Conveniently, [personal profile] davidgillon made a really good post yesterday about the 2016 US Presidential election and candidates' attitudes towards disability rights/platforms/activists.

(Conveniently because I always mean to make Follow Friday posts but then forget to ask people permission, or forget what day of the week it is.)

[personal profile] davidgillon is worth following for other posts too, like about writing and SFF and disability also other activist issues of note.

Also, to combine a short and related linkspam, two articles and a storify that may be of interest (though these are non-dw):

7 ways my non-disabled friends get it right

Why disabled people write about ableism

Storify: #DisabilityTooWhite (a twitter conversation about intersections of race, disability, erasure, and white privilege)

So I haven't seen a lot about this recently on social media, which makes me think that the organizers of this campaign are just bad at social media. BUT it is an important issue, and I can't deal with tweeting about it in 140 character chunks, so I'm just going to share here for now.
cn: cut for those on a news fast, but with a request for signal boosting about DC Statehood and budget issues )

so my mom went to the ER because her Super Bad Lupus Flare is maybe gallbladder related. I'm hoping it's "just" gallstones or something necessitating a gallbladder removal, and not Lupus that has progressed to organ attacks.

also, a part of me that I am not entirely proud of is SUPER HAPPY that at least it's not me in the ER the Friday of a holiday weekend.

good thoughts appreciated. leaving comments off because my email is overwhelming as it is right now and I am already hiding from it.
