I love pirates because they have no concept on ableism. oh you have no leg? here have a peg leg. no hand?? well guess we gotta put a hook on that, give those sons of bitches a surprise. Blind in one eye, put an eyepatch on no one fucking cares, youre deaf??? go man the canons you glorious bastard.They dont care if youre disabled bcus as long as you can fuck shit up they literally dont fucking care.
I never thought about it this way. This is beautiful.
Tiny history lesson: the eyepatch wasn’t put over an injured eye, but over a healthy one. If they were up on the deck in the bright sun, the eye with a patch on it stayed adjusted to the dark, so when they went below deck they could take the patch off and immediately see well.
