I’m working on the final two chapters of Unfit Parent, and boy oh boy they are hard to write. I don’t know yet how the chapters will be organized, but I know that I’m looking at the medical side of disabled parenting and, in that, exploring disabled forced sterilization, eugenics, ableism, abortion, medical trauma, and self-determination. Breezy breezy.
I can't wait to read your book! I so deeply appreciate chewing on your thoughts and tracing your intellectual developments. Please keep going. Please keep telling the truth. You're making those around you smarter, more aware, and more thoughtful.
Oh, my goodness, this: "There is no view from nowhere, and learning about another person’s somewhere will save our lives." hit me. Hard. Learning about another person's somewhere - what a beautiful way of reminding us that we never, ever know what someone else's life is like, what their reality is, what thoughts and beliefs flit through their minds. Thank you for this - and for writing.
"It’s important to remember that the people we assume are objective are, in fact, just the people who traditionally have had influence." This keeps haunting me. Thank you. And I can't wait to read Unfit Parent!
So moving and well said. I look forward to your book(s)! To what are you pointing in the picture of your doggie eating a stick? Thank you for the pictures, by the way!
Inspiring, powerful, enlightening, thank you so much for sharing these words - and I absolutely cannot wait to read your book. ✌️✊💚
