  • Medical examiner: There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.

Anonymous asked:

What's albeism? I don't wanna sound rude I just actually don't know

feministcaptainkirk answered:

Ableism is a form of discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities.

And that means learning disabilities too. Which is why words like m*ron are ableist.

bustysaintclair:

Words like “st*pid” and “m*ron” and the r word and other derogatory words are ableist slurs because they promote the notion that people with learning disabilities or other cognitive disabilities are okay to insult.

Using a negative descriptor (a slur) that is typically associated with an oppressed group of people as a way to insult someone is a way of indicating that you think it’s a negative to be associated with that group. 

It’s dehumanizing and oppressive behavior.
