Disability doesn't come with extra time and energy

I’ve heard a lot of advocates of inclusion say things like “kids with disabilities work twice as hard as everyone else” or “my employees with Down’s syndrome never come in late or take a day off.”

This sounds like praise, but it isn’t.

The time disabled people spend working twice as hard as everyone else has to come from somewhere.

There are reasons why kids aren’t in school every waking moment. There is a reason why vacation time exists and why it’s normal to be late occasionally.

People need rest. People need leisure time. People have lives and needs and can’t do everything.

Being disabled doesn’t erase the need for down time. Being disabled doesn’t erase the need for play, or for connections to other people.

Working twice as hard as everyone else all the time isn’t sustainable. Praising disabled people for doing unsustainable things is profoundly destructive.

People with disabilities should not have to give up on rest, recreation, and relationships in order to be valued. We have limited time and energy just like everyone else, and our limitations need to be respected.

It is not right to expect us to run ourselves into the ground pretending to be normal. We have the right to exist in the world as we really are.

Imagine Loki having to sit and accept or deny a lot of female suitors because of a bet that Thor would be married before him. However, there’s one girl who keeps getting away because of her own abilities as a half demon half vampire. She happens to befriend Frigga, who’s ill and help her get better. One day she’s caught by the guards though because she hasn’t slept or eaten in days and has become weaker, finally meeting Loki when she is brought before Odin. Only then do the guards and Odin figure out that she can shapeshift into anything at will.

i would love for guan shan to go look for he tian without wearing the earring, not wanting he tian to think that he would give in so easily, and then by the end of the day it turns out that he actually had it with him all along in one of his pockets and he puts it on in front of he tian

Whatever everyone thinks about Liam and his ‘new’ style, performance, accent and music recently. I feel like this is 100% him and I’m really happy for him that he gets to do what he wants to do.
