"Why don't you people?

Why don't you like to ask for help?

Why do you need Black spaces or Femme spaces?

Why can't you do tweetathons for strangers? "

Because ...
It takes a long time
to be sure a person is willing to ride for you, for real.

Lotta people will hook you up once or twice.
Very few people will be at your 11th crowdfund ',

Or the 25th time you want to talk about your disabled day.
And it's never like:

"you know this is too much for me, let me help you find a way to replace my help.
No it's

"Why are you so needy?"

"I helped you so why won't you back me on this super-harmful lie."

"You're going to this doctor I've been taking you to for six weeks for attention"
They can't even own up to their fuckups

without making it about whatever marginalization you have.
The same people will say "don't make this about your disability"

"everything isn't about race."

"Females always do this"

Fuuuck you. 😄

Tonight's #DisabledBlackTalk will be about DIY fixes for #disability issues & #mobility tools.

We're meeting at 8 pm CT/ 9 pm ET Thursday night. White lettering on red background with the word cloud for #D
What do you do if something you use as a mobility tool doesn't work?

Is there a trick to getting a resource or service?

Should we make some?

Bring your best #DisHacks to #DisabledBlackTalk.
Chat is in 25 minutes. Rules, momentarily.

Got another close friend in peril community.

She needs *at least* another $2500 by tomorrow

or she is in danger of homelessness.

So time for another #MutualAidMovies event.
Her paylinks:
C: $SynceNerdCarly
V: @ SynceNerdCarly

And here is her thread so you can be certain this is legit.

"Help me but don't do it for the reason that made you visible enough to ask you."

It's not a thing. Do it your way then.

Leave me out of it Corporation X.
I'd be rich if I could make myself take unethical jobs.

I already can't sleep at night because of the pain.
Maybe it's old fashioned but I have to live with myself.

Already know how it feels to let your audience down because your money got stuck at a payment processor.

I said what I saiddd. No one will never get a dollar who believes in harming people for "jokes."
Why should I have to cosign bullshit because it came from a Black man.

If you are asking me to only choose the elevation of people who share my identities

even when they are wrong?

you obvi don't give a shit about me

and aren't on my side.

Why should I be on yours.

Not true. When we are silent, things never change.

How about including the 20% of people in the world instead?
We could support *each other* - instead of the choices being patronizing Amazon/HF/whoever, you could include the help people need to be able to join the boycotts.
During the Montgomery boycott, employers eventually started picking up housekeepers etc

so they would always have to choose walking long distances and breaking the boycott.

I wish y'all would respect both hard & soft boundaries.
Hard boundary : do not give me more information about [thing].
Soft boundary : [THING] made me experience unwanted emotion.

Such as PTSD so hard I am now crying in a fetsl ball.
