Annoyed thread: A person named Kris Lint, who has left a whopping 327 comments on the SyFy channel’s website, decided to write an extended comment on my interview on #disability & scifi about how he can’t think of one #disabled person who knows who wouldn’t “jump for a cure.”
Kris says disabilities aren’t things people want, just things people are forced to overcome. Kris says no parent wants a disabled child.
Kris then proceeded to say I’m ignorant for thinking tech should aim to create a more #accessible world rather than focus exclusively on cure. If anyone out there knows Kris Lint, leading commenter on the SyFy channel website, please tell them to kindly fuck all of the way off.

Wow, that last #thread really took off. Let’s try another. I want to think with folks about how we can talk about #SurvivingRKelly outside the logic of the prison industrial complex.
Many of the people who responded to my last thread engaged in carceral logics saying some variation on “his ass should rot in jail” if not calls for his death. Are there other ways we can imagine justice, accountability and healing?
Prison abolitionist Mariame Kaba has said, as ppl raised w/ carceral logics it’s hard for us to imagine or desire alternatives. The #prisonindustrialcomplex has limited how we think about justice—even though other nations do things differently.
