it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
Right? And can we just take a second to imagine and talk about the statistics for disabled girls and women who are living at the intersections of other disprivileges? Black disabled girls, who are often misdiagnosed? Queer disabled women? Poor or trans disabled women?
Disability is a disprivilege we do not talk about enough. Able bodied people are not talking about this enough.
Imagine a world where animals are automatically wired to respond negatively to misogyny.
