The perks of being disabled.

Because sometimes being an outsider it's not an option.

My father have had many thrombus (a bad kinda blood clot) in his one knee over the years, over at least nine of them. About four years ago his leg couldn't walk correctly anymore, so unless it is short distances, he walks around with a crutch. People somehow get offended when they see him with it for some reason, saying he isn't 'disabled' because of his looks. Makes me kind of sad really, so you have to look a certain way or else it ain't there? What the heckie.

Yes. Absolutely. Aparently we don’t seem miserable enough to fill the ignorant social standard of a disabled person. The next time we should try with a Bambi face so people at the parking lot will let us use the spot.

Again?

bad-amp:

As I’m walking into my boy’s elementary school, I walked past a couple of the staff who were outside as safety monitors. One of them looks at me and says ” you know that you’re parked in a handicap spot, right?” without even slowing down I looked at her and said “you mean ‘disabled’ parking?” and…

I’ve been there and told “sorry, you don’t look disabled”. I’m still working on the best way to answer to that.

THE ZOMBIE KILLER CANE

It ocurred to me that if I ever have to fight in the zombie apocalypse it will be with this cane:

-It’s covered in titanium to beat zombies
-It’s handle is a removable automatic sniper shot gun
-It has a zombie radar
-An inside sword and a rifle to shot them into their cranes
-An emergency granade (just in case)
-AND EVERYTHING FITS RIGHT IN THE PERFECT MOBILITY AID WHICH ALLOWS ME TO WALK WITHOUT FALLING DOWN :D

Disabled models to keep an eye on.

1. Aimee Mullins

2. Alex Minsky

3. Debbie Van Der Putten

4. Jillian Mercado

If you know any other disabled models don’t doubt on adding them to the list!

These other models don’t have properly a physical disability but they have certain conditions that make them unique: Shaun Ross, Thando Hopa, Diandra Forrest, Connie Chiu and Stephen Thompson have albinism.

Chantelle Young has vitiligo. She won ANTM.

I am currently researching for a new educational video I am planning on making.

e-zeke-iel:

I am planning on making an educational video aimed at the general public.

I will be aimed at educating them on the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of treating disabled people. Whether they have invisible ones, are in a wheelchair, it doesn’t matter.

So, my problem is, I am doing research, watching videos,…

MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE! *the real slim shady stands up*

Let’s help e-zeke-iel in this amazing project for disability awareness.

Thank you so much! Glad to know that you'd miss me! I'd also miss you, you are undoubtedly one of my favourite blogs. I think I've actually called you a friend in some conversations rather than saying "this person I know from Tumblr"! I've had this (sherlockedholmed) blog for 3 1/2 years now and I'm so deep in Tumblr now there's no getting out! :) x

Sweet! :D Let’s keep in touch. I’ll stalk you more so I don’t lose your track ;) Hugs.

Dear followers:

theperksofbeingdisabled:

I stopped following back everybody a while ago because I can brag about having some of the weirdest followers, from bots and fetishists to hardcore BDSM and maybe aliens, and it scares me a little.
If you’d like me to follow your blog because…

-You’re human and not a bot.
-We post similar stuff.
-Just because you’re a cool person.

Please send me an inbox to say hi :)

My tolerance policy ends now when I find dicks in my dash EVERYTIME I open Tumblr (sometimes they are ok).
