Pinned oot

Hi, I'm Ada (pronounced "Ayy-duh"). Decided to make a second account here since I've heard good things about this place. Sometimes I draw and take pictures, sometimes I post them, but mostly I'll just be posting whatever is in my head at the moment. I enjoy reading when I have the time (Jenny Lawson is my favorite author) and listening to the same musical artists over and over until I get sick of them. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!!

I'm going to keep saying it until you hear me. It's so much easier to not being a bigoted dickhead.

It's just better for you to not carry around that hate all the time.

BREAKING: Free Speech Extremist Shocked to Learn that First Amendment Doesn't Require People to Listen to Him

This lil' friend kept flying in the way of where I was trying to walk. Eventually they decided to try and blend in with the pavement.

#Sincere When you're putting out reminders to caption images, please remember that there are people who, due to their own disabilities, may find it difficult or impossible to caption images. Don't shame them if they still want to share images. If you want to help, you can add a description in the replies.

I know of two people specifically to whom this applies, but I won't tag them as this isn't really about them specifically.

@AdaAimee I'm sorry people do that even here, it really sucks. I think people here get tunnel vision about the struggles they know about, and forget that they need to be understanding and open to learning about struggles they don't know about. Judging you for it is very uncool. :(

I've seen one other major poster expressing struggles with writing image descriptions and expressing the same desire for understanding that you are. I guess it isn't sinking in.

It's after 4am. I'm gonna try to sleep now.

I'm sorry I can't do more.

I have dysgraphia. I cannot use image descriptions because of it.

I'm making this public because I find myself constantly being put in a position where I have to chose between not sharing my photography because my disability prevents me from using descriptions, or posting and upsetting those who claim I am uncaring for not using that feature.

I'm not trying to screw over people who need descriptions in order to participate with their feeds. But I don't know how to fix this. I am disabled too.
