Squawk about disability and society
I want one!
Vacation? Or a cockatoo?
I just checked, and I'm right where I thought I was. Whew!:)
Sorry to be off-topic -- I was wondering if you might want to blog about this:Jerry Lewis, the man who runs the annual Telethon to raise money for people with muscular dystrophy in the US is about to receive a humanitarian award. Many people in the disability community is protesting this award because they feel that Jerry perpetuates and entrenches negative, harmful stereotypes toward people with disabilities. More about the petition campaign at: http://www.petitiononline.com/jlno2009/petition.htmlThere is also a Facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=40538392681
Oh hey, Aspeger Square 8! I hope you read Alex and me by Irene Pepperberg. If you like African Grey Parrots (and who doesn't?) You'll go out of your mind with bliss.
It really bugs me when people pretend that a pet has written something when it's really the person writing on their behalf without really knowing their perspective. It feels like you're stealing their voice. Some parents of disabled kids do the same thing, and it really bothers me.
It's interesting. I thought similarly.
