Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #48

Do you consider yourself to be a person with a disability?

No.

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?

No.

What steps could atheist communities take to become more inclusive?

just saying to stop calling people crazy doesnt help. if we cant use our verbal lexicon as it stands then we need a new one that doesnt insult people incorrectly. there is always teh need to use word that describe something negative about a person but its difficult to come up with words for it when every time you take one somones taking abuse. there has to be a middle groud where people can express themselves while also trying not to offend people too much.
