Anonymous said: Tbh this new idea that loads of nb people are just "teenage girls trying to be cool" (which is not true at all and the teenage girl part reeks of misogyny) kind of reminds me of the whole "teenage girls pretend to be bi to be cool" myth and think that saying that helps the real bisexuals/real trans people™ when all it really does is make people doubt their identities and feel insecure about them.

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice.”

Martin Luther King, Jr in a 1955 response to an accusation that he was “disturbing the peace” by his activism during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Montgomery, Alabama

His words remind us that it was and still is, true justice, not simply “peace” which is the end goal of any civil rights movement —no matter how uncomfortable that may make so-called moderates, the privileged or members of the oppressor class

Hollow calls for “love & peace” without directly acknowledging and addressing structural racism, racial profiling and especially police brutality (a subject King specifically addressed in his most famous speech) are meaningless platitudes and offer comfort to only the oppressor, not the oppressed

#Peace Without Justice Is Oppression

It is a controversial topic and one that may make for uncomfortable viewing.

BBC drama Call The Midwife is to tell the story of a pair of disabled lovers forced apart and ridiculed after the woman becomes pregnant.

Disability charities yesterday welcomed the plotline, saying it highlights how far society has come since the judgmental 1950s in which the programme is set.

The episode, which is to be aired on Sunday night, will feature the characters of Sally Harper, who has Down’s syndrome, and Jacob Milligan, who has cerebral palsy.

The pair live in an institution, having been sent there by their parents – as was common at  the time.

But after they fall in love and Sally becomes pregnant, the  couple are separated and Sally faces ridicule from her mother and father.

The episode deals with the prejudice and stigma she would have experienced.

Call The Midwife is shown on BBC One before the nine o’clock watershed, and in the past storylines featuring abortion, incest and infidelity have shocked viewers. But yesterday campaigners welcomed the inclusion of disability and love as a theme.

The character of Sally is played by Sarah Gordy, and Jacob by Colin Young. Both actors have the disability that they portray on screen.
