    “Virginia considers being disabled akin to being a specific race. Or maybe, being a specific race is the equivalent of being disabled?” What? No. These are seperate issues of bigotry I’m pretty sure that no comparison was necessary. Please don’t conflate the two in future. They weren’t trying to say that one was like the [...]

  • I am commenting on this story . As a disabled woman I have been interested in the intersections of sexuality and disability for a long time. There are so many barriers beyond the physical when disabled people want to express themselves sexually. One of the biggest barriers is that it is still widely believed that disabled people are [...]

    When you post these clips could you please also mention the show’s air date so those of us outside of the US (who can’t see the clips) can find them on local sites?

    If you would read my responses to other comments you would find that I have clarified my position. I am not attempting to say that a disabled fetus has more rights than the woman carrying it. I bring up the push for euthenasia as a way to illustrate how devalued disabled people are. The reality [...]

    Perhaps I did not make myself clear, I am not saying someone with a disabled fetus must carry it to term especially if it risks the mother’s health or the likelyhood of the child surviving are low. I am speaking to the fact that disabled people in modern society are devalued and I don’t think [...]

    I agree, I would never argue that Poland should completely cut off rights to abortion but rather legalize it so that the problem of using disability as a talking point for abortion can be addressed rather than saying disability is bad reason to allow abortion so it should just be illegal. I applaud the international [...]

  • I must preface this post with the statement that I am staunchly pro-choice but I must admit that there are certain aspects of the pro-choice movement that make me very uneasy. Today there was a post on the main page discussing how Poland had been chastised for refusing genetic testing to a woman whose fetus [...]

    Dear Steven Moffat, I will begin this letter by assuring you that I am a diehard Doctor Who fan. I really do love the show. I especially love how the show can be used to make relevant social commentary in the middle of deep space hijinks. However since you have taken the helm of Doctor [...]

    I realize I am a bit late to this debate but the furor surrounding it fascinates me. I’ll start with a little background. A number of people have posted about Sarah Palin’s involvement with The Susan B. Anthony List SBAL) which is a conservative women’s group which seeks to fund anti-choice women politician’s in there [...]
