Nurse makes heartfelt apology after Atos forced her to trick disabled people out of benefits



^^ i got deducted points for having the remnants of 2 week old chipped nail varnish on. because you know, with a massively painful (and at the time not properly treated) condition, painting your nails once a fortnight means there’s nothing wrong with you. none of this shit surprises me in the least and good on her for speaking out. this kind of game-fixing has been going on as long as i’ve needed help and it tends to affect people with ‘invisible’ illnesses (both physical and mental) the most because they think/know the public will generally let them get away with it. 

"but you don’t look ill!"

fuck off. fuck right off.

no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire

#l laughed for days when i found out that #ancient egyptians used water to reduce friction and move blocks for distances #and that this was literally DEPICTED ON THEIR HIEROGLYPHICS #but ~western archaeologists~ #thought that the pouring of water depicted ~superstitious rituals~ #jfc

stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.

one time when i was like 10 years old or something, there was this kid who would constantly harass me.
and every single time he would do anything the teacher would tell me to “stop being such a tattle tale” and brush me off.

she even brushed me off the time the kid lifted my skirt up and groped my ass bc i was just “overreacting” so any time anyone did shit like that to me i’d just brush it off bc i was such a good teachers pet i didnt want to bother any one so yeah

teaching kids that being a tattle tale is bad and can lead up to them ignoring abusive assholes until they’re in their 20s
