Disability Vengeance

Disability Vengeance

Oh I loved this when I saw it recently:


A twitter post by user Richard Amm that says “First we had Disability Rights, then we had Disability Justice, and now I would like to unveil my own framework: Disability Vengeance.


Unbeknownst to me, I had already started embracing this before I had the words for it. When I was job hunting I was told that because I can now only work from home, I shouldn’t expect anything more than an entry level customer service role. I was furious, of course, so I launched a $6000 consulting package.


Look at me, embracing disability vengeance before I even knew it was a thing. And recently I also wrote about “greed”.


It seems I am wholeheartedly embracing disability vengeance.

    Love this! I’ve found that disability organisations can be the worst for accessibility too. So much in society feels like it has gone backwards.

      Most of them are the *worst*. When I was job hunting earlier this year, I applied for roles at more than one disability organisation and they were the ones who were confused by the concept of hiring someone who needed workplace adjustments due to disability. And I know stories from behind the scenes that are worse but I can’t share as it would jeopardise others employment.

  4. As always you’re one step ahead, educating others and advocating for more accessibility – go you!
