Blogging Against Disablism Day 2012

Blogging Against Disablism Day, May 1st 2012Welcome to Blogging Against Disablism Day 2012!

Thanks very much to everyone who helped to spread the word and to everyone who blogged against disablism, ableism and disability discrimination.

If you have a post for Blogging Against Disablism, please leave a comment including the URL (web address) of your post and the catergory your post best belongs to.

We'll be updating this post throughout the day to create an archive of all the posts. We'll also try to post links to every blog using the Twitter stream @BADDtweets

The amazing Stephen has helped me this year, but even with two people, there are bound to be typos, so please be patient and let us know if you notice any mistakes.

If you happen to have a round-up post of your favourite blogs from the day, please let us know.  Claire from OT on Wheels put together Archives of tweets for the hashtags #BADD12 / #BADD / #BADD2012  whilst @spiegelmama created a Storify of the day

Hi Goldfish.

Not sure of a category. Other?

BADD 2012: Driven Round The Bend By Motability Myths

Andrea S. said...

I just now put mine up!

My blog site is called "We Can Do" at http://wecando.wordpress.com

My blog post is entitled "Why Fight Disablism? Blogging against Disablism Day 2012" at http://wecando.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/why-fight-disablism/. The closest fit category that you have would seem to be, "General Thoughts on Disablism"

BUT, if you decide to create a category for Disablism in a Global Context (or something similar), then my post could also fit in there because I have loads of links to various reports on the situation of people with disabilities in both developed and developing countries around the world. Up to you, it's your event!

Sean said...

I've put my post up:
Objecting to Walking is Discrimination. This would fit in the "Disability Specific" category as per past years, or "General thoughts on disablism"

Thanks for the great work.

Hi Goldfish,

For your consideration in the Access Issues category :

If you build it, they will come: making co-working spaces accessible

Thanks !

Anonymous said...

My post (2) are probably very very rambling but we have endured discrimination and the like over many years, it took along time to discover that many other injured people are heavily discriminated against seemingly on the pretext of it not being discrimination because its all for their or the greater good.
On the positive side years of heavy and at times very scary discrimination have had very positive effects, we are very poor, in monetary terms but have learned many valuable lessons and while we probably should be a s miserable as Sin for all we have been through are perversely not I guess the lesson is Discrimination of any form, like War achieves nothing for anybody.

Should this go in "The Language of Disablism" or "Impairment-Specific Prejudice"? Whichever you think is best.

I'm not sure if it's education, political, or Other. It's the 1 year update of my ADA fight with portland community college. It's kind of long, but reading it doesn't take as long as living it.

Mine's just general thoughts on living with disability and having to fight for every little bit.

I'm sorry, I forgot to put a category - I suppose it should go under 'education', even though it's a very personal post.

Mine's done! Probably best in employment/politics. Hope you're ok?

Hi there,

I posted on my Tenerife destination blog about BADD, the need for awareness and some of the facilities available for those with reduced mobility travelling to Tenerife.
I guess the best category would be Access Issues but not sure.

My post now live, proposing the concept of complicit disablism and how this applies to web professionals, and arguing that the concept of reasonable adjustment is key to getting people on board.

Hi Goldfish,

My contribution is now live, http://otonwheels.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/badd12-blogging-against-disablism-day/

Not sure of the category- it's about disablism and equality- and about my own privilege and awareness of the wider challenges faced by people in the community.

Hope you can include it.

I've written! http://wp.me/p19r05-23

The title of the piece is "All Too Familiar", and it's about the assumptions our families and carers make about our disabilities and how that can hurt. I'm not sure where it would fit, but hopefully that summary will make it obvious to you where in your categories it should go.

Liam ( @AutistLiam) said...


This probably either general thoughts or personal journey. It includes an amount of biography but is about internalised disablism and what it does to all of us.

Anonymous said...

I wrote one on general ableism (http://thoughts-of-nothing.tumblr.com/post/22192050450/blogging-against-disablism-day) and, by a friend's request, a personal journey (http://thoughts-of-nothing.tumblr.com/post/22195680351/by-request-living-with-chronic-back-pain) about going to university with chronic pain.

This is about travel in specifics but I meant it more as a commentary about disablism and my current apathy so it's probably general unless things can be in two categories.

I'm way late here, but since I've participated in BADD in the past, you may find this post I did "The Path of the Disabled Man" http://www.nickscrusade.org/the-path-of-the-disabled-man/
fitting under the category of sex and relationships

I've never written about gender before. This is an attempt to convey something of the disabled male's lived experience, and I hope it works.
