Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #65
Do you consider yourself to be a person with a disability?
- 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.

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.
