stop-ignoring-it

it’s always amazing to watch adults discover how much changes when they don’t treat their perspective as the default human experience.

example: it’s been well-documented for a long time that urban spaces are more dangerous for kids than they are for adults. but common wisdom has generally held that that’s just the way things are because kids are inherently vulnerable. and because policymakers keep operating under the assumption that there’s nothing that can be done about kids being less safe in cities because that’s just how kids are, the danger they face in public spaces like streets and parks has been used as an excuse for marginalizing and regulating them out of those spaces.

(by the same people who then complain about kids being inside playing video games, I’d imagine.)

thing is, there’s no real evidence to suggest that kids are inescapably less safe in urban spaces. the causality goes the other way: urban spaces are safer for adults because they are designed for adults, by adults, with an adult perspective and experience in mind.

the city of Oslo, Norway recently started a campaign to take a new perspective on urban planning. quite literally a new perspective: they started looking at the city from 95 centimeters off the ground - the height of the average three-year-old. one of the first things they found was that, from that height, there were a lot of hedges blocking the view of roads from sidewalks. in other words, adults could see traffic, but kids couldn’t.

pop quiz: what does not being able to see a car coming do to the safety of pedestrians? the city of Oslo was literally designed to make it more dangerous for kids to cross the street. and no one realized it until they took the laughably small but simultaneously really significant step of…lowering their eye level by a couple of feet.

so Oslo started trimming all its decorative roadside vegetation down. and what was the first result they saw? kids in Oslo are walking to school more, because it’s safer to do it now. and that, as it turns out, reduces traffic around schools, making it even safer to walk to school.

so yeah. this is the kind of important real-life impact all that silly social justice nonsense of recognizing adultism as a massive structural problem can have. stop ignoring 1/3 of the population when you’re deciding what the world should look like and the world gets better a little bit at a time.

yall like to ignore alana, connor, and jared’s mental illnesses bc you cant make them look “cute” like how you make evan’s look “cute”

people wanna act like adhd is just forgetting shit all the time but you guys need to stop ignoring our emotional volatility/vulnerability, rejection sensitive dysphoria, the high comorbidity with substance use and depression and suicidal ideation like… adhd is not pretty. it’s not fun. lots of us are miserable all the time and we’re difficult to be around and we tend to have very complicated psych profiles that mimic a lot of aspects of bpd and bipolar. adhd is god damn complicated stop trying to sideline it

one of them 15 minute marvel specials about tony and rhodey fighting a really simple embarrassing villain where tbh they’d win in like two minutes but it takes 15 because they are too busy bickering amongst themselves about whether they should get donuts or bagels for breakfast

Can y'all not forget that the girl who plays Supergirl is incredibly fucking racist and did brown face and played a fucking Muslim terrorist in a blockbuster movie like this year? Like it’s not hard stop ignoring it

This is psychological torture for white people. (x

Remind me again how Black people are too sensitive because I swear that’s what they keep telling me whenever I get upset at the justice system for railroading people who look like me or the media for the way they talk about the Obamas or our legislators for pandering to constituents who would still vote for Jim Crow laws.  I’m too sensitive when those things upset me but this is psychological torture for white people.

If you’re white and you can’t take this lil piece of reflection from an anonymous messageboard, you would not last six hours as a Black person in America.  I get worse than this from people in positions of power as soon as I turn on the television.  I had to watch My First Lady being called a man by actual political commentators with an audience of millions.  The sitting President of the United States is endorsed by the KKK, a terrorist group that has killed thousands of Black people.  But a few pieces of paper that simply call for white folks to recognize our humanity, treat us as equals, and stop ignoring the effects of history is psychological torture.

"BUT ABLEISM ISNT AS BAD AS RACISM/SEXISM/OTHER FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION, THATS WHY WE DONT TALK ABOUT IT AS MUCH!!!1"

1. yes it is, if you actually dont think so youre either wildly ignorant or ableist, or both.

2. dont compare who has it worse as a way to excuse silence/erasure/acceptance of ableism, thats ableist.

3. if you dont include ableism in your social justice, and your thought of equality simply because you dont think its “as bad” as other forms of discrimination and inequality, stop.fighting for social.justice cause youre doing it wrong my guy, and excluding disabled people in this way makes you ableist.

4. if you think this, youre ableist and need to get your shit together.

5. Ableism exists, stop excusing it, stop erasing it, stop accepting it, stop ignoring it, stop excluding us. STOP. BEING. ABLEIST.

“Ed had to struggle without his right hand-” Yeah ok but let’s not forget Al had to learn to function without any sense of touch and also being much bigger than he used to be, and of course he wasn’t the injured one so I’m sure he didn’t get as much attention and help as he deserved

Do not fucking underestimate how much Al went through he’s so much stronger than people give him credit for

necrojade  asked:

  • related: he’s probably the best older brother i bet he took his younger siblings to the beach and stayed w them all day and played with them and made sand castles and sand mermaids with them
  • literally puts his life in danger regularly to save people ???  the explosion and air vacuum thingie scenes come to mind. god he’s so good
  • that being said he can be kinda selfish (literally manipulated hunk into leaving his lion and coming w him to investigate mermaids just bc he likes mermaids) and i love that about him, i love that he’s not a perfect good boy, i wish the fandom would stop ignoring this tbh tbh
  • the entire scene in s2 where he was talking abt their plan and like, did amazing imitations. shook his butt. dabbed. literally morphed into a strange galra-humanoid thing for the sake of The Drama™
  • “that’s the tagline from like six of my favourite movies” lance is a big nerd confirmed
  • his fucking pickup lines are so funny? they’re so bad they’re good. i’d fall for them lance. i’d fall for them
  • takes the time to explain stuff when keith doesnt understand, like, they could have easily just made him make fun of keith for not getting the “vol” “tron” thing but he instead explains it 
  • also good at diffusing situations and thinking things thru *insert that god i wish that were me meme*
  • *talks fondly about his team and then immediately shits on himself* relatable tbh (but i wish he wouldnt)
  • god, his insecurities are so real they’re palpable. i think a lot of people can see themselves in him bc of them and that’s really cool
  • “is…that a cow” “mmhmmm” 
  • arguably the only paladin with any semblance of fashion sense
  • AND ON THAT NOTE HE’S A MALE CHARACTER WHO’S SHOWN TO LOVE SKINCARE UNABASHEDLY and that’s not something you ever see in media and as a cosmetician IT’S REALLY COOL BECAUSE NOW LITTLE BOYS WILL WATCH THIS AND SAY “hey lance is cool and he takes care of his skin maybe i should too!!!” like YES LANCE THANK YOU FOR DESTROYING TOXIC MASCULINITY
