Blogging Against Disablism Day
The Goldfish has come up with a brilliant idea and has declared a Blogging Against Disablism Day for 1st May. It will be fantastic if you could all join in and make it as successfully as the recent Blogging Against Sexism Day.
It is so important to tackle this subject. As disabled people, we are still subjected to negative attitudes and keep being treated to various versions of the Medical Model of Disability. Together we can use the internet, be it by blogging, or various messageboards, to express ourselves. Disablism is very much alive in this country. It may not be purposeful and may just be because of a lack of awareness, but this doesn't alter the fact that it is there. If we want to tackle it then we should take the responsiblity, via campaigns such as this, to educate and raise awarness.
Please take this oportunity to sign up via The Diary Of A Goldfish blog page at the above link.
Thank you very much.
