Comment is Free
A very quick blog to let you know that I’ve had an article published by Comment is Free:
The editors inform me that loads of angry comments = a good piece.
Accordingly mine must be the best in all of Christendom because it’s anger ahoy over there!
Still if I’ve achieved one thing today – besides making faceless internet dwellers go postal – it was to bring ‘disablism’ to people’s attention.
Many of the posters on the site accused me of being a loony left winger who had made this term up for the purposes of my article.
The fact that they didn’t know it was an established phrase, much less a reality, is very telling, and underlines exactly why it is so important to have this discussion.
