Saw from the Handicapped Individuals’ Perspectives, the Physically Handicapped Persons League Fought for Equal Rights

The man’s experienced the prejudices, the inconveniences firsthand, and he’s, pushing forth for changes, to make the lives of the handicapped individuals, easier here, off of the Newspapers, translated…

The man, who’d been concerned of the benefits shown to handicapped persons for over a decade, Chang, found that the society isn’t friendly enough toward the group, at the end of October of last year, he’d set up the “”Taiwanese Right for Handicapped Person’s Welfare League”, to try and change the problems that the handicapped population may come face-to-face with in their day to day, and pushed forth the values of CRPD, the convention of the rights of persons with disabilities.

“The field of vision from a wheelchair, is completely different from the way the rest of the healthy people see the world!”, Chang who lives in Taipei had set up the association, being a long-time supporter of rights of handicapped persons, there are the members with the multiple disabilities, “The different characteristics of the physical handicaps all have the various sorts of problems, hardships in day-to-day living.”

Chang who is in a wheelchair had focused his attention on the matters of handicapped workers, and the matters of retirement of the handicapped persons. And, transportation and obstacles in getting around physically are also, issues of his primary concerns, like how there’s the height differences from sidewalk to sidewalk without the ramps, may turn into the “invisible killers” of those who needed to get around in a wheelchairs, and the sidewalks being occupied by scooters, forcing the handicapped individuals to walk on the roads, sharing the traffic with cars and scooters.

this is, what the immobilized are faced with, every time they go out…photo from online

Chang told, that setting up the foundation, it wasn’t only to help those who are handicapped, he also hoped that the central government can put an amendment in for the “Rights of the Handicapped Individuals in society” as well, most of the physically handicapped persons felt that they had been borderlined, seen as an odd species, that they are, looking for sympathy from the rest of the population, not only wouldn’t they be protected because of this belief, they’re also, discriminated again, he’d stated, that the handicapped persons don’t need sympathy, pity, what they need and deserved, is, equal rights with the rest of the population.

And so, this, is from the man who’s in a wheelchair, he felt the prejudices that others had treated him with, and experienced firsthand, how inconvenient it is, to become, more mobile, and how dangerous it was, to share the roads with cars and scooters, because there’s no ramp leading to the sidewalks, to get his wheelchair to go on the sidewalks, and he’s bringing that into public’s awareness, hoping, that something will be done about it.

After a Full Recovery from MERS-CoV, the Challenges Only Beginning as People Return to Work & School

Those who’d made their full recoveries from contracting MERS, are now, treated like, the virus itself, because let’s face it, we’re all, afraid, seeing how quickly MERS-CoV is, spreading out, all over the world right now, but this, is the WRONG sort of behavior that will, only, tear the society apart more!  Off of the Newspapers, translated…

“My child had made a full recovery from MERS-CoV contractions, but there are the parents in his school, who’d feared that their own children may get infected, didn’t want my son to return back to school, it made us feel cast out”, a mother called out helplessly, this showed, the trials of those who’d made full recoveries from MERS-CoV contraction come out into the open, the Kaohsiung City started up the “Recovered Care Cases for Those Who Had Formerly Contracted MERS-CoV”, called out to the society to stop labeling, that more tolerance, empathy should be shown to those who’d made the full recoveries.

There are about 14 million of the Taiwanese population who are getting out of quarantine, after they are released from the hospitals, they may be faced with discrimination of the society, and, their challenges to return their lives back to normal, is now, only, begun.  The C.E.O. of the Clinical Psychologist Guild of Kaohsiung, Chen told, a lot of the public believed that the virus is too tough, that there were the cases of the recovered contracting the virus again, worried that being in contact, will make them infected as well, there was the parent of a young child who contracted MERS-CoV, and the young child was forced to transfer out of the preschool, the family is still currently being, counseled, “when we’re helpless, if the therapists can be like a cane, at least, they can help those who’d contracted the virus who’d recovered, part of the way. 

The manager of the health sanitation center set by the Department of Health Welfare & Sanitations, Su told, that there are, an assortment of varied situations with the contracted, there was a mentally ill patient who was quarantined because the family member had contracted the virus, and afterwards, the individual wasn’t allowed back to the facility s/he was living in from before; most of the people who’d contracted MERS-CoV worried that they won’t be accepted back into the society, and not wanted those around them to know they’d contracted the virus, and they felt tried, but are all, unwilling, to seek out counsel.

Su also told, that not only was it hard, for those who made full recoveries from contracting the virus to return back to society, the at-home quarantine individuals are also, targets of a “witch hunt”, and this would cast that shadow on their live; after the care hotlines got started in Kaohsiung, the counselors are able to call those who’d returned back home, and as the cases are willing, to accept this help, then, they’d taken that very important, first step, to begin their, recovery, processes.

And so, this is still, combining the diseases, with the individuals who’d, contracted it, like how us Asians are, discriminated against in the U.S. at the very start of MERS-CoV epidemic?  And that’s, just wrong, I mean, these people had fully recovered, meaning that their swabs, their blood, saliva tests came back clean, with ZERO sign of the virus present in their systems, and now, the society still see them as, the plague?  Yeah, that’s something all right!

It is, WRONG, to discriminate someone, just because they have some sort of a disorder, but that’s, what people are, prone to do, and there’s, nothing being, done about it.

Who Will Guarantee the Work for Women During the Nighttime?

The laws, seemingly set, to protect women, but it’s actually, SEXIST, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Awhile ago, the grand justice interpreted the 807th amendment, announced that the labor laws that restricted women from working during the nighttime goes against the seventh amendment, guaranteeing the gender equality of work, immediately, out-of-effect.

The labor laws mandated, that by principle, the employers should not force women to work nights, but, after the union or the wages committees’ meeting and agreeing, and the conditions of work must match: first, the provisions of safe necessary sanitary needs, second, when no public transportation is available, the company must provide the female workers with a safe way home, or a dormitory for the female workers, and if these two requirements were met, then, the restrictions of women working nights doesn’t need to be followed.

Originally, the labor laws allowed the rights to a certain degree, to the unions, the wages discussion meets, so the unions can deal with the employers, and demanded the employees enforce the protective measures, as a prerequisite for women working nights, it seemed, that this was, giving women, the upper hand, a good, deal.

But most of the justices, in the reasoning, pointe out, that the makeup of the unions, and the number of male and female members in the unions are diverse, that it’s, uncertain, if it can replace the individual’s desires for working nighttime.  Besides, whether or not the female workers are willing to work nights, has more to do with personal wills, or the related means of wages, that it’s not fitted, for the union, or the board to define and decide for all.

And so, this still showed, how there are, the multiple sides of concerns, in whether or not women should be granted the workhours of late in the nights, on the level of safety concerns, the laws should prevent us women from working nights, but from a gender equality angle, it would be, sexist, because, we would then be, banned from working the nights.  Yet, from the angle men and women being treated equals, we should be allowed to work the nights, just like men, and so, this is, not just a gender issue that’s being, debated on, it’s, more, multifaceted.

You’d Discriminately Called Wuhan Pneumonia, They’d Discriminated You for Being Asian

The president, setting a BAD example, leading the “masses”, to DISCRIMINATE, what the current president here is doing, just like how Trump did it, and, now, Biden is trying to, turn this all around, and yet, the president here, is still, CLUELESS as a “leader”…commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The American president, Biden signed an executive memo against the discriminations of Asian Americans during the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, and prohibited the federal government from using “Chinese virus”, along with other words that might cause the people in America to discriminate, to segregate Asian in the country.  Biden’s move had two levels: first, to put out the blazes of Trump’s racist beliefs; two, to mend the fractures in the American society; if the discrimination can’t be done away with, then, the crack simply, can’t be, patched up.

the us and the them…

and you’re not getting into the group, “red”! Found online

Biden’s “Anti-Discrimination” law, although aimed at turning the Trump government’s wayward behaviors; but, the Taiwanese from across the strait can reflect on how the President, Tsai’s mind is, way too, narrowed.  Since the outbreaks started, the government officials kept calling the virus the “Wuhan virus”; before the virus was rightfully name, this would be fine, because it is easier to differentiate.  But, by mid last February, the WHO formally named the virus “MERS”, while the CDC here still didn’t change what it was called, continued calling it the Wuhan virus.  The awareness to prevent the spread by the Department of Health Welfare & Sanitations continually played on, “the Wuhan virus”, and this sort of a discrimination, is sounding off constantly, and daily into our ears, it’d sounded, quite, cacophonous.

The WHO’s renaming, doing away with the location’s names, occupations, animals by 2015, aimed at reducing the discriminations.  While Tsai’s government claimed itself to be forward in thought, advanced, but, toward the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, refusing to use the more neutralized “MERS”, and calling it “Wuhan”, Chen and the central agencies followed suit, for the sake of being “against China”.  Tsai’s government claimed that Taiwan is able, and more than willing to, become a fitting member of the WHO, but it’d, not backed down on the naming of the virus.  The government only chooses the ideals that fitted to its, needs here.

Comparing to Trumps “China Virus” “Wuhan Pneumonia”, and “Kung-Flu”, Chen’s calling it the “Wuhan Virus” constantly, paled by comparison.  And yet, Trump is a narrow-minded, a character-flawed leader, he’d, abused his power; and yet, Taiwan was more than willing, to become is frontrunner, what’s so proud about that?  What’s worse was that Tsai utilized her support in Trump, and used Trump’s claims, to falsify what democracy was; in actuality, those with the minutest political knowledge knew, that Trump had NO sense of what democracy is, and, Tsai’s government, hiding under the shadows of Trump, apparently, she’d, followed, the WRONG leader.

In Taiwan, the issue of race may not be as complicated as in the America, but the race and the issues regarding China is still, too, sensitive, the Chauvinist of Formosa made other groups feel ill-at-ease.  In recent two years, this showed up even more overtly, in Taiwan, Tsai’s discrimination caused the merchants from Taiwan working in China, the spouses from China.  Including how the Taiwanese merchants’ difficulties of returning back to Taiwan during the outbreaks, as well as toward the women married over from China, the “Mings” who were forced to stay in China, it all showed how the president, OPENLY, discriminate the people, to the point of suppression.  Maybe, Tsai believed that she had a justified reason to be against China, without knowing, that she was, feeding to the discriminations against all Asians, and teaching the citizens to hate too.

And so, the president here, just like Trump, didn’t SET a good example, instead of working together, with EVERYBODY onboard, during times of the outbreak, she’d, used her words, to struck up hatred, to get the people here who are still following her, to DISCRIMINATE against CHINA, and yeah, that, is what we are looking at here, another, Donald Trump, in the form of a FEMALE head of “state”…

Staying TRUE, to, a WHORING M-A-N

I still gotta say, this is, still NOT directed toward anyone who can R-E-A-D, as for those of you who’d, stumbled onto this site of mine, and can’t READ, well, you got NO business being here, so, get the HELL out!!!

What AM I???  A @#$%ING (maxed out!) R-E-T-A-R-D???

And, why on God’s “green earth” (oh wait, god does NOT have sole-proprietorship over ANY of us, here on E-A-R-T-H!) would I do something so stupid like that, huh?  Besides, you were the ones who couldn’t keep your god damn, @#$%ING (maxed out!) DICKS in check, so, what RIGHT have you, to tell me that I’m not keeping my you-know-where intact?

The primary reason W-H-Y a lot of women are currently STUCK in this, predicament (you can call it that if you want to!) is because they are, too dumb, and too, BLONDE (the dumb-blonde BIMBOS???), to unable to see, how staying STUCK, should be, their, last resort, and they still, don’t get themselves out, why is that, is absolutely, beyond ME!

Staying true, to, a WHORING M-A-N, that may be our, only option, IF we live in the, 18th, 19th, 20th centuries, but we are, in the 21st CENTURY here (hello, hello, hello, is this thing~~the P.A, even on???), because we are, without a viable skill, to make a living on our own, therefore, in the olden days, we relied on our losers has-beens, to keep us, and seeing how they are all, the bread winners of the house, they can, WHORE around all the want to but that’s, back then, and this, is N-O-W!

Staying true, to, a WHORING M-A-N, is something I will NEVER do, in fact, like all you losers out there that EXTRA “appendage” “down there”, I too, prefer, VIRGIN males too, okay, and yes, I will have my two “virgin males” NEUTERED, and I am going to get the two of them both, HOUSEBROKEN, and, they will be, “camping” their butts, on my bed, next to me, giving that they don’t crawl onto my pillow, to find that soft spot (like Murphy’d done???)…and we’ll all get along, just fine, and dandy here…

From the Inside of Harvard: Asian Students Found to be Discriminated Against

Racism, found in one of the MOST prestigious schools in the U.S., and you still think that there’s NO problem in this world that we’re currently residing in??? Is someone IN DENIAL or what??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Harvard University was accused of discriminating against Asian students, based off of the documents turned in by the S.F.F.A. provided to the courts by the students, the Asian American students’ “personality characters” received a consistent lower marking, and thus, the rate of admittance were, lowered, had it not been so, the number of Asian students in Harvard would be, doubled, and reach forty-three percent.

S.F.F.A. accused Harvard for systematically discriminating against Asian students, that it was, against the civil rights laws. The S.F.F.A. claimed, that in admissions, Harvard used a “balancing of the races” method, causing there to be a lowered number of Asian students getting accepted, and allowing more whites, African Americans, and Latin Americans who aren’t as qualified to get in.

The New York Times reported, that the analyses by the S.F.F.A. showed, that on “positive characteristics”, including personable, courage, friendliness and “gaining a wider spectrum of respect”, the Asian applicants always scored lower than the other students who’d applied.

The Asian students performed exemplary in the areas of academia, tests, and extracurricular activities compared to the other races of students, but because of the Asian students’ “positive characteristics” being lowered, thus, it’d, reduced their chances of getting accepted into the school.

Harvard had denied the allegations on the fifteenth, stated that the analyses conducted by statisticians of the school showed NO such tendencies; during these past few weeks, Harvard had tried to prevent the related reports from leaking out.

And, if this is true, then, it only showed, how RACIST one of the most prestigious university in the U.S. is, and, maybe, the heads of the departments are rationalizing how they’re only, trying to give equal opportunities to ALL the students of ALL the races, but this is racial profiling, and it’s, happening right now, in 2018!

Being Different…

I’m like you all, my classmates, but, not exactly, I have a mom, who’s from a foreign world as opposed to the one I’m currently “staying in”…

When I first entered into class, I spoke the mainstream languages with a perfect tone, absolutely NO weird accents, but, the other kids, they’d still, made fun of me.

not my drawing.

I tried to fit in, tried to engage myself into their discussions, but, every time they saw me approaching, they’d all just, scattered and dissipate, as if, they’re avoiding me, like I’m the plague or something!  And, it’d, hurt.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being different, but, the feedbacks from my external environment seemed to prove otherwise.  I keep on, getting the signals, that I should be thankful, being different from everybody else, and yet, in my day-to-day interactions, that “theory”, it just, can’t seem to work out that well at all!

not my picture.

And now, after being casted away, singled out by my cohort, I’m starting to feel ashamed of my difference, and eventually, I’d become, so scared of being different, that I’d do anything, to blend in with the rest of the crowd………

Unending questions of a girl child

Gender Discrimination, Happening, in the Unnoticed Places…

The First Assertion

As I walk towards my house, I see her tottering behind her mother. She is completely oblivious of her surroundings. Her mother is holding her younger brother in her hand. At times she tries to keep up with the fast pace of her mother and at times of her aunt who is also walking along with them. Although the baby is secure in his mother’s arms, no one is bothered if the girl child is indeed trailing them. Maybe she also knows it. Her speed becomes even more. The poor child deprived of nutrition seems weak. She is making every effort to silently grab the attention of the ladies clattering in front of her.
As we reach a fork road, the family turns towards left and I turn towards right, I am bound to think. Maybe I am making things up. But it is evident in everything everywhere that the…

A Reflection of Inequality

The world right now, it’d shown, a reflection of inequality, as all those police shootings of colored persons get “broadcasted”, causing riots all over the places, what, did we learn, from just standing by, and watching those events, as mere observers?

A reflection of inequality, this, is what the world has entail for us, and, because there are so many varied shades of skin colors, we forget, that we’re all related, sharing this GOD DAMN (and your point being???) planet, and we get caught up, on the differences that we have of one another, and failed to remember, that we’re actually, the SAME.

A reflection of inequality, it’s EVERYWHERE, don’t tell me you don’t see, and, as the next generations of children are born, into this FUCKED (and your point being???) UP world, can we be certain, that, we’re providing them, with a SAFER environment that they will be able to, live in, grow up, be carefree in?

Behind the reflection of inequality, there’s an even MORE pressing issue at hand: why, can’t we tolerate people with a difference of opinion than we?  Why can’t we STOP trying to FIT one another, into those small BOXES of EXPECTATION?  And, don’t ALL of you out there realize, that expectations will only lead to DISAPPOINTMENTS, as I’d already learned, the HARD way already?  And, I’m merely telling you this because?  Oh yeah, I’d wasted TOO much time on figuring things out, and, IF you could take less time, to figure things out for yourselves, wouldn’t you WANT the help too?  I know I would!
