My wife Holly built a full body costume of Blathers, then went around Comic-Con giving fossils to people (includes some familiar faces). I filmed the entire thing and it was adorable. Holly’s been working really hard on her YouTube channel and it makes me super proud to be seeing her do so! Share this one around guys :)
please watch this
finding diseases “interesting” is ableist at its core. you are fascinated with the otherness of it and usually while you give NO SHITS for the people who live with the disease.
other peoples illnesses aren’t for you to gawk at and go “ooooooooh ahhhhhhhh” at like this is entry level type shit and should not have to be explained but here I am on tumblr.com explaining it to you animals
Ok I agree with this to an extent….but at the same time I don’t. Just because you find illnesses interesting doesn’t necessarily mean that you give no shits. And would you rather no one found any illness interesting at all, so that no one benefits from any discussion about it whatsoever? Albeism is real, but illnesses are an uncomfortable and terrible reality. The “otherness” of illness is exactly what sparks interest of other topics as well. Being different sparks interest. Psychology is all about finding interest in illness, are all psychologists albeist? No. Interest sparks discussion, which can lead to beneficial research and activism.
