quality of life for women.

I will never understand anti-feminists; they appear to be hateful, spiteful, and not really conducive to anything that doesn’t directly benefit them. I’m sorry that you (or anyone else) goes through this.

I might be completely misunderstanding what you’re saying, but it seems like you’re saying that, intrinsically, as human beings, we all deserve compassion. That is a common religious theme, seeing as many religions see people as God’s creations, which is a pretty special thing. But you’ve stated before that you aren’t religious, so where does this view come from? Why does everyone deserve compassion? (Note: I agree with you. I just don’t quite know why other than this gut feeling.)

I often have religious people ask me where my convictions and values come from, and for a long time I found that pretty insulting. The insinuation was that if I didn’t have an overseer telling me right from wrong, that I was somehow without the guidance necessary to live a non-depraved life. 

This was a pretty stupid way to look at the situation. Now I understand that, of course, if your worldview and your values are based on religion, it would be unclear where the values of people who don’t have that thing come from. 

My observation is that my values come from the exact same place as yours…living in the world and experiencing other people. When I observe religious people, I see them feel as if god and their holy books are a lens through which to discuss and understand the challenges we face as humans today. I’m sometimes envious of those lenses, as I feel like they allow for a focus that I don’t often have. Then again, occasionally that focus isn’t pretty.

And just because I’m not religious doesn’t mean religious ideas don’t resonate with me. There are a great number of wonderful ideas in religions from all over the world. One of the nice things about not being religious is that I get to pick and choose! I may not believe in god, but I’ve got a huge man crush on Jesus. He seems like a pretty cool dude.

I also have secular lenses through which to examine this stuff, though. I have found that humanity is marvelous. The beauty and complexity we have created is astounding and unique. And the majority of our decisions are based on love. You and I absolutely share a belief that being a human is a pretty special thing, from whence these beliefs spring, to me, is irrelevant.

Hi Hank! What do you think about writing a Harry Potter story about two (first year?) Hogwarts students (one born male and one born female) who realize they are transgender after seeing themselves in the mirror of erised?
