this ain't livin': Be Inspired By What People Do, Now By Aspects of Their Identity

Being disabled, like being nondisabled, is nothing special. It’s a fact of life. Some people have impairments and other people do not. What people choose to do with their lives varies widely depending on who they are, and we should be focusing on what people are actually doing, which values they embody, how they carry themselves, rather than on an aspect of their identities which comprises only one part of their humanity. Disabled people aren’t inspiring simply because they have impairments, but disabled people who do amazing things most certainly can be inspiring because of what they’re doing.
