If you are wondering "is this me?"

Here's a quiz.

If you decide to say something about how, like, natives get less medication than whites, and therefore have worse chronic pain. And so calling native drug seekers is horseshit.

And you invoke me as your reasoning, as I am a disabled chronic pain having native.

Are you speaking for milly the person?

Or milly the random native who needs someone to speak for them because I'm too weakened to do so myself?

Or milly the Squanto you've made in your head that is quiet and meek and helpful?

If it isn't 1, don't.

I am not a statistic.

Do not treat me in your story as a statistic or an ideal.

I am a fucking person

This might seem like a weird turn or a veering of the message.

But this is literally what goes through my mind whenever I see shit like this.

As I am a target of it.

I like the person who created an account on .social with an avi of a giant dick who just posted “gay” and then “sex” and nothing else.

Im saying this AS a disabled person, and a BIPOC.

People LOVE to say they're helping by speaking out for me, but they're actually using me as a weapon for a personal grudge instead of letting me speak.

And hell, I know A LOT of people LOVE to white knight for disabled folks and sprint forward with their banner when they were not asked to and are actually not helping.

Not saying that no one who needs a screen readers is annoyed with the all caps, I'm just saying that if you are not speaking out to boost someone who is disabled, maybe shhhhhh

it's a good thing that all caps posting fucks with screen readers significantly more than uwu-posting or emoji-posting or emoticons or keysmashing or any other number of text-based communication :)

This is like the tenth fucking time we've had the same debate, considered all angles, and realized the person screaming about accessibility was just angry at flowless instead of actually someone who needed the help.

I'm so tired of round X of the all caps accessibility debate.

Just admit you don't like flowless.

if the issues with caps posting is that it fucks with screenreaders, then maybe everyone should defederate with trollian.space
