Spot the Ableism
The purpose of this assignment: Recognize ableism in social media and to identify the impact it has on people with disabilities.
The article I chose is titled, “When a Stanger Said It Was ‘Sad’ That My Brother Has Down Syndrome” by Kyle Voltin. In the article, Kyle tells a story about how he is at a local craft fair, selling his apparel line that is geared to properly fit and benefit people with Down Syndrome. It is when he is saying his mission statement to a stranger, that Kyle shows them a picture of his brother, immediately after, the stranger makes the comment, “Oh, that’s so sad”. Kyle then writes to explain how he threw off from the comment and decides to avoid confrontation at the time, which he then regrets later.
As we have learned in our lectures, ableism is, “the false idea that disabled people are by default inferior…”. Therefore, I believe the comment itself from the stranger was an obvious form of ableism because the stranger genuinely believed as though the comment was necessary because it is an ‘unfortunate’ thing to happen to someone. That being said, I don’t think the article as a whole was at all an ableist assumption but rather a reaction to one. Kyle goes on a rant about what he wishes he would’ve said or argued to the stranger. He really emphasizes the idea that we learned in the words matter PowerPoint that it is just another way of “a mind and/or body to be”.
