If you, like me, ever find yourself feeling guilty or ashamed about being a disabled student, doubting whether you really need or deserve accommodations, I encourage you to think back to the 504 protests. If you ever feel society tugging at you to “get by” without accommodations, “toughen up,” “suck it up,” “stick it out,” because “the whole world doesn’t cater to you,” remember that you are part of a community that has spent enough time living in an inaccessible world. If you feel tempted to do an ableist society’s work by torturing yourself for being disabled, remember that over a hundred protestors (and an infestation of crabs) stayed in a building for nearly a month without the comforts of home or any accommodations or accessible structures. Remember that all the discomfort and indignities they faced as protestors were so that you wouldn’t have to go through the same thing. You’re relieved of any duty to feel guilty or ashamed about being a disabled student.

Fighting Shame with History

Longmore Institute student assistant Katie offers a bit of advice, history, and humor to help her fellow disabled students fight back against the internalized ableism that crops up at the start of the semester.

Debunking the myth that Tumblr is only used and populated by kids.

Age Ranges of Tumblr’s Global Audience:Tumblr sees about 150 million global unique visitors monthly. comScore, an Internet analytics firm, averaged Tumblr’s age ranges over the first quarter of 2014 for both Dashboard and blog network traffic worldwide:
Ages 13 to 17: 15%
Ages 18 to 34: 41%
Ages 35 to 54: 29%
Ages 55 and up: 15%
"People are often really surprised to note that we have the same percentage of 55-plus-year-olds as we do 13-to-17-year-olds," said Danielle Strle (strle), Tumblr’s director of product for community and content, in an NPR webinar. “But over half of our audience is solidly in the 13-to-34 demographic.”


OLD PEOPLE REPRESENT! [swings cane around like it’s a light sabre. Come to think of it, a cane that looks like a light sabre would be kinda cool.]
[I don’t use a cane. Yet.]


YES! Take that, haters. Solidly in the 29% camp. 

Two age-themed posts in a row? I must be getting old. :D
(I’m the only one of my kids’ friends’ parents to be on tumblr, fwiw, but I was also the only one of my kids’ friends’ parents to be on Livejournal, and I was in my 20s then….)
