To the people who say that merely identifying as trans (and not experiencing dysphoria) is what makes a person transgender:
I was born with XX chromosomes and was assigned female at birth, I was raised as a female, yet am male. However, I identify as cis. I show no signs of being cis, given that I have had to medically transition to have a male body, so does that make me cis? No. It doesn’t. I sincerely wish that only identifying as cis would make me cis, but that’s not the case.
So don’t say you’re trans because you identify as such and then go on to say that you don’t experience dysphoria; it just doesn’t work like that.
A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.
Reblogged this yesterday from a different source, but I think this photograph is more powerful.
I love this so much I’ll reblog it a million times!
I have only seen cars without handicapped tags or plates take handicapped spots a couple times. I would chunk the shit out of one of those wheelchairs and take the spot in all honesty. If I threw it pretty far, I would be momentarily proud of my throwing ability.
i hope a disabled person runs their car clear over your fucking spine, then tells you how momentarily proud they were of their driving ability.
now now friend let’s not feed the trolls
