Yesterday was the 2012 Blogging against Disablism Day.
I contributed my post, along with many other people who have disabilities, and I have to say that reading the blogs was a profound experience for me.
My emotional reactions to the stories described ranged from a collegiate feeling of familiarity with the experiences described, to outright rage at some of the experiences (that we just don’t hear about through the mainstream media), to pride to be part of this emerging activist population of people with disabilities working together to combat disablism.
Goldfish posted this great video, outlining the rationale behind the expression of Disability Pride.
