You get to decide if that applies to you; if you're unsure or questioning, your contributions are welcome. This thread is for everyone to read, but mostly for disabled people to participate in.

Disability/ableism thread: access intimacy, taking care of each other

Like previous MeTas, this thread is a space for people affected by ableism to converse, about experiences on and off the site. We're trying to make this a space relatively free of pressure from people who AREN'T hurt by ableism. You get to decide whether ableism affects you. This thread is for everyone to read and for disabled people to (mostly) participate in. [more inside]

Words that are not okay for minorities.

I object to the multiple uses of 'whackadoodle' to describe the mental illness of a young man (who yes, killed half a dozen people) in this thread. [more inside]

Mental illnesses as adjectives? Perhaps not?

I hate to call out such an otherwise amazingly written post (full, I hasten to add, of links I am looking forward to listening to), but I have some concerns. [more inside]

Recommending involuntary commitment is going too far here

I ibeg people to think twice, then think again, then think a fourth time before suggesting that an AskMe questioner get someone involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. [more inside]
