One of my transplant friends had this article posted to her social media page.
I actually really like it & think it makes so much sense. It also explains the damage that ableism does in really succinct & practical ways.
It’s by no means a complete list, but certainly is a relatable one.
I try extremely hard to stay apolitical in my blog.
I don’t like discussing politics here. It’s not the place for it.
I only bring these things up in context of voting or platform stances that might make my disabilities easier or harder to live with or things I encounter in life (like ableism) that are a drain to go through.
I say that here because for me this article wasn’t about politics or who is right or wrong. It’s about calling attention to issues that many of my friends & even some family members face on a daily basis, especially when we are disabled.
So regardless of how someone feels about social justice from a political viewpoint, it’s still worth a read putting that aside.
