Feministing and Disability linkspam

Most of these links are via [personal profile] trouble, I'm reposting and linkspamming to signal boost. Please spread the word!

I'm going to post links to this comm as things develop on Feministing as a result of Meloukhia's Open Letter to Feministing, calling them out for ableist language issues in their posts and comment moderation. Meloukhia has been updating that post, so it's a good one to check back in with frequently.

[personal profile] trouble has collected relevant links here. She has written to Feministing about their ableism several times before and not gotten any responses.

There's a thread at feministing to discuss this, please beware comments.

Please, if you see a post that you think should be added to the next linkspam, drop me a comment or PM. ALSO, if you would like to join in the linkspamming effort, please know this comm allows members to post--all you have to do is join! If you are not a member of Dreamwidth and would like to have an account here, PM me your email address--I have several invite codes I'd be happy to give out.

Likewise. :) And I have something else I want to say but will be a derail so I'll message you privately.
