Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #66

leave a comment »

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

Depression, severe arthritis, bilateral hearing loss

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?

It’s very difficult for me to hear in large crowds or noisy forums. And I can’t walk like I used to.

What steps could atheist communities take to become more inclusive?

There’s really not a lot they could do except ensure there are escalators and elevators around. And it would be great to provide quiet areas for conversations.

Response #66 from the Ableism in Atheism survey.
