PSA: deeply-embedded ableist slurs and problematic racist terms
We totally don't talk about it enough, but words like "stupid", "lame", "dumb", "idiot", "crazy", "maniac", "insane" are rooted in ableism. (Learned this a month ago) The term "motherfucker" has a painful root in slavery against black people by their owners. Sifting out any of this is a process and it takes time, but we are all learning and any effort to dismantle oppression even on subtle linguistic levels goes a long way 😊

no amount of drugstore retinol can fix the amount of wrinkles money stress and bureaucratic oppression is leaving me with at the age of 25

Sending in graduate school applications and bracing myself for none of it to work out feels like utter hell when being able to do science in my field (immunotherapy) at a researcher level means the universe to me.
Hope is one hell of a source of strength, and I feel sad that I'm running a bit low on it.

I'm still deeply concerned about how social currency works in Leftist spaces, and how even other AnComs don't talk about it or devise strategies to compensate for it.

We need to be actively anti-ableist in these ways.

Person, with a solid number of privileges: Stop caring about pronouns/freeing the nipple/baking cakes for gay couples! There are real bigger issues like women being raped en masse and child marriage and queer people being killed--

Me, a refugee who has fled these 'real bigger issues', sitting here with it being *so obvious* that even though those are different incidents, they are rooted in and perpetuated by the same systems of oppression that need dismantling all over:

Remember, "comrade" is a gender neutral way of addressing someone.
