CN: assisted suicide

FYI, we have another #MeBeforeYou ableist clusterfuck coming up:

👀 “Susan Sarandon has voiced her support for assisted dying after taking on the role of a terminally ill woman.”

“In the film, Lily suffers from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), which is a progressive degeneration of the nerve cells that control muscle movements. Around 80% of those diagnosed with it die within two to five years.”
“But despite her sympathy for those who choose to end their lives in such a position, Sarandon said it's not a choice she would make if she was terminally ill herself.”

I’ve been following the discussion of disability #RepresentationMatters for a while, and I have thoughts. So many thoughts. I wrote this thread out in advance to get them all in one place, and it ended up being super long, so be forewarned. A few stipulations:
First, I’m not going to use the term #cripface (but once). Just searching on here brought up enough concerns from disabled Black people to make me wary. And I already think the experience of being Black and being disabled are different in important ways.
‘Disability drag’ is also problematic. Disability mimicry is... fine. But 18 characters? We can do better. Some options: Disablry. Disablie. Criptic. I kind of like n. ‘crippicry’ = cripple + mimicry. adj. ‘crippic’. An actor who takes crippic roles can be a ‘crippocrite’.

Updating Twitter disability hashtag thread.

@AllisonR has educated me that I should use Sentence Case for #Accessibility. Graphic reads: # symbol followed by the word Hashtag in white lettering on a blue background.
I have #brainfog so I know I missed someone. Please add your favorite resources as a reply.

As we fight for access in casting for disabled actors, we must remember this.

True inclusion in Hollywood starts in the writers room. it starts with scripts, directors, and the story.

THREAD.

#FilmDis
We could cast all the disabled actors we wanted, but if we don't have disabled writers to tell authentic stories of what it's like to be disabled, we are never going to get disabled stories right.
Disabled writers understand how to include the subtle nuances of being disabled, something nondisabled writers never include because they don't understand what those are. No amount of research can ever replace lived experience.
