Tumblr: the only place where you get more hate for being a straight white male than for being gay/non-white/a woman.
you could have talked about how the real world is a dangerous place for women, poc, and queer people
But wouldn’t a better solution be to stop hating anyone, instead of just reversing the direction of the supposed hate?
It’s a myth.
I used to ignore all of them back when I had 20,000 - 30,000 followers. I probably got 5 per day.
Then I started responding to a few of them. Making them look silly. Keeping my cool and not giving them the satisfaction of getting to me.
I now have 360,000 followers. I get maybe 5 per week.
Ignoring bullies is not always the answer. Both in real life and on the internet. It is how you choose to respond that makes the difference.
If you respond back with hate and vitriol. You will feed them. And they will come back.
And there are definitely some that you should absolutely ignore and block. Those who make physical threats. Those who tell you to kill yourself.
But in some cases, if you can respond in a way that makes them look foolish and gives them no satisfaction, they will go away and others will think twice about testing you.
How can one measure if a disability or disorder affects you at work (and thus “is really a disability”) if you are your own boss? If you get along with people and do well with your job, are you automatically not disabled? If you move to a job that’s less your thing, are you suddenly disabled again?
I’m not my own boss at one of my jobs, but I am at the others. And the one where I’m not requires far less social interaction than the others.
There are extreme answers to my question, i.e. Amy of Amy’s Baking Company, but most people are not that extreme.
This is just one of the reasons that disability is socially constructed.
Disability as a concept is created by an expectation that everyone has the same skillsets and abilities, and basically everyone suffers for that. Disabled people just suffer the most from it.
It’s also very connected to capitalism=morality, which is why feminism has failed us over and over. Liberal feminism is very much invested in the idea of “financially liberating” women, and according to that system, income is equivalent to worth and power, “independence” is equivalent to “empowerment”, which is their goal.
The arbitrary and subjective nature of the application of the term “disabled” combined with its association with worthlessness as pertains to capitalism, i.e., “cannot work” (which is how it is actually defined for the most part in government), really boils down to “You’re disabled if you can’t do what other people expect you to be able to do, whatever that might be.”
