Episode 077 - DisabilityAfterDark Reviews Me Before You (Me Before Ew)

March 16, 2018

In this episode, I decided that I wanted to review the big blockbuster romance "Me Before You", and also shed light on why this trash-fire of a movie was so ableist and depicted sex and disability so poorly.  

Along with my review, I have included Youtube clips of disabled people discussing the book the movie was adapted from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9bkWJtm-mU

and amazing look at the movie as a horror film, by author Carrie Wade.


Enjoy this brand new episode of DisabilityAfterDark!

Episode 076 - Get Your Gimpy Groove On - Sex, Dancing and Disability

March 9, 2018

In this episode, I talk about my experiences going to an event and dancing, and what dancing has meant to me as a disabled person.  I share how the way we talk about dancing and sexuality is ableist and how when we talk about dancing and disability, we usually don't talk about sensuality, but rather, rehabilitation.  Ugh.  Take a listen on why I think dancing as a spastic, gimp can be sexy and sensual as fuck.

Episode 073 - Promposal or Pity-Posal? The Rise of Digital Ableism

February 16, 2018

In this episode, I talk about the rise of viral promposals where non-disabled people ask disabled teens to the prom in high school or middle school and have it recorded and it goes viral or gets picked up by the news outlets.  I share why I think this is problematic in all the ways and why I think we need to reconsider our consumption of "digital ableism" and promposals, and suggest that the disabled person may feel differently about the whole thing, and that the media must also focus on them.  I have included some examples of this digital ableism below.
