Just Bust a Myth

Bust a myth!
Bust a myth!

When people ask me what I write about I tell them I’m an advocate for disability rights and I promote inclusive living.  Most people outside Community Living kinda give me a confused look and ask me again, ‘So what do you do?’

The conversation usually deepens to include what inclusive living is.  Like Young MC, I bust a move myth.  I share that to me, inclusion means people making their own choices and living their lives with the same consequences, rights, and freedoms that abled people like myself are privileged to accept as the norm.  Both from a legal and a social perspective.

A fairly common response to this is, ‘Oh, cool!  Except for <insert specific group, type of disability, or perceived/assumed lack of ability here>, right?’

Surprisingly enough, the concept of inclusion regardless of ability is very confusing to many people.  We’re raised in a culture that is unintentionally biased towards enabling and segregating people with disabilities.

No one does this on purpose.  People want to help, they want to keep people safe, and they don’t want to expose vulnerable people to unnecessary risk.  Those are important and worthy goals that we should all aspire to achieve as one human being to another.  All of us get help from people in our lives that help minimize risk.  That’s a good thing!

We all help to end the confusion by working in and promoting Community Living.  I know the readers of this blog do more to promote people living enabled, proactive, and satisfying lives than anyone else out there!   That makes me proud to know you guys.  You’re awesome!

I really liked the blog post Myths and Facts About Inclusion this mom put together about what inclusion means to her.  It’s a great thing to share with people who are curious to know more about inclusive living and why it’s something we’re all passionate about.

If you breath and are human you’re a candidate for inclusion.  Keep busting the myths and revealing the possabilities!  All puns intended 😉

What stories do you share when asked about what you do and why it’s important?  Leave a comment on the blog and share it with me.
