Post #35: We All Do It: Ableist Prejudice Against Disabled Persons

Blogging against disablism

I just read this interesting post by David, a young man with cerebral palsy who writes a blog that shares stories of disabled people in America. He actually took a year off college to interview and write stories and he has a lot of meaningful posts. Today I’m sharing his thoughts and examples on how we, in our everyday lives without meaning to, project an abelist attitude that is discriminatory against people living with disabilities.

We All Do It

*New readers may wonder why I’m sharing these posts and why they’re numbered. Here’s a link to my post I’m Giving Up HATE, PREJUDICE and INDIFFERENCE for Lent.

And here are my latest 5 posts in the series:
Post #30: Intersectionality
Post #31: Almost Asian (But Not Quite)
Post #32: Accurate Representation
Post #33: 13 Tweets That Define What Growing Up as Lesbian Was Really Like
Post #34: Growing Up Black and Jewish in America

*Please remember to leave the sites I post clean. We are here to learn, not debate. Even if you disagree, we need to learn that just because we have an opinion, doesn’t mean we need to share it all the time.*
