This Tumblr has a moving gif on the front page. Includes image descriptions.

Watching Fury Road, I felt like I was watching my own struggle brought to life (albeit in a very fantastical setting), and I don’t think I ever realized how truly profound that could be for me.

Elsa S. Henry at Her Story Arc: Daredevil and Disability Politics

By throwing away the cane, Murdock (and the writers of the show) make a statement. They make the statement that the cane doesn’t matter, that Murdock’s superpowers make everything better. That there is no consequence, no hardship, that is earned through his sight issues.

Electricity is an Accessibility Issue

from Jan 13 2015

tl;dr Electricity is an accessibility issue. Having an event (and especially a conference) in a venue without reliable electricity excludes people with disabilities whose adaptive equipment requires electrical power.

Unobfuscated: What is accessibility?

Above all else, as accessibility professionals, we should take our actions thoughtfully, recognizing that the actions we take directly impact what people can and cannot achieve on the Web every day.

verity at Tumblr: Writing Trauma and Survival: A Marvel Primer

After several months of reading and writing in Marvel fandom, I decided that I wanted to write a primer on trauma from the perspective of being a trauma survivor and coming from a disability studies background. You might be interested in the stuff in here if you’re writing about Bucky post-CATWS, Sam’s counseling practice, or the experiences of any number of Marvel characters. I’m drawing on a variety of articles, zines, and books, all of which are available to read online or download.

Sam Dylan Finch: If it's not accessible, who it is for?

We’re told it has something to do with budget, but I can’t help but hear it as, “Your voice does not matter enough for us to accommodate you.”
