Disabled by Chance, Proud by Choice


Disabled and Proud in blue, by chance and by choice in black italic. Simple, but true. Thanks to my friend Anthony Tusler for sharing this. (Better pic, soon) Available in mini-button.




Many people don’t understand the concept of being proud and disabled. It is not about being proud of your disability, it is about being proud of who you are and the accomplishments of others with disabilities throughout history. It is accepting and honoring our uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. Pride comes from celebrating our own heritage, culture, unique experiences and contributions. You can read the politics of naming by Sarah Triano to get a bigger picture: http://ussfaccess.wordpress.com/the-politics-of-naming/  or this description by the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition (MDRC) (http://mymdrc.org/proud-and-powerful.html)
