Jessie, Isabella, and I are not typical bloggers. We write a few times a year and will submit 40-75 blogs. I have blogs yet to be published from when we first began writing. If the timeline seems off or I mention only 1 or 2 daughters this is why. EasyStand chooses when to publish the content. We’ve been writing for over 3 years at this point. We do not write on a weekly basis because we do this for charity and our lives are crazy busy.
My wife Jessie has her own disabilities to deal with, but she tends to write from the perspective of a physician or as my wife. She does this because she is a very private and protective person. Given her history I can not blame her for that. It also does not help when internet trolls comment on her blogs attacking her. “She doesn’t understand the struggle” or some bs along those lines. You can take your judgement and shove it… I think you know where.
My wife has multiple disabilities. She is a psychiatrist who chose to work for CPS where she could do the most good. You told her the word disabled was as offensive as the N word. We’re not white and you’re an idiot arguing with a doctor over a medical term. Girl Jesus will give you a verbal ass whipping in a heartbeat if you test her so please don’t be stupid and do that. She is a pastor, but she is human too. One of the things I admire most about her is her brutal honesty that you don’t see. My wife is probably the first blogger to have blogs rejected for being too aggressive. She is the sweetest girl in the world. She’s petite and adorable. She wants to save the world from poverty, ignorance, racism, bigotry, hate, and violence. She’ll also coldcock you straight to the ground if you’re stupid enough to try to use her size against her to intimidate her. We call her Girl Jesus for her heart. One of my favorite Jessieisms: “Don’t make me go crazy black grandma on you for acting ugly. God don’t like ugly, but He loves you. I will knock you the f@$& out. I’m not really Jesus ok?” My wife can handle herself.
By now you’ve most likely seen blogs written by our oldest daughter Bella. You can see that my not so little angel is a handful with very strong opinions. She is only 16, but is very much a young adult that makes me one proud father. She wants to continue blogging, but I have my fears. Her autism makes her extremely blunt. She is still a child and I don’t want to see her attacked. She is exactly like her mother. She is outspoken against any injustice. Everyone should love each other and see an equal when they look at another person. She has no fear of going toe to toe with any adult. She is overly educated as she picks up on every conversation. How many 16 year olds can join a political conversation and make legitimate points? How many have compassion for others at that age? How many can discuss corruption in foreign policy and government? She is 16, please remember that you are commenting to a child about what may be considered adult subject matter.
You may not agree with our opinions and that’s fine. Don’t you dare say we don’t understand the struggle. We live it every day from every angle. We choose not to be bitter jackasses about it. We speak the truth of what is happening in this world and our lives. We are probably not the family for you if you want to cry ableism, live in a poor me party, or not take responsibility for changes you don’t make for your own situation. We are all equal, but equality does not apply to your frame of mind and I’ll be the a$$hole who says it.
