-an ABC news report I just heard on a program that teaches VI kids how to surf
Let’s just all throw the word special out the window, shall we?
Agreed. We all want to be average people, and I use the word “average” because “normal” pisses me off just as much as “special” does.
the fact that this is “news” just based on the fact that these kids are visually impaired shows either exploitation or ableism, or maybe both. I haven’t quite decided yet, i’m still fighting through the urge to punch somebody in the face.
