  • Disability is nothing to push people away because of it is a thing that brings people together into a community
  • Fenty and the activism with them having a “little person” ambassador
    • This was a really big thing to see more of the everyday people and less of the unrealistic person
  • Unrealistic expectations of nobody wants disabilities and they are curable is such a toxic mindset
    • “The goal is to conform to be normal” not having an uniqueness 
    • Normalizing the “cure” of disabilities to be “normal”
  • Feminism is treated as a disability and so is race 
  • Being blind is not the end all be all of disabilities but rather being in a society that isn’t accommodating is one of the hardest parts of being blind or deaf
