Image description: Left image is me standing up with the words “This Would Make Me Human”. Right image is me sitting in my wheelchair with the words “Too Bad This Is The Only Way I Can Survive” while smaller words underneath say, “Guess I won’t be human after all.”

If you don’t know, I have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Since the pain is in my legs, it makes it excruciating to stand more than a few seconds at a time. I’m always in pain, but at least using a wheelchair means I can go about in the world. Well, anywhere that has wheelchair accessibility both physically and emotionally.

I had to quit my job the other day due to disability discrimination. I was not important enough to have accommodations throughout the store’s remodel and when they finally gave them to me, they took them away the next day and I was yelled at for making a fuss about it.

Had I been standing, had I been walking, had I been a normal, human being, this would never have happened. If I walked and stood without assistive devices, I’d be seen as human.

But since I don’t, and I can’t, it’s something I have to fight for.

I have to fight just for people to see me as someone who is worth living.

This girl is one of the coolest people ever and I am so freaking mad that this happened at all, let alone to her.

Requesting adequate accommodations is not “making a fuss,” as her previous employer said. It’s the LAW.

Do more than speak up against ableism. Fight it. Fight it for Sasha, for me, for everyone who’s ever been discriminated against.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO LET HANNAFORD KNOW THAT THEY CAN’T DO THIS! https://www.change.org/petitions/hannaford-stop-discriminating-against-employees-with-disabilities#

UPDATE

Hannaford corporate got back to me after they found out about the petition. After I sent them an email explaining the exact details of what happened, from everyone else getting a register they could use, to losing hours, losing the ability to work any part of what was in my job description due to them taking out my accommodations and replacing registers that were completely inaccessible, and refusal to allow me to use a stool, AND WORKING WITHOUT ACCOMMODATIONS FOR A MONTH they told me:

It is unfortunate that you were not willing to give the store time to work through the changes necessary due to the remodel.”

Welcome back to Shaming Racists: the Halloween Edition! Ladies and gentlemen, I present:

Caitlin Cimeno, also known as Kt Cimeno of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. Employed at Our Market Liquor Store.

Greg Cimeno

William Filene from Quincy, Massachusetts.

This is all public on facebook. All three pictures can be found on Caitlin Cimeno’s Instagram, @ktcimeno.

There’s no question that the three of them are racists, but Caitlin disgusted me by taking an unconsented picture of somebody else’s little girl, somebody else’s child, and using them as the target of racism for a facebook status. I’m including that too because how nasty do you have to be? As if the Halloween photos don’t answer that question.

Let me add that this stuff right here, EVERYBODY, is the reason you can’t darken your skin to portray a Black person. Because this is used to dehumanize us. Whether you intend to or not, you are perpetrating Blackface.

IT. IS. RACIST.

Caitlin Cimeno, Greg Cimeno, and William Filene are three of thousands. But justice will be served where it can. For them to make a mockery of Trayvon Martin’s death is disgusting, as is every single person praising them in the comments and every person defending them.

Look at how little value Black lives have in some people’s lives. Look at how today, yes, in 2013, our deaths are something to be laughed at, mocked, and our bodies worn as a Halloween costume. This is how we are dehumanized. Only one of thousands of ways.

Happy fucking Halloween.

You watch SNL? Yes? In her Twitter bio, Sarah Beattie lists SNL as her place of employment. She also has more than 100,000 followers on Twitter and she treats them with “jokes” such as the above. With “comedians” like Sarah writing the “jokes”, no shit SNL sucks and is practically unwatchable.
Original here (made screencapture in case it’s deleted).

Holy shit this woman is HORRIBLE. She is The Worst. Her whole twitter just seems like she’s trying to be fucking Tosh or something. 
I bet she’s the one who keeps making Aidy Bryant play slightly pathetic ‘weird fat girl’ characters.
