Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.
This photo is giving me LIFE
That’s twice today I’ve seen this photo so it seems like a good idea to mention that this is my friend Elsa and she runs a blog that talks about feminism and disability, particularly as it pertains to critiquing pop culture and gaming.
She’s a huge nerd and a cool lady. Her site is http://feministsonar.com/
