how do you tell someone ‘you’re 99% of my daily stressors and i’d like you to stop’
My life’s cruelest irony is that the person who taught me that:
is the person who causes me the most mental and emotional anguish and with almost every interaction, and isn’t even a big part of my life anymore.
And I’m about to hand them over a leash and a reason to order me around to escape an even worse person

note that this is not an excuse to start telling people to install this extension in response to being told that your audio players are horrible. the correct answer will always be for people to stop going out of their way to make places inaccessible for those living with trauma and disability.
this is for us to defend ourselves with, not for anyone to paint a target on our back with this as the brush.
spread the word about this extension, but don’t make it our obligation to install it. it’s still your obligation to make public spaces in your control safe for ALL people to access.
the next time you think you’re lonely, just remember you have about 25 billion white blood cells in your body protecting your sorry little ass with their life. you have 25 billion friends who would die for you. no need for tears.
I actually needed that.

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken.
And that’s fucked up.
