Thank you so much for joining me today on my blog! I've got something today that I want to talk about that has just fired me up, you guys. And so let's just jump right into it. I'm going to share a screen capture here for you guys. I received a comment a few days ago on a video I posted. The video is of me holding Christian while Christian smiles. During the video, I give him a kiss on the cheek while a song plays in the background. The video text says "When people tell me that Christian shouldn't have been born" and then the lyrics to the song says "Let me show you what you're missing. Paradise."So somebody actually had the... I don't even know what the word is... I would say low intelligence, but I don't even think it comes from that, and I don't want to insult people with intellectual disabilities because they know how to be decent humans. But the had the audacity or gall or whatever to comment on that video and say, "he suffering just like a dog aging he can't even see or enjoy life just like how we put animals down for getting old or for certain conditions he should be put down no events, but he's living in misery."
But let's break this down a little bit further. So let's let's take this first phrase in the drivel of a comment, "he suffering just like a dog ageing[.]" Not even "he's." There's no apostrophe to be found and not even an "s" on the end of "he" to make the conjunction yet this person somehow thinks they have the authority to instruct me on my child? Besides that, this is a stranger on the internet who knows no more of us than the 10 second clip he commented on. Secondly, this is a video of Christian smiling and being held and kissed my his mama. Okay, stranger on the internet. What evidence do you have to support your proposition that he's suffering? I'll wait, and I'll be waiting until eternity because there is none. He isn't suffering. But the fact that this person would make that statement as if it's a sure fact is what makes me the most angry.
So my question is why do people like this get a voice? Why do people like this get a say in what disabled people should or shouldn't be doing? Because I'm here to propose that they don't. I'm here to propose that people like Talavera Matthew need to be shut up and not allowed to speak in public arenas that involve people that he is openly and actively discriminating against. I'm advocating that people like Talavera Matthew need their social medias taken away from them until they stop presenting Nazi aligned, ableist propaganda. That's all this is, propaganda. None of it's true. It's all based on and built on lies and false pretenses. It's all based in and built on Nazi aligned, false information.
If you see something like this happening on social media or in real life, speak up,. and don't let it go. Call out what is wrong and replace it with what is right. Because if we don't, the voices like Talavera Matthews are the ones who get heard and we cannot let voices like his be what dominates the conversations around disability. Our voices must be louder and filled with the truth. So I'm asking you not to attack, but to speak up in truth. Be righteously louder than the voices of eugenics advocates and ableist.
I hope this fight means as much to you as it does to me. I am dedicated to spending my life to make the world a better place for Christian and others like him.
