Models of Disability

I spent the weekend enjoying the warm weather and the swimming pool and otherwise lazing around, and I don't have a Monday morning post. So I just thought I'd pass along this excellent disability rights link for my readers to enjoy:


Does anybody else think Charity Barbie looks kind of like Alison Tepper Singer?



  • Oh, man, before I saw the post, I presumed that by "Charity Barbie" you meant Jenny McCarthy.

  • LOL, no, but the Barbie sitting to the left of the charity crowd with a vacant stare on her face does indeed remind me of Jenny, now that you mention it.

  • She doesn't "kind of look like Alison Tepper Singer", she's a dead ringer :-)

  • What a path of lies that social model of disability. So reminiscent of the contemporary tendency to blame one's own problems on society, regardless of who in society is causing the problems, or whether society is responsible or not. Interesting how suddenly impairments become fake or illusory when someone considers disability to be society's fault, and that things would be fine with "accommodations".

  • Slightly off topic but utterly unbelievable.

    CityNews: CityNews Exclusive: The Mother, The Child, The School Board And The Psychic

    This happened in Canada so I do not know if the mother can sue through the courts there.

    Get to the part where the mother outfitted her daughter with GPS and a monitoring system and this is what saved her from the allegations of the psychic.

    I think the school needs to be held accountable for this.

  • I thought the image of Allison Tipper Singer was scary because of what Autism Speaks represents and the image of Barbie is scary to me....just because.

    Now I have an image in my head of what the combination might look like and that's REAL scary. thanks :/
