Disability rights are human rights! ♿♾️
This season seems to be like we're doing a lot like of backtracking. To keep with the spirit of that, we use this episode to unpack the term "disability." From the legal importance to the lived experience, we try (our best) to work our way towards a more inclusive understanding of disability.
Mindset is important because it can help you find both clarity and focus. It's one thing to be angry and just complain, but it's another thing to learn, grow, and advocate for change.
As a way to empathize with others, we compare ourselves to them. When people use this approach to relate with disabled people, there's a chance that they downplay the reality of our limitations. We're often told to "Try Harder" and, if we don't succeed, that's used as evidence that our failings are our own faults.
Lots of stereotypes surround disability, but the "supercrip" trope is all over movies, shows, novels, comic books, etc. Kyle and Luis explore this stereotype and how it impacts their lives, and the lives of all disabled people.
From GI issues to ADHD to Generalized Anxiety Disorder to Autism, we unpack invisible disabilities. We talk about those who think invisible disabilities don't exist, and how they believe that people with these diagnoses are either "faking" or "exaggerating" their limitations.
