This is a blog post about why I burned my book and other essays on disability, and the reasons why people should read it. It will be of interest to anyone who has an interest in disability, or just wants to learn more about what life is like for disabled people.

This post is also for the people who wonder why anyone would want to burn their book. Sometimes, even books can be too much and need a good burning. It’s time that we start recognizing disability rights as human rights instead of always treating them as special or separate needs. Disabled people deserve the same opportunities in society as everyone else does!

After reading this blog post, you’ll understand more about me and what it was like living with other disabilities: cerebral palsy, hearing loss and vision impairment from retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). I hope after reading this you may find some inspiration in my writings on disability activism and advocacy – no matter how grim life looks sometimes there are still things worth fighting for. And I hope you’ll find a bit of me in those words too.

ut as a personal attack against me, but I want to use it as an opportunity not only to share how wrong they were about the content of this particular essay, but also because there is so much more that needs to be talked about in regards to disabilities and activism. What are we doing when we oppose someone’s right for self expression? Why do people see disabled activists differently than others? Are there any generalizations or misconceptions that you have seen commonly made by society towards disabled individuals with disabilities who speak out passionately about their own rights – perhaps even used controversial language at times? In what ways does social media complicate these dynamics between disabled activists and those who oppose them?

Now, I am not saying that all people who disagree with a disabled person’s words are automatically bigots or something like that. However, there is no denying the fact that some of these views stem from an underlying bias – one which needs to be addressed head on and in order for any kind of progress to happen.

The bottom line here is this: If you feel passionately about your cause, then speak out without fear! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by being open about your own identity and using language that speaks directly to the issues at hand. And if somebody doesn’t want what you’re selling because it offends their sensibilities too much, well then they don’t deserve access anyway.
