It’s always tricky to pick gloves to wear while using my wheelchair during the winter. On one hand, I need gloves that will keep my hands warm, especially while I’m just waiting for the bus outside, but on the other hand, using my wheelchair takes so much exertion that my hands will sweat a lot in my half finger gloves even when it’s so cold out it’s below the freezing point. I can’t imagine how hot and sweaty my hands would get in full finger gloves.
People always say don’t let your disability be one of your personality traits. The same thing is said about being LGBT+
But fuck that. I am who I am because of my disability and being gay (I’m using gay as an umbrella term in this case).
I have grown and changed so much because of my experiences as a queer disabled person.
So yeah, my disability and queerness is a part of my personality. They are a huge part of me, but I am more than just those two things.
I am a queer disabled person, but I’m also an artist, and a baker. I’m a practicing witch and a gardener. I am so many things and I am proud of all of it.
So don’t tell me that I shouldn’t “use my disability or queerness as a personality trait”. I am queer and I am disabled and you can’t take either of those away from me just because it makes you uncomfortable.
Eating disorders are disgusting and I didn’t realize how bad things really were until I got here. Grateful for the support.

Trajan’s Recovery: A Happy Ending
Turns out it was just a misunderstanding that lead to the air force attacking the dock. Shark was a pirate but wasn’t stealing, was just carrying.
I hate that I feel this way, but I often feel weird wearing suits/formal clothes/vintage fashion when using a wheelchair. I don’t know why. I just feel like I look really weird? Of course it’s a bad thing to think; there are no fashion rules for a wheelchair. I’m sure it’s internalized ableism. But regardless, I feel weird.
Abled ppl keep saying were so depressed with our condition but ya’ll are the ones treating everything we do like its a tradgedy.
Disabled person: I got a diagnosis!!
Disabled ppl: YAS! Congratz!
Abled: :( i’m so sorry
Disabled: i saved up enough for a mobility aid!
Disabled ppl: omg!! :D
Abled: now you’re limited :((
I went into paralysis, but for the first time it was in a public place: a grocery store.
My friend had to grab a wheelchair. I had to figure out how to get into a car. I kept falling over at every turn and stop because my legs wouldn’t push back on the floor.
I had to wait in the car while my roommate got the wheelchair. She helped push me to the door. I had to crawl because of the steps.
Everyone knows that being paralyzed would changed everything, but its still so shocking to realize what details that “everything” includes.
Every time I’m in front of a massive staircase, a guy will come up to us (me and my partner), and ask, “Do you want me to carry her?”
Not asking me. Not even looking at me. They ask the walker. Any other wheelies get this crap?
Joana Almada is an amazing, 36 year old, dancer, model and disability advocate from Ghana.
She uses a wheelchair because of Hemimelia Fibular. This is a congenital condition which caused some quite severe deformities in her legs and left her unable to walk…
Every time I see someone claim that Helen wouldn’t make a good main human in Sonic X because she’s in a wheelchair, I’m very tempted to show them this:
Dare to stretch your mind body and spirit
Cmd. Tial Marubah, stretching their mind outside of their body to use psionic powers. Thanks to confidential procedures and cranial implants, this lizard is able to induce confusion, panic, sensory illusions, even remotely take control of another’s body but with great effort.
“Rapper” the raptor, stretching his slimy malleable body. This artificial organic being is an exohero so he puts his unusual abilities to good use rescuing the defenseless and punishing crime all while taking a myriad of shapes. His powers make having a separate identity as a civilian quite easy.
“Skullface DJ” the revenant archosaur, expelling her spirit energy through her skull. She’s a paranormal investigator and often faces against other supernatural beings, which doubles as a snack after victory as she devours their spirits.
“Stairs Accident. Mr Gabriello helps Tial out”
