What Could I Know of Racism?
Weeber, Joy E.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v77 n1 p20-23 Win 1999
The unconscious belief that everyone in society should be "normal" creates the pain of discrimination for those who are disabled. This narrative relates the author's personal experience of growing up disabled and her overcompensation for "Abelism." Learning to embrace the label "disabled" and make new choices provides freedom.
