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.
