…more pretty young white girls with invisible disabilities
…more white people writing about disability
…more bi queer women with boyfriends
…more white AFAB nonbinary people
…more people like me.
But: the cool part of writing on the internet is the space is, theoretically, infinite. I am not taking anyone’s paycheck by putting up blog entries. I am not headlining conferences or publishing books or taking up (rare!) paid disability rights work, and if I were that wouldn’t be the worst thing either as long as long as I remember two things: I am not the only person with important things to say; and I’m sometimes not the right person to say them.
There is more than enough space for all of us, and there is always going to be more justice work than we can do. The real work is outside what pays, always.
