Unfortunately, I’m used to it. I’m used to the double standards in the name of a “FEMINIZM” that only applies to women perceived as both disabled and intelligent, “FEMINIZM” as code for “make up for existing by contributing to capitalism; parenting is the opposite of making up for existing”. It doesn’t surprise me very much any more. It does in the moments, but only for a few minutes.
Don’t worry about me. I know I’m awesome.
I hate so much this capitalist feminism that refuse to acknowledge that the problem is not ONLY a Society that genderify the average job and duty expected of people to give the less valorized ones at Women and other underpriviliged people. But also the fact in Itself that these are the less favourized roles in this System, Caring, nurtiring, cleaning, helping, All things that are part of the most necessary ever and take at least as much work and dedication…

teaching: you’re doing it right.
Because children with learning disabilities don’t exist.
Fuck that teacher yo.
Not to mention the assumption that working at Burger King is an unworthy job being just a little classist.
And also, some of those disabled people could have a condition that prevents them from working in burger king (I think it’s a job that would really be to difficult for me to do for exemple, with my sensory troubles, constant interractions with clients… having to be good at organization… not to mention how clumsy I am (I don’t know if it counts as dispraxia)
… And in general, this attitude is so shitty I mean, the clear idea here is humiliation (with like said before, a very strong classist, elitist bia) and that’s not the way you teach, shame is not the way you get people to learn something.
I don’t even consider myself wealthy.

RICH PEOPLE. GOOD LORD.
Every time a rich person says money doesn’t matter at all I want to scream.
I’ve said this before, but again: if money isn’t important, how come rich people want to keep so much of theirs? -Jess
To be fair, she only drives a couple of Cadillacs.
YES YES YES to Jess’s comment, (In matter of class I may still be considered somewhat privileged… and still… Urrgh Why do they have to say things like that?)
Lakota grandmother and activist Debra
White Plume being arrested in Sept. protesting
Tarsands and Keystone XL pipeline at
the White House. Lakotas Alex White Plume, Debra White Plume, Andrew Ironshell, Sam Long Black Cat and Don Iron Shell, were arrested at a highway blockade late Monday, attempting to halt Keystone XL tarsands pipeline trucks. Debra White Plume, just released from jail in Kyle, South Dakota, said, “Alex, myself, Sam Long Black Cat, Andrew Iron Shell and Don Iron Shell were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.”
“We formed a blockade to stop tarsands oil mine equipment from passing our lands. The truckers told us the corporation office from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the State of South Dakota made a deal to save the truckers $50,000 per truck. There were two trucks, from having to pay $100,000.”
“There were about 50 t0 75 people on the blockade at the village of Wanbli in Eagle Nest District on the northern side of the Pine Ridge rez.”
Earlier action alert: “Calling all Lakota men on the Pine Ridge Reservation to come to Wanblee SD. XL Pipeline trucks are being held there at the border by our Lakota Oyate, OST Police and State Troopers in an effort to keep them from entering our territory. Even the state troopers told the trucks they have to turn around and cannot bring their … pipeline or other materials on to our reservation. The XL Pipeline trucks are refusing to turn around claiming they have corporate rights that supersedes any other law. NOW: ‘They are getting through. We need people there now!’ Check back for updates.
