Ein Feature über die Situation pflegebedürftiger Kinder in der DDR (und heute) die in Psychiatrien untergebracht wurden. Sehr dicke Contentwarnung für verschiedene Formen von Gewalt.
Every bit of pandemic mental health advice includes "stay connected with friends and enjoy cultural events online!"
This means a LOT more screen time for me. I normally try to limit it because my eyes get tired and sore so easily.
I'm on Day Two of a headache that I can't shake, and I think it's eye-related. But I'm gonna keep looking at my screens more than usual because what else can I do? It's not as good as really seeing my friends or going to stuff, but it's all I get.
Covid-19, Ableismus, Eugenik, Capslock
WO IST EUER ANTIABLEISMUS?!
DAS IST EUGENIK!
re: Covid, eugenics, generally negative but something for the privileged to read
the concept of putting oppressed people at the bottom of the priority list during crisis situations is not new. family of comrades have reported healthcare workers withholding CPR for loved ones even though no DNR (do not resuscitate order) was in place. Doctors have tried to force families to sign DNRs even though the disabled patient wanted interventional measures to be used.
Washington state can turn you away if you have congestive heart failure, lung failure, cirrhosis, or if your baseline health status is poor health or low energy.
Alabama doctors and nurses can refuse to treat you if you have intellectual disabilities, cystic fibrosis, HIV, cancer, or are otherwise immune compromised.
Tennessee has decided that they don't need to provide emergency medical care to people with multiple sclerosis, ALS, cystic fibrosis, traumatic brain injuries, or are on dialysis.
this is not an exhaustive list. nor is it inclusive of all states with laws like these on the books. as a former emergency medical worker, a mass casualty incident (which is what covid-19 is) was our worst nightmare, but when obscenely rich people exist in the world, it's not that we don't have the means to treat everyone who needs it, it's that we've never prioritized society's most vulnerable people.
add to that the media's perpetuation of bigotry and profiting off the idea that certain people are less valuable than others, and things are pretty dire for those of us who are already at risk.
reminder: intelligence is eugenics bullshit, and we don't fuck sapiosexuals

Coronavirus, Spoonie Rant, Eugenetik
Sie töten Kranke, Behinderte und Alte Menschen. Sie töten uns, völlig selbstverständlich und versuchen es nicht mal zu verstecken.
Tumore werden nicht operiert, fast keine Bypasse gelegt, Chemotherapie wird ausgesetzt, Patienten mit Mobilitätseinschränkungen, Patienten über 80, manchmal 75 oder 70 werden nicht mehr beatmet. Menschen aus Pflegeheimen werden gar nicht erst ins Krankenhaus gebracht, lieber gleich „schnelle Sterbebegleitung“. Menschen rufen nach „besonderer Isolation von Risikogruppen“ sprich: alle an einer Stelle einsperren, damit die anderen weiter machen können.
Sie töten uns. Guckt nicht weg. Das ist Eugenetik.
Anmerkung: Ja, nicht überall. Ja, wenn nicht genug Maschinen da sind, können nicht alle beatmet werden. Ja, ne Pandemie ist nicht planbar. Das Gesundheitssystem privatisieren, Abwarten weil es ja „nur die Alten und Kranken trifft“ und andere Entscheidungen haben es viel schlimmer gemacht als es hätte sein können.
Absolutely horrifying, Capitalism Kills
I just learned about how Bayer knowingly sold HIV-contaminated Factor VIII to haemophiliacs in latin america and asia
My boyfriend in philly is a type-a haemophiliac if he doesn't take Factor VIII every 48 hours he Just Dies. 40% of Hong Kong's haemophiliacs were infected. Bayer suffered no consequences. I'm so disgusted and furious. Markets cannot be allowed to control medicine.
Is there space on your homestead for one without youth and vigor
Is there room in your syndicate for the one who rocks and shouts
Does your committee have time for the one who stutters and struggles
Do these tiny homes come with ramps and aides
Will this new utopia hold space for us
Where do the elders sit
Where do the strange ones live
Where is the quiet place
Where we can go to mourn ourselves and others lost
Berlin, more capacities in segregated facilities, -
Not the news I needed when waking up: Just like in the last years, instead of adhering to the CRPD, Berlin keeps on building up capacities in segregated institutions for disabled kids (de: https://www.rbb24.de/politik/beitrag/2020/01/scheeres-ausbau-foerderzentren-geistige-entwicklung-berlin.html)
This affects us directly because we have to justify why we don’t want segregation for kid/have to fight segregation with every capacity that exists 😞
disability and ableism, ukpol
tldr: things are very bad for disabled people in the uk right now, and with brexit looming and Boris re-elected they're only set to get worse
please help out your disabled comrades if you can. we often become essentially invisible because of problems communicating, physically getting outside, otherwise making their voices heard etc., but we are still here.
Processing my experiences of discrimination as mother to a disabled kid and kids in general.
