Today, we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.” -MLK, Jr. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/BiKpvRhCop
From the inbox. Blind people are comfortable living with their family, not making anything of themselves. it’s probably because most disability systems make it hard to climb out of the holes they put you in. also blind people are taught to be lazy. Being lazy is easy. Stop that.
But I’m thinking that, with damn near everyone in this country getting knocked ass over teakettle when it comes to their jobs and living situations maybe a tiny bit of humility is in order. Every person now congratulating themselves for being better than those living with their parents could be out on their asses with very little notice.
86% of disabled people will spend more money to use a website that is accessible because they appreciate the effort – PwD are more loyal and will pay more. The click away cost is high!
People with disabilities don’t spend more to use accessible sites out of the goodness of our hearts. We pick the accessible site first, and then deal with any possible price increase, because it’s either that or we can’t buy the product.
The implication here seems to be that sites should be accessible because the willingness of people with disabilities to put up with spending more money to use an accessible website means an easy way for businesses to make higher profits.
Web accessibility isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s the right thing to do. I’m all for a business case, but this is akin to some sort of passive income scheme, and really, it’s sick.

Just logged back in: I apologize for my previous subtweet of this. I was using an old 70’s-80’s technique for calling somebody a c*** without writing/saying c***, just using a sound-alike to call Trump a c***
Deleting previous, largely because this one clarifies the c*** part https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1323612549040975873
Being kissed while you’re asleep is one of the most purest forms of love.

“Intent is all very nice and fine but it is not the be all end all of what happened. Just because you didn’t intend to be a shitlord doesn’t mean you weren’t a shitlord. I’ll accept it occasionally as a mitigating factor but in the end, you’re still a shitlord.”
“SMH to all you people getting on "Meet the blind month" like it's offensive. Some of you are women, some of you are people of colour, some of you have autism/fall on the autism spectrum, some of you are LGBT… You get publicity already but you don't complain about that. Shut up.”
