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

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...

I haven't gotten in the habit of keeping track of when special days or months are related to social justice topics so it took me by surprise when I discovered that July is Disability Pride month! 

Given that, I quickly changed my publishing schedule around to prioritize a big disability-related project I had been working on but... it's not done yet. So in the mean time, in lieu of a new blog post this week, I thought I'd offer you a compilation of my favorite articles about disability, chronic...

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may have noticed that things have changed a little bit around here! And that’s because Yopp now officially has its own logo!!!! 
 

A few months ago, I began brainstorming ideas for potential merchandise for Yopp (specifics to be announced later) and realized that if I was going to make merch, I needed a logo. I really had no idea what I wanted in a logo and while I have some basic drawing and design skills, I’m really not enough of an artist to create...

CN: brief discussion of sexuality, sexism influenced medical neglect, reproductive disorders, and disability.

Remember my interview about sex and disability last month on the podcast Into Your Body

Story time: Before that podcast was recorded, Vi La Bianca, a previous guest blogger for Yopp, invited me to come onto her youtube show Secular Sexuality to discuss sex and disability. To be honest, I felt nervous about interviewing about a topic I don't particularly specialize in-- while I talk a...

A few weeks ago I got together with my friend DJ and we had a conversation about disability and sex for his podcast Into Your Body. Dj’s podcast explores some progressive takes on sexuality and your relationship with your body, particularly exploring how these topics intersect with particular marginalizations. 
 

This was my very first podcast and my first recorded interview and I had a really good time talking about some of the deeper nuances of disability and how many of the strategies that you...

After my "Close the Camps" article went semi-viral I received a lot of messages and emails from people interested to talk to me, compliment my work, and get my input on their options for activism. It was a big shift from the level of activity around my blog that I'm used to! 

But perhaps one of the most exciting contacts I made from this process was writer and poet Jamie Dedes reaching out to me, asking me if she could interview me for her blog The Poet by Day, a website with focus on poetry, w...

Want to have your writing published on this blog? Yopp! Is now accepting pitches and submissions for publication! 

You may have noticed that my publication rate has decreased somewhat in the last six months, which is due to a combination of physical and mental health issues. Writing has been disproportionately affected by these issues and it's clear I need to take a break from forcing myself to make that happen so that I can be happier and healthier later. 

In order to ensure that this blog does...

New blog posts will hopefully be coming your way very soon, but in the meantime, here’s another revamped blog post, originally published a year ago under the title, “Stop Sharing This Graphic for Book Lovers.” It critiques a regularly shared meme as not only false but also pushing some misguided and harmful views about physical books vs. any other form of reading. The post has been updated but you can still read it at the same URL as before.
 

“The problem isn’t really this specific graphic, thou...
