"Cancer/mental illness/disability affects rich and poor alike."
Uh, no, it doesn’t. Rich people can afford the treatments and accommodations for those things. Poor people cannot. Get the fuck outta here with that classist shit.
Not to mention a higher proportion of disabled people are in poverty and people in manual jobs are more likely to become disabled, there is a class element to disability that cannot be ignored.
But, oh, how I love your history and I can take it
And when you talk in code to me, I can translate it…
str8 ppl are always like “this background gay character is such great representation, they’re such a non-stereotype, their sexuality is almost never mentioned, they’re just like a straight person of the same gender!”
But as a lesbian and a friend 2 lesbians: we are constantly talking about how gay we are. Just non-stop. Over half the posts on my dash are just us being like, “girls are so cute and I want to kiss them and also I am extremely a homogay”
