i'm missing a place with people to say good morning to.

but it turns out the "adhd" repository is literally just the default README template with no other changes, it feels so on brand to abandon a repo so quickly that i guess i'm ok with it

I just found a repository at my client that's called "adhd", and i was ready to get indignant about their naming a service after a neurological disorder so brazenly

I'm looking to spend some of my end of year "personal development budget" from work on books. What are your book suggestions, around any of: anarchism, people power, direct action, anti-racism, anti-nationalism?

I'd especially like to read more on Africa, Asia, & Latin America?

do neurotypical people just decide to clean and then go and clean?

rant on disability and mental illness 

I deeply dislike terms for disabilities which seeks to be inclusive and "tolerant" but really just exposes their proponent's ignorance and hypocrisy.

Status-quoers:
Don't call me "differently abled". I'm not differently abled, I'm disabled. Don't make it sound prettier for your own vanity.

I'm *not coping* in *your society* and you're not being inclusive or supportive, because "differently abled" implies that your society enables and supports *different ways to function* while leading a dignified and healthy life.

If you want to call me "differently abled" you must first implement "to each according to need, from each according to ability". There's no way around it.

Until that happens, acknowledge the fact that society is content with people like me leading a stressful, unfulfilling and unhealthy life, always wondering if tomorrow I'll be able to have a hot meal or if I'll have to beg relatives for a place to stay.
