For structures that have no entry steps, ConvertaStep also makes ramps of three sizes that come in a manual as well as automatic version.

This welcome mat converts into a fully accessible wheelchair ramp. Beautiful and functional design. I want it.

Some more info, for people who are interested.

First of all, I can’t believe this has almost 3,000 notes. I’m so glad that people are sharing this - both as a cool design, and also as an important accessibility feature.
Thanks to pseudosoph for linking to additional info (above) regarding weight limits, lift height, and product background — the creator is a wheelchair user himself! Very cool stuff. Keep sharing!

Ahead of Toronto’s upcoming municipal elections, Ward 2 candidate Munira Abukar has been the target of racial hatred and vandalism. City councillors, members of the public, and other candidates have outwardly shown support for her on Twitter, including mayoral candidate Olivia Chow (who has herself been the target of racism and threats of violence on a large scale).

#IStandWithMunira trended city-wide last night, and you can donate to her campaign here to help replace the signs and pictures that have been destroyed. x

Dear white people, this is what being a token minority in America is really like 

White people can usually count on having white bosses, white teachers and white friends. But for people of color, coping with being the only person of your kind in an overwhelmingly white space can be a daily struggle. 

Of course, the institutionalized inequalities of modern society haven’t stopped minorities from showing up and participating anyway, even when environments are so monochromatic they may feel outright unwelcome. Many people of color are all too familiar with those moments and have taken to social media, inspired by the upcoming film Dear White People, to show the world what it looks and feels like to be a token minority, using the hashtag #TokenTuesday. 

It’s not all that fun being the token Follow micdotcom

It’d be nice if a source and a description was left for this image because it’s actually apart of series of photographs, by the ABC, for their Dreambox collection. Dreambox explores the dreams of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through photographs. The woman pictured here is Margaret Oenpelli and she is from the Barunga Community. Check out the full collection of dreams here.

Some men push the button as far as saying that porn is actually ‘feminist’ because women make more money than men in the industry. To which I reply that men in porn are paid to orgasm, while women are paid to suffer, which is why they deserve and receive a higher monetary compensation. But money is a bad substitute for dignity and body integrity.

I am tired of men who, by wanting so hard to justify their porn use without acknowledging the harm done to women, over-rationalise some aspect of it while closing their eyes to the obvious. And when we ask them if they would like to be treated like the women in porn, they say ‘of course not, but that does not mean that those girls don’t, it is not because YOU won’t like these things to be done to your body that THEY do not like it’. Because ‘those girls’ are so different then us, regular human beings…

The fact is that women have been brainwashed to think that enduring pain is an integral part of their duty of performing femininity. Women harm their feet to walk in high heels. Women voluntarily submit themselves to painful surgeries to have bigger breast. They go through painful waxing procedures. Women are good women when they overcome their pain with a smile. And now, thanks to porn, girls are seeking advice on the internet about how to give deepthroated blowjobs without puking and how to make anal sex less painful. Men are never expected to do such things…

"men in porn are paid to orgasm, while women are paid to suffer" - and that is fucking crucial

‎’Slut’ is attacking women for their right to say yes. ‘Friend Zone’ is attacking women for their right to say no.

And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it.  (via madgay)

woah. accurate.

Jesus thankyou for replying about what bullshit that 'over 60's not being able to vote' thing was. It keeps appearing on my dash and I always want to say something but I know barely anyone will see it. Firstly I've forgotten the name of the comedian who said it but he was clearly joking and people actually saw that and agreed? As if people suddenly become irrelevant when they're old? I can't believe how many people read that and at least sort of agreed.

I know! Actually horrendous.

And you just know it’s the same people who think that there should be an IQ test to vote.

I love the reading of Katniss as asexual and totally support that canon but also I like the idea that different people develop into their sexuality at different rates and we never really see unsexual 16 year olds in media even though it’s perfectly normal to not be interested in physical relationships yet at that age and I feel like she embodies that idea too.
