FATMF. Feminism, fandoms, fashion, art, whatever I feeel like posting.
I am a genderqueer feminist. White, neuroatypical, butchy, vegetarian, writer, pagan, currently studying childcare. Ze/zir pronouns.
Everyone is welcome on my blog except relatives and exes.
This is taking place at my school and I am furious. Under the American with Disabilities Act any school district (with the exception of a deaf school) that hires her will have to provide an interpreter. It’s ridiculous that the school is not allowing her to have an interpreter in the classroom when she will have one while she is actually working. I will be working on legislation with the student government association to do something about this, but for the time being I think it needs some visibility.
Don’t let CMU get away with this.
There is now a petition! Sign and reblog!
Today in student government myself and others presented a resolution in support of Kelly, but it looks like she is going to need as much support as she can get. Sign the petition, reblog this post, anything you can do to help get this fixed.
Ableism is never okay.

“A new study by M. Marit Rehavi of the University of British Columbia and Sonja B. Starr of the University of Michigan Law School shows that Black Americans receive almost 60% long prison sentences than white Americans who committed the same crime.
The study covered 58,000 federal criminal cases and found that there was a significant difference between the sentences given to Black people to those given to white people.”
I think this is an excellent study to shove in people’s faces when they stubbornly believe the disproportionate amount of POC in prisons is down to them being inherently more criminal and not down to a racist justice system in a racist society.
