hey, I'm moving to @byttyrs on radical.town to have an easier time finding the things I write in the future! feel free to follow me there 💛
My name's Madison, Madeleine, or Madeline.
I'm a trans woman w/broad taste in partners gender-wise, & I call that 'gay' for reasons.
I'm a poet, "author," artist, composer, vocalist, ~style icon~, & academic interested in things including social content of genre cliché & premodern notions of gender, sexuality, madness/folly/'oddity' or 'eccentricity' (think: AD(H)D, autism spectrum, OCD, aspects of schizophrenia).
I use the F- & T-slurs a lot. I am both. I'll try to CW them, but I may slip up.
@Thomas does Tennessee have separate words for "city" and "theme park" like the rest of us or are those just fully-merged concepts
Bare in mind this is a UK perspective. I've a lot to say over the idea going around that disabled people can do away with personal cars. First of, yes modified cars are expensive, but there's also ways to acquire via gov schemes like The Motability Scheme. Doubtless things like that will always need more access cos the govs shit. Secondly, public transport in the UK is notoriously awful at being accessible, with trains denying boarding, to platforms only being accessible via stairs. 1/?
Busses routinely never stop to pick up ppl up if they're seen to be in a wheelchair, they literally just drive past the bus stop. Ramps up to trains or busses are often missing. If you're immune compromised, getting stuffed onto a bus isn't exactly great either. Also, what if someone just wants to go to the countryside or whatever and the only way in is via personal transport? Bus stops are often miles away from your intended destination. 2/?
Obviously, public transport needs a massive overhaul and way more accessibility, and there needs to be so much more public transport. But just doing away with cars altogether isn't it and takes away the freedom of disabled people. 3/3
That considered, piracy is only fair trade. I talk about your product in public, I draw fanarts, write fanfictions, compose music for your product? In exchange, I won't pay shit for having it.
Bi trans wombyn, 27. Sometimes I come back here when @byttyrs goes down
18+, minors don't follow, sorry!
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
