11 November, 2009

Some of my favorite subjects are double standards, rhetorical tricks, unacknowledged power dynamics, and the tendency to confuse how people look with how well they can take care of themselves. Every so often I make a directory and try to group all my posts by theme, but because a lot of the themes are interconnected I never do an especially good job. Plus I’ve sort of started calling different things by different words, because I’ve been writing the blog for a long time.


Staff infection, Supercrippery and other complexes, Crushing people, Feelings are not real, Tilting at strawmen, Not able to tilt at strawmen anymore because I’m too pissed off, Inter-disability ableism, Like a Person, The bases of what I’m trying to say, About being read, being misread, reading, passing, and covering, About fandom/literature/pop culture, Reviews (mostly disability-related), Skins, Chicago Style is Oppressing Me, Self-narrating zoo exhibit, Language and labels, Gender expression/presentation with ASD, Intersectionality and Oppression Olympics, Miscellaneous
