Interesting food for thought. What term is acceptable to you?

Interrupting my pandemic-teacher-tired hiatus on this International Day of Disabled Persons to remind you that
.
disability is part of one’s identity,
.
using euphemisms to refer to disability diminishes the ways disabled folx are discriminated against and the accessibility they have to continuously fight for,
.
your discomfort with the terms “disability” or “disabled” are irrelevant if you are nondisabled,
.
there is no such thing as “more disabled” or “less disabled”–you’re either disabled or you’re not,
.
disabled people are not perpetual children nor do they have a “developmental age,”
.
and disabled folx deserve a seat at every table and a voice in every conversation.
.
.
.
That’s all ✌🏻😘♿ #ProudlyDisabled

Pic ID: Black text on a watercolor rainbow gradient background. The words “special needs,” “handicapable,” “differently-abled,” “exceptionally,” and “diffability” are all written and crossed out. In larger text at the bottom is the world “disabled.” The Neurodivergent Teacher’s logo is at the bottom.
