Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #65

leave a comment »

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

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Chronic pelvic pain (from endometriosis, fibroids, and ovarian cysts)
  • Partial vision loss in one eye (presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome)

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?


Any other thoughts about ableism and atheism?

As a crazy person, I’d hate to see this become the sort of place that’s all about piling onto anyone who, say, says something is “crazy.” So I say no to the anti-“ableist” comment policy.

Response #65 from the Ableism in Atheism survey.

Note: I don’t agree that one person’s lack of harm should override another person’s harm, but I thank this person for sharing hir thoughts.
