stand up for girls and women who don’t like to read. stand up for girls and women who can’t read. stand up for girls and women with low IQs. stand up for girls and women who can’t write. stand up for girls and women whose access to education has been prevented. for those with learning disorders. for those who mix up “your” and “you’re” because it’s not that big a fucking deal tumblr. stand up for women who are called ableist slurs for these things and stop implying that the only way to be a feminist icon is by being an intellectual.
THIS THIS THIS
The first time I tried to educate myself on feminism, I thought being disabled made me an embarrassment to my gender and automatically disqualified me from being a feminist, because that’s the message the feminist movement promotes. Many of the things able-bodied, neurotypical feminists consider characteristics of the ideal woman can’t be achieved by women with disabilities. Part of that is because of our disabilities themselves, and part of that is because of the ways ableism holds disabled women back. Try to get AB/NT feminists to stop engaging in ableism though, and watch as they respond to disabled women by whipping out the very same silencing tactics that men use to silence them. Hypocrites to the bitter end.
