part of me is glad that it took me this long to overcome internalized ableism and actually ID as disabled…
since paying somewhat more attention to the sort of stuff that comes from prominent disabled activists
my consistent thought is: fuck. all of this is SOOO WHITE.
it is like when i first encountered trans theory/discourse/stuff
all the ~big names~ and ~people u must listen to~
are white. white. mayo. white.
anyway. i’m just fucking happy that most of the disabled ppl i know and listen to are poc.
bc white activism is literally as boring and bland as white faces/food/culture/etc.
