People will assume your sickness is your fault. No matter what kind of long-term illness you have, you will eventually run into this person. The one who remains convinced that, despite what doctors say, you are sick because you just haven’t tried enough. “But have you tried positive thinking?” they ask you. “What about switching to an all-raw lembas diet?

I detest the masculine point of view. I am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. I think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore.

Recap: Hamas didn’t kidnap the 3 Israelis. Hamas abided by an 18-month ceasefire. Israel broke the ceasefire repeatedly, bombed Gaza, pummeled the West Bank, and murdered more than 1000 Palestinians.

But the state of Israel was not created for the salvation of the Jews; it was created for the salvation of the Western interests. This is what is becoming clear (I must say that it was always clear to me). The Palestinians have been paying for the British colonial policy of “divide and rule” and for Europe’s guilty Christian conscience for more than thirty years.

Finally: there is absolutely—repeat: absolutely—no hope of establishing peace in what Europe so arrogantly calls the Middle East (how in the world would Europe know? having so dismally failed to find a passage to India) without dealing with the Palestinians. The collapse of the Shah of Iran not only revealed the depth of the pious Carter’s concern for “human rights,” it also revealed who supplied oil to Israel, and to whom Israel supplied arms. It happened to be, to spell it out, white South Africa.

Happy Birthday, ADA! July 26, 2013 marks the 23rd anniversary of the landmark civil rights legislation of the disability rights movement, the Americans with Disabilities Act. This video was made by the 2013 American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) summer interns to both celebrate the ADA and to reflect on how much work there still is to do.

Please reblog in solidarity with the disability rights movement!
