This will be a LOVELY reference for any steampunk/mechanically minded fans out there.
#ae overheats shall be my tag for ranting about personal life, so you are aware. may contain triggering topics such as depression and self harm. this is essentially a side blog and a place for venting, after all.

Bitches best represent.
Acceptibility seems to go like this:
Transabled(DID)>Therians>Otherkin>Fictives>Multiple Systems>Multiple Systems that include fictives>crossethnic
How do you feel about this? Where does it get too absurd/silly for you?
your representation is difficult to follow and not based on observable evidence. also, it is to be noted that DID has little relation to transableism. BIID is not the same thing, either.
Here is a well-written, thoughtful submission I received about transableism. Please check it out:
Somewhere along the line, Tumblr decided all identities are valid. For the most part, this is a good thing. But some things are just so ridiculous that I have to cry foul.
I chose to write about transability (which, if you go with English word morphs, is the correct term) because I have personal experience with disability. I do not rely on mobile aids; I have what is known as an invisible disability.
Invisible disabilities are disabilities that are hidden easily. Those of us with invisible disabilities have what is known as passing privilege, a term borrowed from race literature. We can pass as fully-abled. Our group is primarily made up of mental illnesses, bone and joint problems, and chronic pain and illness. That does not make our disability less of a disability, and being invisibly disabled comes with its own set of problems. (For more information, see N. Ann Davis, “Invisible Disability”, Ethics, 2005; it’s a long but enjoyable read.)
I have spent years being mocked and physically attacked for having physical impairments. I was ostracized for no other reason than being visibly different; I was still being mocked for it my senior year of high school, six years after I had surgery to try to fix the problem, because I was still “the girl with the back problems”. I developed mental disorders as a result of how I was treated for being visibly disabled. Becoming disabled is a hand you would never choose to be dealt, but it’s a hand you play because there is only one alternative.
So for those who claim to be transabled, who say they are supposed to be blind or deaf, I have no sympathy.
i have plenty of medication and doctors already, thank you. my identity is the least of your, and our concerns.
