No I don't know your friend in a wheelchair

 
No I don't know your friend in a wheelchair and frankly am not interested in some random person in a wheelchair. Not everyone with disabilities knows everyone else. I don't really care that you know s...

Special equality is absolute nonsense

 
Special equality doesn't exist; if people with disabilities are special then by definition they can't be equal. It's no wonder I am a narsissistic lunatic if they keep calling me special. I think that...

People are outraged over the book and movie "Me Not You", how dare people create things we don't like! The story is about a person acquiring a disability and killing himself because of it. Personally ...

Being Famous

 
I love talking about being famous even particularly because hardly anybody knows who I am. Probably ten thousand people. This still gives me enough experience. I now fully understand why celebriti...

If you think I'm stupid, you're stupid

 
More accurately people who think that those in wheelchairs are stupid can be better described as ignorant. They have a lack of education about people with disabilities and incorrectly associate physic...

Humans label everything

 
I talk about political correctness and labels quite often. Outside of media I believe that talking about labels is a waste of time. Another point has occurred to me... Humans label everything: Men,...

Conservatism in disability advocacy

 
You would think that people that have disabilities are natural progressives considering conservatives are the most likely to deny them aid. It turns out not so much. This makes sense as people who hav...

Speak for yourself

 
It does seem like the more that I learn about disability advocacy, the more I dislike it. I was going to switch this blog into complaining about people patronizing me, but then I found another thing I...

Us against them is not helpful

 
One thing that I am constantly bothered by is the "us against them" mentality and even the word "ableist". Five years ago I didn't know what the word meant, and I wish that I kept ...

Authentic leadership

 
Now I am not one to hate on able body people; quite the opposite. I think the us against them mentality that some in the disability community have is highly disruptive and frankly just annoying. This ...

Here's what I think of disability competitions; I think they're stupid. I know, such bluntness is shocking coming from me. I am not talking about disability sports, I am talking about qualifying disab...

Stop wasting time with political correctness

Problems with an eye gaze wheelchair

Nonsense sex theories

 
I read a ridiculous article recently saying that people aren't having sex with cripples because there just isn't enough disabled porn. Let me debunk this theory. First there is already disabled por...
