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.
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.
