serene: liberty-justice is my femslash (liberty justice)

There's some really wonderful stuff being posted now (and recently) about the stigmatizing language based on disability and gender that people (English-speaking people, that is, unless I've missed some discussion of other languages) often use in everyday speech.

(This is nowhere NEAR an exhaustive list. It's just the tabs I have open right now; I closed a few before I thought to make this post.)

[personal profile] bcholmes talks about how she felt when [personal profile] vito_excalibur used the word "tranny" in a panel, and Vito responds (note that there are lots more comments at their LJs, same handles)

[livejournal.com profile] sasha_feather talks about the Rethinking Disability Metaphors panel at Wiscon; so does [livejournal.com profile] sophy.

[personal profile] vito_excalibur talks some more (again, even more conversation at the LJ equivalent of the post) about ablist language and lots of people make smart points

My friends and friends-of-friends are such smart, thoughtful, loving, awesome people! I love it.
