white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
white people, this is why nobody trusts you

PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS CAN HAVE SMALL CARS NOW, THEY DON’T HAVE TO RELY ON EXPENSIVE LIFTS TO HELP GET THEM INTO CARS, THEY DON’T HAVE TO MODIFY THEIR CARS FOR THEIR NEEDS BECAUSE THE CAR IS ALREADY DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THEM. THIS IS ACTUALLY SO GREAT AND IT GIVES SO MANY PEOPLE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE MORE INDEPENDENT AND IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY!
Have I reblogged this already? Don’t care.
AYYY INDEPENDENCE FOR MOBILITY DEVICE USERS YEAAAAAH!!!
This shit is my jam! I don’t use a wheelchair myself more than very very occasionally (knock on wood, I have had to in airports before) but this is great!
