Ableism in Atheism #62

leave a comment »

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?

Lessening of the usage of the word “retarded”. It’s crept into common vernacular, not because they think people with mental retardation are without value, but just because it’s something they’ve grown up with.

Response #62 from the Ableism in Atheism survey.
