My name is Christina. This is a personal blog.

Light skinned mestiz@ in FL

Fat, queer, genderescent, disabled, mentally ill, married, infertile.

I live with a myriad of chronic illnesses and chronic pain.

I own a pug Bugsy and a boston terrier Lola and a cat named Eris.

Please don't hesitate to call me out if I ever say or reblog something inappropriate.

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

I feel like a prisoner inside my own body. This is the reality for someone with a chronic illness. And it’s a hard reality to deal with.

I’ve worked out my frustrations by creating a recipe blog! Please let me know what you think.

I’m not 100% happy about the theme setup, but it’s good enough for now. I’m just terrible at html and I did my best, but I’d really like to add a header if possible. If anyone knows how, I’d be much obliged. :)

And it’s not so much what they said about me, because I’ve been hearing that crap most of my life and they haven’t come up with a fresh insult yet. 

But one of the pictures they stole also had Bugsy in it, and they insulted him. Called my poor dog fat and overfed, said that I must be abusing him. All pugs look like puddles of chub when they’re laying down; you can’t tell how healthy anyone is from one picture. Bugsy is 100% the right size for a pug, and lives a very good life.

And that’s how you know that the people on that site are useless assholes. So petty as to insult a dog in their quest to feel superior to us fatties. Whatev.

So yeah, I need assistance with blanking out my blog to anyone who’s not a follower please.


Can someone please teach me how to blank out my blog so people who aren’t followers can’t see it? I have at most rudimentary knowledge of html and need help.

I still really need help with this. Someone stole some of my selfies and posted them on that awful subreddit and I would like to prevent it from happening again.


I’m having a bad bad day, so I thought I’d finally do the 6-selfies thing I’ve been tagged in a billion times ;)

I’m overwhelmed at the idea of tagging people, lol, so I think everyone should do it!

What's Up with the ACA? - ACSWA


"Last year, 40% Americans polled did not know that the ACA, aka Obamacare, formerly Healthcare Reform, was the law of the land. Congress enacted it of course, in 2010, but it was controversial from the start, barely survived the first Supreme Court ruling (5-4 to uphold its constitutionality), and remains a target of lawsuits and court rulings that threaten to eviscerate it. Maybe the public was not so much ignorant as prescient, for the Supreme Court has continued to take cases that challenge various aspects of the law, and sometimes has disallowed its key elements."

Check out our blog post on the Affordable Care Act, followers! Has the ACA impacted your life and practice?


I’m not really interested in seeing posts about what illnesses are worse and crap like that. We all feel like walking death, we all have days where we feel like everything is over. No need to say who feels they’re MORE disabled. 
As the ancient proverb says: We’re all in this together. 


the truth is out there.

The problem with metaphors like “I was blind and now I see” is they overwhelmingly position the disability as the negative. When you’re “blind to the consequences”, when your voice “falls on deaf ears”, when you need to “stand up for yourself”, those are all negative situations that should be rectified. In contrast, having your “eyes opened”, being “all ears” and “standing your ground” are situations that are generally applauded. Sadly, I never hear anybody being told to “sit their ground”. Disability is synonymous with lack of insight, inability to communicate and not having the power or the intelligence to have agency over your own life. Sound familiar? Those are all stereotypes that are associated with all kinds of disability.

So freaked out about something I don’t feel free to talk about on here and I don’t know what to do
