Myra Abedi Disability and the Law Sept 14 2017 ReadingsCourse Starting off 1) What did you learn from these readings? Inclusion vs. exclusion Unintentional exclusion: what accommodations can we make for everyone that is universal When creating a city, you dont necessarily think about blind individuals, instead we think about the norm (people with 2020 vision, young, mobile) Point about context: what is normal and what is abnormal The norm tends to be something that you can see Critical disability theory They specified how we usually say people have disabilities, but we should refer to them as people first before we refer to them as something else Disability is an adjective like brunette or blonde. It comes with a lot of assumptions and stereotypes The way youre introduced, the way society sees you, the way youre looked at The CDT reading is about reconceptualising something. They say it in their own words The 2 article, the author talks about her issues with dealing with disability through being selfconscious, scared etc. If no body believes that you have a disability, how are you going to live in the society without feeling selfconscious The feminist perspective is about adding social context to the ways that we as individuals suffer amongst each other One of other presumptions that feminist theory has made in the past is that good health is a standard and lack of reflection of what good health is Are you disadvantaged because of the standard of health? Over time we all go through a disability as we get older, yet its still not normalized Senior citizenship (Aging) is considered a disability
