i think there is also a difference between like, ‘this thing happened bc i am a disabled woman’, and ‘this is how disabled women are treated’, as well? u kno?
yes that 2
i mix them up because i get over-zealous about connecting dots.
i think sometimes i try to justify my experiences as “things that happened because i am a Disabled Woman” — ever since i learned that format was a thing you could do — even when the connection is tenuous at best
i mean there are some things that def wouldnt have happened to me if i weren’t disabled
but there’s also shitty experiences and perceptions that have more to do with my individual neuroses/mannerisms/upbringing than with anything widespread, and i’m sorry for the times i have generalized those
it hurts to not see your experience reflected anywhere so it can be comforting to attribute EVERYTHING to [marginalized status] but like, sometimes it’s just your really weird stupid life.
but then some things do provide common ground. just don’t overdo it.

the other is me reacting enthusiastically and with intermittent capslock to fic ideas about cpt holt domming peralta

my only real advice for dealing with ocd is “have you tried… purposely not fulfilling compulsions as self-harm?” but that is kind of, uh
