able body


I saw some people talking about the “Stiles comes back from college hot” trope, and it reminded me that I needed to make a seperate post for this fic!

Inspired by this post. (On AO3)

He’d been hoping for a reaction.

If he was being honest, he’d actually been anticipating a reaction.

While he’d been away at school, he’d started meeting people and making new friends. Some of those friends had turned out to be fitness guys, who loved running and working out. Stiles had ended up accompanying them on numerous gym trips, until eventually he liked it enough to just go, with or without them. He’d liked the feeling of being stronger, being able to trust his body to do what he wanted.

He’d become more confident with his looks, and started accepting invitations to parties. He’d started buying better-fitting clothes to show off his physique, and felt incredibly flattered when he was flirted with often. He’d kissed a lot of people, talked to a lot more, learned as much as he could, and even hooked up a few times.

Living Life On The Right posted a comment that disabled people aren't oppressed, which makes no sense to me, even if no one talks about disabled people, or don't talk about it as much as they should, I thought we all agreed disabled people are oppressed

Disabled people ARE oppressed. In the US, if you are disabled, you can legally be paid less than the federal minimum wage. Even with accommodations, it’s very hard to get access that makes us actually able to function in the way that able-bodied people do.

But no oppression here, right? ;)

ugh, now we got a pro life rightist saying disabled people aren't oppressed, people don't talk about ableism as it is, disabled people are oppressed and we do not need hateful people saying we aren't oppressed

Ugh, that’s the worst.

Ableism is a real thing, and disabled people are deff oppressed, and quite often. The amount of discrimination that can be found towards disabled people is - honestly - ludicrous. The amount of people I know that see disabled people as somehow ‘lesser’ people because of their disabilities is astonishing - in a bad way!

A Capitalistic society often views people based on what they can “give” to said society. Disabilities are often viewed in a very bad light because the person with the disability is viewed as someone who cannot give as much “to society” as an able bodied person can. Thus, they are often seen as “lesser” to able bodied people. This is a bias. This is discrimination. There’s no argument about that. It’s basically the definition of discrimination, seeing someone as lesser for one of their “traits”. With discrimination often comes oppression.

This isn’t just for physical disabilities either, it’s for mental disabilities as well. Often those with a visible - in any way - disability are “more” discriminated against, yes, because one can see the disability easily/easier and discriminate because it’s obvious. However, if one tells someone about a disability - because it’s generally invisible - that can very often lead to many kinds of unconscious discrimination as well, once the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. I’ve had this happen to me often with my own inadvisable illnesses, both mental and physical.

Just look at the world, the amount of stigma there is for mental disabilities, mental health issues, and physical disabilities, the discrimination is obvious. The oppression stems from that. Employers often do not want to employ people with disabilities. They often do not want to give them accommodations. The world is made for able bodied people, not for those with disabilities, and they are often erased. Those accommodations that are given, are often given with spite and many people complain about disabled people getting accommodations, like those accommodations that the disabled need to function in one way or another, or need to have an easier time of it (aka be closer to working like an able boded person would be able too) are seen as “extras” or “hand outs” or “special” things that they get. When in fact, these accommodations are necessities, not hand outs or special help.

Here are some good articles if anyone wants to read some in depth explanations about oppression of disabled people that isn’t my quick summary here.

Hey. Thanks for posting a post-op pic of yourself. It's so nice to see someone who's not the typical skinny transman or enby person, y'know. I've been thinking about top surgery for a while now, so it's nice to see someone who looks more like me. Can I ask if you're on T, and why or why not (as this is something I'm more unsure of than the issue of top surgery)?

i try to be as visible as possible for just that reason, because it was damn near impossible to find pictures of people who look like me. i think it’s really important that people know the face of the trans community is not thin, white, able bodied skinny people.

i’ve been on testosterone since september of 2016. it was something i struggled with more than my decision to have top surgery as well. i have no desire to pass as a cis man, and i don’t think taking testosterone makes a person trans masc (i vehemently deny anyone assuming i must be “masc” because i take testosterone). for me, i knew i’d be happier with a deeper voice, some facial hair, and a general change in the way my body is shaped, and i knew that could be achieved with testosterone.

i don’t plan to take it forever. probably a year, maybe two. as long as it keeps making me happy, i’m going to keep taking it :)

I hate that post going round that’s like “haha you wouldn’t tell a disabled guy he’s using his crutch as a crutch” ecause that very thing literally happens to people that use mobility aids.

I can’t count how many time people (including physiotherapists who’re supposed to be understanding and help me) have said “you need to stop relying on your crutches” and the like.

I literally had a physiotherapist remove my crutches from under me without my consent and tell me to walk.

And it’s not even a rare thing.

Wheelchair users get told they need to stop relying on their wheelchairs, cane users get told they shouldn’t rely on their canes etc.

I’m just so bored with the depression-centric ableism rhetoric, erasing the ableism people with physical and visable disabilities experience

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA ONE VERY LATE FANART– this sucks- being sick for 2 weeks sucks– :’‘‘y and i’m not feeling 100% better just yet– /cries/

If you’re straight, write stories with gay characters, but don’t write stories about being gay. That’s not your story to tell.

If you’re cis, write stories with trans characters, but don’t white stories about being trans. That’s not your story to tell.

If you’re allistic, write stories with autistic characters, but don’t write stories about being autistic. That’s not your story to tell.

If you’re neurotipical, write mentally ill characters, but don’t write stories about being mentally ill. That’s not your story to tell. 

If you’re able bodied, write stories with disabled characters, but don’t write stories about being disabled. That’s not your story to tell. 

If you’re white, write characters who are POC, but don’t write stories about being a POC. That’s not your story to tell 

Write stories with diverse and complex characters, but unless you’ve experienced the oppression that we have, don’t write the stories that we need to tell ourselves.

whoops my hand slipPeD,,
Okay I just wanted an excuse to draw peri making a terrible pickup line in those shadessueme

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

If you are different from the white straight neurotypical cis able-bodied “Hollywood standard” in multiple ways, if you are that “special snowflake with a million labels” that people make fun of, guess what? 

You’re 100% valid! 

You deserve representation! 

It’s understandable if you want to see characters in media that are like you! 

You are not “too much” or “too different”! 

And you certainly don’t need to listen to anyone who starts any argument with “In the real world..”. 

In the real world, there are people who are bi and trans and have a disability and are black. There are people who are gay and autistic and asexual. There are people who are trans and have chronic pain and have depression

There are many people who are part of multiple underrepresented groups, who face different kinds of discrimination all at once.

You deserve to have every part of you respected. 

Please don’t let anyone make you believe you only deserve respect if you hide some parts of yourself. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

Have you ever thought about how terrifying Molly Hooper actually is?

The girl’s got an encyclopedic knowledge of human anatomy and pathology that makes Sherlock jealous, regularly processes murder victims as part of her routine job, is closely acquainted with police investigative procedure and when she helped Sherlock fake his death she played her part so convincingly that Scotland Yard was completely fooled.

If she wanted, she could easily be the deadliest character on this show. Your ass is just lucky she prefers kittens and fluffy sweaters to recreational murder.
