1/ Dog lovers of Twitter: Please do not approach, pet, or talk (yes, I sad it) to dogs on walks without explicit permission from their owner. It is INCREDIBLY rude and is also very ignorant. Many folks, like me, are training their dogs to be service dogs.
2/ When you say things like, "Hi, buddy!" to a dog going through training to be a service animal, he or she is getting input to listen to you, and not, you know, their handler. Part of the training process is making sure the commands they follow are their owner's commands.
3/ It's super rude to disrupt that process. Leave dogs you don't know the fuck alone unless you are given permission to interact with the dog. This is another one of those things ableds are CLUELESS about.
4/ This is super important. It takes a long time to train a service dog and you are harming disabled folks by disrupting this process. FUCKING STOP. #DisabledInSTEM #DisabilityTwitter
5/ WhY iSnT yOuR dOg WeArInG a VeSt

Registered service animals are trained to perform a service. Some folks choose to get one before they're trained, but to reduce the stigma and bullshit comments, some of us choose to wait until after, fuck you very much.

1/ I'm making the decision to permanently step away from DEI work for the disability community, a thread. #ScienceTwitter #DisabledInSTEM #DisInHigherEd #AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #DEI #DisabilityTwitter #WomenInSTEM #WomenInScience #Equity #Access #Inclusion #SciTwitter
2/ Over the past few years, I've worked REALLY hard to teach academics about disability in academia. The threats we face. The homelessness, the discrimination, the early death. And some of the biggest DEI advocates out there have continued to tell me this is not a real problem.
3/ Some of these advocates have been abusers themselves. Faculty sending horrible messages on twitter, and sending me emails that are frankly, abhorrent.

1/ On the kind of professor I wish they all could be, a thread:
2/ I had about five classes with the same professor in undergrad and got As or A+s in all of them. So when I took a final for another course I had with him that I didn't study for and failed it, he reached out. He said he was concerned about my performance, and knew I could do
3/ Better. He offered me a chance to retake the final. Autistic people or people with NVLDs can't lie to save our lives, so I told him the truth-I didn't study, because I chose not to.

1/ PLZ RT: So a well-known DEI advocate from the CI community once tried to play oppression olympics by saying people with chronic illness had it harder than other disabled folks bc we could just request testing accommodations and be done.

I’d like to address this.
2/ 1. My school’s accessibility coordinator frequently doesn’t respond to emails or phone calls for weeks at a time. If I need help with accommodations, I can’t get it.
3/ Professors frequently won’t honor accommodations.

PIs! #ScienceTwitter #SciTwitter I'm trying to find rotation labs for the fall and I have a great recommendation from my last PI...but it turns out being sexually assaulted in your lab and reporting it to your PI does NOT garner a great rec. What do I do and how do I approach?
I've been asked about my time in this lab and don't know what to say, honestly. Super uncomfortable. And worried I won't even find a lab to rotate in.
Originally, when Kaelyn hired me, I skirted around the issue, but she noticed I didn't list this person as a recommender and asked why and other people who I'd been telling about this for months had to explain.
