If the multiverse theory is true, then there’s a universe where it isn’t.
Multiverse theory doesn’t cover paradoxical situations
Except in the universe where it does
i’m having an aneurysm
So I found some links on ableism and I’m still reading them but yoooo I’m unlearning a lot of shit right now and I’m having a braingasm. Check it out.
Is this Ableism (i’m mad that i just now found this)
BUT YOO THIS ONE RELATES TO US AND CALLS US OUT YOOOO
The next person to compare racism to sociopathy on my dash gets a big unfollow.
Because I am tired of people thinking that “perceived as being unempathic” is the same thing as actually being unempathic.
I am tired of the lack of thought being put into the diagnostic criteria and how it impacts psych/patient dynamics.
I am tired of psychiatrists being seen as infallible and as knowing our own minds better than we do.
I am tired of diagnostic criteria that primarily rely upon another’s perception of your emotions or thought processes.
I am tired of the demonisation of people with non-neurotypical emotional responses.
I am tired of an uncritical approach to the concept of empathy.
I am tired of empathy being held up as what makes one a good person.
I am tired of being told that I am a bad person for not experiencing it or showing it in ways neurotypical people deem appropriate.
I am tired of this being “evidence” for why I am sub-human.
And I am tired of racists being let off too easily.
I am tired of racists being called sociopaths.
For them to be sociopaths, it would have to be widely recognised by society, and by their psychiatrists or other people in power, that their responses are not appropriate.
Socially learned or condoned sociopathy is an oxymoron that does not accurately portray any kind of mental illness, and perpetuates the dismissive stereotype that “everyone’s just a bit crazy”.
To call lack of empathy (or compassion) sociopathy lets white people off far too easily.
It implies that white people are not in power.
It implies that they did not shape the medical and psychiatric institutions to perpetuate racism and the kyriarchy in general.
It implies that the medical and psychiatric institutions (and those that participate in them in a position of power) are infallible.
And it overestimates the amount of power non-white people have in society, that they can label white people as sociopaths.
It implies that white people look uncompassionate or unempathic. Calling them sociopaths does not imply that they actually are these things.
I completely agree that much of the time, white people do not act with compassion towards non-white people. That much of the time they do not even view us as fully human compared to them.
But this is not sociopathy, and you should not compare it to sociopathy unless you are prepared to be critical of the power dynamics within the psychiatric institution, ideas of empathy, the idea that mental illness is by definition not the norm within its society, and that mentally ill people as a group do not hold power in a way that is comparable to Whiteness.
SO this is some cool stuff I found but is not even the tip of the iceberg. We have definitely had submissions where people discuss being on the intersection of ableism and racism, so yeah keep that up! But let’s stop with the slurs, k? Considering that ableism was/is used as a tool for racism I think we can understand, at least a little bit cause there is so much more, why this is messed up.
MY SISTER IS STUDYING FOR THE MCAT AND THE FUCKING CRACKER MASCOT LOOKS LIKE IT’S RUBBING ONE OUT

I’m not even a gamer but I would play this so hard.
and you would get sorted an junk and it would be great
Isn’t this secretly what we all wanted Pottermore to be?
Okay so my mind started rolling with this and omfg okay just hear me out
So like it starts of sort of like Sims and Skyrim, okay. You get your owl and you go do your shopping for stuff for Hogwarts, but you don’t get to see your character just yet. When you get to Hogwarts and your sorting ceremony, you get to customise how they look and what sort of traits they have. After you customise all that, you get sorted via a quiz (sort of like Pottermore) and it rolls with that and you get sorted.
Through the game, you get to study magic (obvious) and you have adventures and stuff where you have to make decisions. These decisions later decide what your Patronus and Animagus will be, as well as what your fear is for you Boggart (though this could also possibly be decided on when you’re making your character idk whatever).
So during the summer holidays, you have adventures in the Muggle world (depending on what your blood status is, which could be decided randomly) if you’re Muggle-born. If you’re Pure-Blooded, you have adventures in the wizarding world. If you’re Half-Blooded, you can do both. But here’s the thing, if you spend more time in the Muggle world, you get more information on going on’s in the Muggle world, and same goes for the Wizarding world if you spend more time in the Wizarding world. And after a period of time, like maybe in your fourth year?, you can get papers and news from whichever world you’re not in most often. And your knowledge of the events of the world, both Wizarding and Muggle alike, can factor into the gameplay somehow.
And then in your Fifth and Seventh years, you have your O.W.L.s and your N.E.W.T.s, and these factor into what career choices you’ll have later on as well. So like if you score high in Herbology and Potions, you’d have career options like Healer, Herbologist, and Potion Master.
AND THEN THE WORLD BECOMES YOURS. YOU CAN CONTINUE RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAD IN HOGWARTS AFTERWARDS, OR YOU CAN MEET NEW PEOPLE, OR WHATEVER. AND THEN IT JUST BECOMES THIS HUGE SANDBOX OF FUN AND WONDERMENT.
FUCKIN DO IT BETHESDA
I SUCK AT VIDEO GAMES BUT I WOULD BE ON THIS GAME SO HARD
Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.
I am not Indian. I have no ancestors from India.
I am a mixed race First Nations person whose history is rooted in the Dene people from Canada and the Aztec people in El Salvador.
Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M

Interesting fact: Due to Chimera syndrome, some women have found DNA tests to say they aren’t the mother’s of the children they gave birth too. There was this documentary on the Syndrome and this woman and her husband were getting a divorce and the judge made them take a DNA test to make sure that all the children were the husband’s for child support reasons (I can’t remember why that was necessary) and the DNA test said the kids were his, but not hers. Everyone was stunned and even the husband was like ‘but they came out of her?’.
