I came across this quote by William Sloan Coffin that nails the problem with many overly sentimental disability advocacy efforts. 

"To show compassion for an individual without showing concern for the structures of society that make him an object of compassion is to be sentimental rather than loving." (William Sloan Coffin)

Why I do the work that I do...

"I was escorted out of a church service yesterday with my 9-year old autistic son.

Despite the fact I had heard of this sort of thing happening on the news more than once, I never expected it to happen to me.

You see, I’ve never been asked to leave anywhere with Max.  Not restaurants, not movie theaters, or shopping malls or grocery stores or any other place I can think of."
