Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.29.14): At around 1:30AM CST, the police have released the unjustly arrested protesters. This is still some of the most ridiculous shit I’ve ever seen, but at least folks are back out and headed home to their families. The struggle continues. No justice, no peace! #staywoke #farfromover (PT I) (PT II) (PT III)

I think it’s really telling that the only people who complain about me using wheelchairs when I was in the states in, say, malls or other large public buildings.. were able bodied people.

"Oh, you’re too young!"

"You look fine to me."

"Surely you’re not in as much pain as you say."

"There’s no way you feel that sick, it’s an exaggeration right?"

"If you lose weight you won’t be in pain and you can’t do that in a chair." (Yes, I shit you not, I’ve heard that one. Thanks, dude.)

"Is it contagious..?"

"What if someone NEEDS that?"

"I don’t understand why people don’t treat those seriously, they should be ashamed. Young, healthy people taking a chair away from someone who needs it. What if someone comes in here with their grandfather?!" (Said within earshot. Oh, god, their faces when my husband and I just stared them the fuck down.)

I never get that from other people who are ill. Visible or invisible, I never hear from them anything negative or dismissive. I get questions, I get stories, I get conversation and well wishes. Prayers from various religions. Understanding smiles, or shared laughter over bad driving skills in way-too-narrow store shelving areas and the inability to get assistance with reaching things.

Ableism is so thoroughly in society that I essentially expect the worse any time I try to keep myself out of pain and discomfort, and it’s shitty that this should be a concern at all. It shouldn’t be the norm.

Mental illness is like fighting a war where the enemy’s strategy is to convince you that the war isn’t actually happening.

Many other birds can do this!
For example, the male European starling has no innate song - the males put together their songs from other sounds they hear, which can include car alarms, football rattles, etc. The ladies want to hear lots of different sounds - because these sounds are learned, not instinctual, and thus the male is demonstrating his intelligence for the ladies.
The reason birds are able to do this, the reason many species of parrot (and mynah birds) will learn to talk when kept in captivity and sound pretty dang human, is the syrinx.
The syrinx is the avian equivalent of the larynx, but it’s much more complicated and it is right at the base of the trachea where it splits - covering both tubes to the lung. And the left and right sides can be controlled independently. Oh, and because of the way it’s designed, they can use ALL of the air they intake to power the syrinx, which is why birdsong is so loud.
Birds are awesome.
