Here’s Kaz, on “Disabled Sexuality and Disempowerment Through Fetishization“:

This made me laugh. My scoliosis is very minor, but I have three fingers on one hand; when somebody asks if I’ve noticed, I say innocently, “What, there’s something wrong with my hands?” and lift them up so I can glance at them, ‘notice’ the deformed hand, and shriek in horror. (Read the rest.)

sanabituranima, on “Guest Post: Cerebral Palsy Humor? Not so much.

“all I want for Christmas is a cure.”

romham, on “Ableist Word Profile: Wheelchair Bound

Kaitlyn,on “Guest Post: To Whom It May Concern“:

One of these comments caused me to laugh so hard I aspirated some pudding.

It’s ok, though. It was good pudding.

  1. I have to say, we have great commenters on this site. I always read the comments just as much as the posts, because I learn something new from one of the commenters every time. Plus, there are those hysterical sentences slipped in! 🙂

  2. Those comments are brilliant.
