THIS IS HOW THE BRITISH PRESS RESPONDS TO THE KILLINGS OF DISABLED CHILDREN. All of these extracts were taken from UK news websites. the final tweet is in response to a now-deleted tweet from politician Sandy Kaylan, who praised a mother for ‘euthanising’ her infant children

tania Clarence, 43, admitted to smothering three of her children, all of whom suffered from physical disabilities. Regardless of the circumstances that led to their tragic deaths, these methods of reporting are unethical and go against the British editors code of practice - which states that, once proceedings are active, the press cannot publish any material that could create substantial risk of prejudice in court. The language used in these articles (“tragic mum”, “the unbearable burden of care”, putting the word murder in scare quotes, etc) does exactly that. Reading these articles, it is clear who we are meant to “side” with.

that these rules on court proceedings are apparently not applicable to cases involving the killing of disabled children shows how little the British press (and by extension, the public) cares about the welfare of disabled people in this country. Calling these children burdens and implying they deserved to die reinforces ableism and makes the world a more dangerous place for disabled people. Yet the press does not count it as encouraging prejudice. maybe it’s because we believe the unlawful killing of disabled infants does not “count” as a real crime

This is abhorrent.

5,000 notes. Tumblr really that’s it?

People are surprised that this only had 5000 notes? That’s pretty much a standard problem. Tumblr as a whole tends to not really give a shit about ableism. I mean this might not be the case for smaller communities like the autistic community or the mentally ill communities etc, but yeah, I’m very much unsurprised at the lack of notes. That’s pretty standard.

After all, tumblr circulated a petition to make a death star but didn’t really circulate one that advocated for it to be illegal to prevent a disabled person from receiving an organ transplant.

But you know. What do I know?

not tagging because it’s super important. Fucking reblog it

Please go take care of this gross situation people of tumblr. Cultural appropriation at its finest. Us white people need to be stopped.

SO much is wrong with this.. Sugar Sculls are for Dia De Los Muertos (AKA: November 1, the day AFTER Halloween, and All Saints Day for my catholic friends out there) NOT FUCKING HALLOWEEN. Dia De Los Muertos is a day to honor your dead relatives and loved ones and just the dead in general, not to wear as a GOD DAMNED COSTUME! And this is culture appropriation. Dia De Los Muertos is a tradition of Central and  South America, I’m goddamned Columbian and I’m very freaking pissed about this. 

ugh I hate when people do this. a white woman walked into the bakery while I was working with a bindi on and was like “I have a Halloween party to go to so my make up is all done!” SOMEONES CULTURE/RELIGION IS NOT YOUR COSTUME. GO BE A FUCKING BUNNY RABBIT OR SOMETHING ITS NOT THAT HARD

EXACTLY!

I am so angry and disappointed right now.

I’m sure we’ve all watched the disturbing video of a beluga whale showing threatening behaviours towards some young children. If you haven’t you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh84Oe8JxUQ
