Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #3
Do you consider yourself to be a person with a disability?
Have you (or do you personally know someone who has) felt out-of-place or limited your involvement with an atheist community because of disability-related situations?
What steps could atheist communities take to become more inclusive?
Make more educational videos, because I think a lot of people would rather watch a video than read a blog or article. If there’s entertainment in it for them, they will be more receptive to the message.
Any other thoughts about ableism and atheism?
I have actually found that atheist/secular communities are far more inclusive to people with mental illnesses than religious communities, although I can’t really speak for how atheist/secular groups treat individuals with other disabilities, as my disabilities are “invisible.”
