Okay, I have to go off.

There is NO WAY Cherry is faking any of their disabilities. I’ve known them for over 5 years now, I have chatted with them about their pain, I have heard their stories and seen their photos of everything they’ve been through.

This is a disgusting rumour.
Cherry has been my main champion and support as I’ve navigated my own disabilities, hospital visits, and injuries. I’m appalled that people could sink to this level, to question their disabilities because of what? Their success? Their talent?

Jealousy makes people into monsters.
I’m so enraged by this I can’t even find the words to describe how wrong this is. Cherry is the sweetest, most gentle and kind soul I’ve ever met and the fact this toxicity is even remotely close to them ignites the most virulent anger I’ve felt in a long time.
Questioning someone else’s disability is so ableist and bigoted, and knowing that the person targeted is a nonbinary, feminine presenting individual leads me to believe the bigotry runs beyond classic ableism, and ventures into other intersections of their identity.
Cherry is the last person in the world that deserves this kind of bullshit, so I’m going invoke my role as nôtinitomâkan and say if you want to pick a fight and pull this crap, do it with me. Leave them alone and keep their name out of your mouth. They don’t need your crap.

It’s #SettlerSaturday and Canada is a shit show. Here is a thread of all of the ongoing attacks on Indigenous folks and how you can support them.
1. The Mi’kma’ki “Lobster Dispute” but really it’s a bunch of racist white fishermen attacking Indigenous people practicing their treaty rights. This is an onslaught and the government is doing nothing about it. Donate here:

2. 1492 LandBack Lane

It was day 90 yesterday and Six Nations land defenders are still being arrested and targeted for protecting their land from development. The legal fees are mounting. You can donate via etransfer: landback6nations@gmail.com

CW: Hospitals / Racism / Injuries

A thread: (it may be a long one)

The more time that passes the more I realize how traumatic my experience at the hospital was. I hope Canadians realize that Joyce Echaquan’s murder and the treatment she faced beforehand wasn’t an anomaly.
Upon registration at the hospital, I was asked if I was Indigenous, and I was in so much pain I didn’t think to ask why. I just said yes. I couldn’t even sit down during the intake because of how much pain I was in. Eventually I was moved to a bed in a room with another person.
There was a divider up so I couldn’t see who I was sharing my room with. The nurse didn’t even talk to me, she just called my name and pointed. Anyways, I stayed here for six hours. No one checked on me. I wasn’t given a call button or anything. I was just stuck in this room.
