Though i don’t suppose it matters that so many disabled folks have been saying this for, like, ever, because so many of us who do have some sort of internet access can have a means of connecting with communities –via facebook and so on, or who can use a cellphone to get ourselves out of dangerous or mundane situations via cell access –when our supposed home communities are utterly inaccessible to us. Because while there’s all this concern about losing touch with our “humanity” or something via these technologies, few are doing the work to actually make in-person connection more possible by making it accessible to us.

Who’s the fucking robot now?
