CN: extensive discussion of the escalation and resistance of fascism; mention of 45, suicide, impact of the pandemic, police brutality and police corruption. 

Kella here to give the context for today’s guest post, which is a little unusual. If your social circles are progressive in the same way mine are, then you’ve heard warnings about the continuing escalation of fascism, and the threat of violent backlash if Trump loses the presidential election. According to The Guardian, "Nearly half of all Americans (47%) say they are worried about the possibility of Trump losing the election but r...

CN: extensive discussion of plurality, dissociative disorders, mental health, and the impact of trauma, ableism; brief discussion of amnesia.  
 

For every type of marginalization you encounter, there will be an invisible barrier to understanding the humanity of those who face structural disenfranchisement that you do not. Even beyond gaining the knowledge that these structural inequities exist and have been forced upon an innocent group of people, we still carry with us a tendency to view these people with the bias that our society has taught us

As a disabled person, I find that even if an...

Today I have TWO new merch designs for you that are now available for purchase on our Redbubble store! Both of these designs are 100% original and I created them myself!

"Yes, Thank you I have tried yoga please suggest literally anything else" accompanied by a rainbow shooting star reminiscent of "the more you know!" is for anyone with a chronic condition or illness who is just really done with having yoga suggested as a solution. Maybe you already do yoga and you're still sick/in pain. Maybe it makes your condition worse! Make it's just not your thing. There are many reasons this design woul...

CN: general discussion of recent and historical voter suppression; brief mention of the pandemic, fascism, and climate change. 

If voting didn’t have a real impact, politicians wouldn’t work so hard to prevent marginalized people from doing it.

 

This year's election in the United States is incredibly important and there are even more factors working against us than usual: We know that there will likely be interference from foreign governments with our election; the pandemic has made in-person voting outright dangerous and some republicans have put up resistance to switching to mail-in vo...

CN: extensive discussion of police brutality, police tactics, institutional racism, brief discussion of of gender-based violence, sexual assault, and mass shootings

We know that fiction can be based on fact but how often is fact influenced by fiction? The beloved show Star Trek has long been famous for inspiring the invention of many of the "futuristic" technologies used in the show. The Black Lives Matter movement has repeatedly called on us to dismantle and recreate our law enforcement systems, to replace the current oppressive, violent, and racist version. Now, Dennis Upkins takes a look a...

Are you interested in seeing your writing published on Yopp? You are in luck! Yopp is officially open to submissions for guest posts, once again. 

Yopp relies on a diversity of voices in order to support its mission of centering marginalized voices. While I write the majority of Yopp's articles, I cannot offer first hand experiences for all marginalizations. The wider variety of experiences that can be represented, the better Yopp is equipped to accomplish its goals

Articles on Yopp are engaging, informative, thoughtful, and in-depth. I’m looking for pieces that prioritize harm reduction...

CN: extensive description of the experience of autism including ableist treatment, triggers, and sensory overload.  Mention of ableist term. 


Autism advocacy as a branch of activism is something I've learned a huge amount about just in the last few years, and one of the repeating problems the community faces has been how any "advice" on interacting with autistic people that's published in large scale media sources, is exclusively written by neurotypical or allistic (the opposite of autistic) people. Having grown my circle of openly autistic friends in these last few years, it was very qui...

When I started the process of developing a logo for Yopp back in April, I had one goal in mind: Start making merch! 

While we officially launched our merch page a few weeks ago with the introduction of the Ableism Bingo Cards, we now have a larger merch store on Redbubble that we'll be adding to as new designs are finished! 

To start, we have our merch sporting our new logo. 

You can get one of five different variations of the logo-- Pale pink, rose, maroon, full color, and full color with our website-- on a whole bunch of different products. Here are just a few of them to get you inspired bu...

CN: General discussion of food and healthy eating habits, mental health, and the emotional impact of the pandemic, brief mention of bodily functions, and white supremacy. Extensive discussion of rats including photos! 
 
Everything happening in the world at the moment is a lot and it can be easy to default to just disconnecting from current events, or pushing through without taking care of yourself which can result in burnout. Neither of these extremes is ideal. As a change of pace, I’m offering you this lovely, silly self-care article, with the hopes that it both gives you good reminders for...
