So I missed apparently a new discussion on ableism at VVC. I saw the original discussions about the wording of the original policy and the public apology immediately after and the start of revisions, but was there something specifically in the last couple of days that happened that is leading to more discussion after that? As I'll be really honest; I stopped reading my flist days ago when I realized that yeah, this entire surgery thing was becoming real.
Due to the fact I don't have disabilities that need accommodating--ADHD doesn't count, and the occasional outbreak of claustrophobia during occasional vid shows is thankfully rare and usually just requires walking it off outside--I'm just mostly engaged in reading catch-up to see what's happening.
On that note: *hugs* to amireal, milly, and fan_eunice. I'm not sure what else to say; I'm so sorry for what you are going through right now, and I wish I could do something to help. I'm online tonight. I'm pretty sure the joy of my textual presence is not what anyone sane would call consolation, but if you need to talk, or you know, rant! I am here for you.
