Don’t “Dis” Us (Reblog)

Disability is a complex story that must be told through multiple voices. From time to time I will feature another disability insider’s words on this blog to offer a new perspective.

Today, I am sharing a blog post by Qudsiya Naqui. Qudsiya Naqui is a lawyer based in Washington DC, focusing on immigration law and policy. She is also author of the blog otherwiseenabled, where she explores and challenges the concept of “disability.” In this post, she explores how language can unintentionally divide us rather than unifying us. Her words underscore the Disability Wisdom idea that disability rights (and immigrant rights, and gender and race equality) are human rights.
