“Special needs”... 6 times in under 60 seconds

“Take this burden off of the communities”...
I heard this last night.

My pain level was so high, I was wishing I had *safe* access to an emergency room where I wouldn’t be labeled as “drug-seeking” & discharged in worse condition. But I don’t, because chronic pain patients aren’t treated with respect or dignity.
So instead, I tried to watch the debate, as a distraction, in between pain so intense it was making me vomit and doing breathing exercises so I wouldn’t pass out.

I couldn’t watch the debate. The moving background made it inaccessible.

El Movimiento de la Neurodiversidad es una rama del movimiento de derechos en discapacidad (Disability Rights Movement). Creo que separarnos de un movimiento tan importante porque nos quita mucho más de lo que supuestamente nos quita un "dis".
Diferentes somos todos, cada persona funciona diferente a la de al lado. Considero la diversidad una propiedad de los conjuntos y no de los individuos. Diversidad funcional a mí cognitivamente no me dice nada, no me describe y, en mi contexto, me puede restar acceso, apoyos.
No logro evitar ver capacitismo interiorizado y hasta supremacismo en las personas autistas que rechazan la discapacidad, en particular entre aquellas que sí ven otras personas y condiciones como discapacitadas. Yo no necesito ser arreglado como esas "otras personas"

It's the incomparable @CJ_the_Actor!! 🙌 #UnitedShades #DeafTalent
My mom is scrambling to find her glasses right now so she can watch #UnitedShades...HILARIOUS
The disability community is not a monolith. There are worlds within worlds each w/ unique identities, languages, practices, and cultures.

We are part of every community.

There's no way to cover everything in a single episode of tv but it’s a start. #UnitedShades

I never write threads. And so I hope my disabled friends and my supporters will take a moment to read this, as I am beginning to fall apart over things that keep happening. Advice and retweets would be much supported.
It started a year ago when @cooperhewitt asked me to consult on their Access + Ability exhibit. I jumped in without pause, as Disability Design is my passion.
In an early email I sought to "find incredible ways to incorporate the disability community, perhaps even create something the disability community can feel like they had a voice in."
