Episode 094 - “Elisa and The Fishman” - A Review of “The Shape of Water”

July 13, 2018

In this episode, I review 2018's Best Picture Winner "The Shape of Water". I talk a lot about the ableism in the film, and how the central character (played by a non-disabled actress... ugh) shouldn't necessarily fall in love with a fish man.  I share some of my many issues with the film, as well as a few things I could relate to in love that I saw in this. I also share some reviews from disabled people who highlight just how ableist this romance between a deaf woman and a fish man actually is.

This episode is all about my feelings about Pride when you are disabled.  I share some of my experiences in Prides in 2018, and my issues with the organizational exclusion of disability by Pride orgs.  I focus in on Pride Toronto and how we can do better.    I also talk about some super ableist incidents that happened to disabled people during pride including Stonewall and Flaming Saddles Weho in LA.   I also coin the term "bahcumbug" in this episode.

Wow, it's our 20th disaftdark minisode!  In this minisode, I get an e-mail from Jessica, who tells us all about their experiencing dating with a disability; whether they are gay or straight, and their comfortability in simply being alone and feeling complete.  It was an awesomely long e-mail, but it resonated with me, and I hope you enjoy!

Episode 089 - Silly Things I’ve Done to Make Boys Like Me

June 8, 2018
In this episode, I share with you some stories of things I have done to make boys like me, or stuff I did in the pursuit of peen - or both, and some of these things compromised my disability, health and safety. From flying by myself on airplane with a damaged wheelchair to meet a guy who paid no attention to me, to waiting 3 hours on a fall evening for a hook up who didn't show and also catching pneumonia, and lastly trying to get home from a hook up gone wrong, only to unintentionally flash people my disabled dick!
 
If you did something silly for love, lust peen and everything in between that compromised your disability, let us know at disabilityafterdark@gmail.com
