Before we get into this week’s linkspam–I have a separate post with many links pertaining to This Week in Racist Bullshit. It’s important that we, as a community, make it clear that this is not acceptable behavior.

    It’s so true about not finishing articles. I’m always after my students to get to the end of things, but more and more I find myself reading the first couple of paragraphs and then moving on. Oh internets, why you change our brains?

    I’m… conflicted about the revamped wheelchair symbol, and really don’t want to call it an improvement. Not only does the current one look more like I do in my chair than the redesigned one, I’m wary of any exercise that equates agency with physical ability and passivity with physical disability. Not all wheelchair users have the ability to move their arms like that, and those who can’t aren’t passively drifting through life devoid of agency.

      @Ridley: You know, I hadn’t thought about from that perspective before. Thank you. What I like about it is that for me it’s more about the person than the chair. But now that you’ve pointed it out, I can see how it could be interpreted differently.
