Paternalism is Passe’-Read Claiming Crip

The ADA Legacy Project (www.facebook.com/ADALegacy)pointed out this blog post called “Claiming Crip” and it is well worth a few moments of your time. The “pat a crip on the head” actions of the unenlightened non-disabled affect people all across disability nation.Regardless of the whether we are phys dis, cognitive, emotional or combination disabilities, pretty much every person with a disability over the age of 3 is sick of the pity approach. Take a moment, enjoy the read, spread the word. NO MORE PITY OR PATS ON THE HEAD
