“You’re gonna mistakes, you’re gonna make good friends and Mr. Feeny will probably teach you every grade you’re ever in. And maybe you’ll meet a woman as wonderful as Topanga, how’d you like that? And maybe you’ll make a friend like Shawn. But when you’re not a little boy anymore, when the world taught you how to be this man, you know, you’re still gonna make mistakes. But your family and your friends that you made along the way are gonna help you. Even thought it’ll seem like the world’s going out of it’s way to teach you these hard lessons, you’re gonna realize that it’s the same world that’s giving you your family and your friends, you know? And you’re gonna come to believe to believe that the world’s gonna protect you too. Boy Meets World. Now I get it.“
i love when some abled people act like a disabled person’s neccessities are privileges, or think that a disabled person getting what they need is special treatment.
yes, we have parking spaces, rest rooms, and elevators made for us, and we have accomoddations at work and school, we have a different way of getting around made for us. but the only way someone could see that as special treatment is if they never bothered to ask why we have them.
Because this world was made for abled people, not us, so we need to find a different way of living.
for every 50 abled parking spaces, theres one disabled parking space
for every ten abled bathrooms, theres one disabled bathroom
for every four staircases, theres one disability elevator.
we use them because we HAVE to, because this world was made for abled people, for you, and we dont fit so we get different treatment.
not better treatment, not special treatment, different treatment. it isnt a privilege to be so erased that out of 50 parking spaces, you can only use one that is actually helpful to you.
but my personal fav with a lot of abled people is that they have the world made for them, they have 50 parking spaces to choose from, And they still choose to take the disabled one
they have four staircases made for them, but choose to take the disabled elevator,
they have so many bathrooms.to choose from.and they STILL choose to use the disability bathroom.
Abled people have everything made for them, yet some still choose to take what little disabled people have away, because they see our neccessities as a privilege
the life of an abled person is so easy in this aspect that theyll use a disabled parking space, disabled elevator, disabled bathroom because they dont even have to think about the horrible concequences it causes, because their actions wont affect them, but the disabled person who will need that parking, that elevator, that bathroom and not have it,
y'all wanna talk about privilege? about special treatment? well, THAT, my guy, is privilege
No, not your rules. You work at the behest of a system so broken that you didn’t even notice when it became corrupted at its core. When I first broke your rules, a sitting President had authorized assassination squads in Laos and the head of the FBI had ordered his men – you – to conduct illegal surveillance on his political rivals. Your rules have changed every time it was convenient for you.
I was talking about my rules. I have lived by those rules for so long, believed in them for so long, believed that if you played by the right rules, eventually you would win… but I was wrong, wasn’t I? And now all the people I cared about are dead, or will be dead soon enough. And we’ll be gone without a trace.
So now I have to decide… decide whether to let my friends die, to let hope die, to let the world be ground under your heel… all because I played by my rules.
I’m trying to decide. I’m going to kill you. But I need to decide how far I’m willing to go, how many of my own rules I’m willing to break, to get it done…
I wasn’t talking to you.”

When I woke up this morning I wasn’t expecting 99+ inbox notifications full of love, support, and validation! Thank you all so much for the kind messages… I rlly wish I could reply to all of them with the same amount of love. I read all of them and appreciate each and every one of them!! Unfortunately, because i AM resting my hand from drawing for the time being, I only have an old sketch as something akin to a thank you drawing haha
Sketch of Alana wearing Zoe’s t-shirt based on @neglectedrainbow’s “Dear Evan Hansen Drabbles”. Y'all should definitely check them out if you haven’t already, they’re so cute!!!! Thank you so much for the request @neglectedrainbow, you’re literally my fav person in the whole world!!
Y'all legit be thinking this hector hair situation is deeper than it is. White people in cornrows has been cultural appropriation far before hector got it in his mind to do this dumb shit, it’s been said 10 thousand times, if you need an explanation literally click on the little safari icon on your iPhone and type in “cornrows cultural appropriation” and you’ll find at least a dozen well written articles about it that will spell it out for you with more patience and care than I will. People don’t have to hold your hand and constantly teach you things. You have the ability to teach yourself.
That being said, you don’t have to defend your favs for everything they do. Is hector the worst person in the world? No, not at all, he just did something dumb and looks dumb af doing it. That doesn’t mean y'all have to write 10 page MLA cited essays on why you think it’s not wrong because you’re actually wrong and you’re talking over millions of black people who have said a thousand times over that it’s wrong. Please chill. Y'all are so fuckin annoying.
