Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that…
I keep seeing this post about Captain America: The Winter Soldier where they basically say what if one day while Sam was out running Steve ran up on Sam’s left while Bucky past him on his right, calling out “On your left/right!” As they pass. I have one problem with this.
YOU ARE NEVER SUPPOSED TO PASS ON THE RIGHT!!!!!!
My family used to ride our bikes on long treks through public parks where people would also run and ride. And my dad taught is you always pass on the left and you call out your left to the person as you pass them so that they know to keep right so they don’t accidentally bump you and get hurt. It’s basic safety/etiquette and Cap knows this.

i was watching the first avenger and wondering how Bucky knew Steve was getting his ass kicked in the back of some random alley behind a movie theatre
like does he just check alleyways whenever he’s walking down a street to see if Steve’s started another fight he can’t finish
the answer is probably yes
time didn’t even revise the results
they didn’t change the numbers
they left it clear that laverne cox was on top
and then they just straight up excluded laverne from their Influential 100 list because they felt like it.
i don’t need an explanation from them. i don’t need to understand their motives because fuck them.
An undeniably large part of what keeps poverty going is the fact that there are people who think that if they vote with the rich they’ll somehow magically become the rich. The trouble is, rich people don’t vote. They own.
"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires."

oh. so that’d be why they won’t shut up about the “land of opportunity” and the rest of the bootstraps stuff. because it keeps people from realizing that there’s a whole system preventing them from doing exactly that.

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
