Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

A coroner’s report obtained exclusively by NBC News directly contradicts the police version of how a 22-year-old black man died in the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser earlier this year — but still says the man, whose hands were cuffed behind his back, shot himself.
 
In a press release issued March 3, the day he died, the Louisiana State Police said Victor White III apparently shot himself in an Iberia Parish police car. According to the police statement, White had his hands cuffed behind his back when he shot himself in the back.
 
But according to the full final report of the Iberia Parish coroner, which was released nearly six months later and obtained exclusively by NBC News, White was shot in the front, not the back. The bullet entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit. White was left-handed, according to family members. According to the report, the forensic pathologist found gunshot residue in the wound, but not the sort of stippling that a close-range shot can sometimes produce. He also found abrasions on White’s face.
 
And yet, despite the contradictions – and even though White’s hands were never tested for gunpowder residue – the Iberia Parish coroner still supported the central contention of the initial police statement issued back in March. Dr. Carl Ditch ruled that White shot himself, and declared his death a suicide.

He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life.

Let me be very clear about something: Surgery is absolutely not a requirement for or condition of trans*ness. For some people gender-confirmation surgery is a personal necessity, a life-or-death need. For others it’s not. For some the medical risks aren’t worth it. For some it’s a financial impossibility. And, believe it or not, some trans* people simply don’t want any kind of surgery. Each person is different.

When people ask whether she’s going to do “the full transition,” I most often reply now by saying that she already has. The important thing to remember is that there isn’t some kind of finish line. There’s not a day in the future when my partner will finally and completely be a woman. She is a woman now. Today. She is not a halfling. She is not transitioning: She has transitioned. Focusing further on the specifics of her genitals is just kind of creepy. Genitals do not make a person. While surgeries can help some people feel more comfortable in their skin, those people were already wholly the gender by which they identified before surgical intervention. Some women have penises. Some men have vaginas. That’s that.

  • Heteroromantic: romantically attracted to people of another gender only.
  • Homoromantic: romantically attracted to people of the same gender only.
  • Biromantic: romantically attracted to two or more genders.
  • Panromantic: romantic attraction has no regard to gender.
  • Gynoromantic: romantically attracted to femininity

Grayromantic: someone who is neither alloromantic nor aromantic, or someone who is between alloro and aro.(Also called gray-romantic, grayaromantic, gray-aromantic)

  • Akoiromantic: experiences romantic attraction, but does not wish for (or does not require) those feelings to be reciprocated. (Can be either akoiromantic or akoineromantic, and was previously called “lithromantic” but there were issues with that term)
  • Demiromantic: experiences romantic attraction only after forming a close bond.
  • Quoiromantic: is confused by romantic attraction, or cannot tell the difference between romantic and platonic attraction.(also called WTFromantic)
  • Recipromantic: does not experience romantic attraction until they know someone is interested in them first.
  • Idemromantic: experiences romantic and platonic attraction similarly or identically, but categorizes them into romantic or platonic based on factors other than the feelings themselves.(source)

A list of romantic orientations! I included all of the ones I could find, but I’m expecting the list to be either incomplete or flawed, so if you have any corrections, please let us know.

Also, if you know the source of a term and it isn’t included, drop us a message and we’ll add it. Thanks!

Study shows LGBT Americans report lower well-being than cis, straight Americans

gaywrites:

In a new Gallup poll released this week, LGBT Americans reported lower purpose, social, financial, community, and physical wellness than their straight and cis counterparts.

Gallup calculates a Well-Being Index score on a scale of 0 to 100, calculated using questions relating to these categories. Based on 2,964 interviews with LGBT adults and 81,134 interviews with non-LGBT adults, LGBT folks scored an average of 58 and non-LGBT folks an average of 62. 

Some noteworthy points (copied and pasted from Gallup):

  • The financial element is where the LGBT community falls furthest behind the non-LGBT population. LGBT Americans are 10 percentage points less likely to be thriving financially than their non-LGBT counterparts. For women, the difference is slightly above average, while for men it is slightly below.
  • One in three non-LGBT Americans are thriving physically, compared with about one in four LGBT Americans. This difference is entirely driven by LGBT women, as differences by LGBT status among men are not statistically significant.
  • Thirty-five percent of LGBT adults are thriving socially, compared with 41% of non-LGBT adults. The gaps for men and women are the same. Social well-being includes questions about relationships with friends and family, personal time, and received encouragement and support.
  • LGBT Americans are less likely than their non-LGBT counterparts to be thriving in community well-being — 32% vs. 38%, respectively. This difference by LGBT status is largely driven by women. LGBT status is not a significant factor in men’s assessments of their communities.
  • Overall, LGBT Americans trail non-LGBT Americans in reporting a strong sense of purpose in life (33% vs. 37%, respectively). This gap reflects the substantial difference that exists between LGBT women and non-LGBT women. The comparable figures for men do not vary by LGBT status.

So basically, stigma and discrimination may be decreasing, but that doesn’t mean we’re doing too well. This is really disheartening. 

YA DON’T SAY.
