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.

If you are healthy, please reblog.
If you are sick, please reblog.
If you have a disability, please reblog.
If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.
If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.
If you are a human being, please reblog.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 

Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

First things first, OP, I am so sorry that your friend has to deal with that.  It’s super not okay.

Governments also do this stuff- it’s fucked up.  For a while the city of Berkeley was citing ALL cars w/ handicapped placards in a area around the Trader Joe’s on University.  My then partner got a ticket for a few hundred dollars, despite it being against state law (in CA a placard grants you the same benefits as all civilian/residential parking permit).  When he went to confront the station about it, he met 3 other people who were there to do the same.

It still astounds and frustrates me that this happened to enough people that he randomly met 3 others going through the same thing.  It makes me think that hundreds must have been ticketed in the few weeks that Berkeley was violating the state law (also, it wasn’t a problem until the TJs went in so hm…).  What about the people who couldn’t get off work to fight the ticket?  Who couldn’t make it to the station no matter what the reason?  Who didn’t know they could fight it?

Sigh. Anyway.

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

And eating meat.
