jesse_the_k: those words in red on white sign (be aware of invisibility)
[personal profile] jesse_the_k
Keidra Chaney has posted a most excellent essay on her process of coming to terms with progressive vision loss. You may know her as part of The Learned Fangirl. She addresses the barriers fandom erects as well as her own shame and confusion.

But I didn’t anticipate how much my vision disorder would eventually affect my own view of myself, my work, and my life in fandom.

In pop culture, disability is a trope, especially visual impairment.
