First and foremost, how do you define disability?
Defining disability is a complex task, and I like that. Capitalism and the medical model would like to think they’ve got a good definition: someone who’s broken, who’s not as productive or valuable as a “normal” or “typical” person and therefore needs fixing (or pity and charity!). I kind of reject that. They’re not really worthwhile ways to look at something that many people see as a meaningful part of their identity.
