apparently there was a discussion on eugenics today in my sister’s classroom (started out with teacher saying that if he and his new wife have a “genetically abnormal” baby they’re going “throw ‘it’ away”). my sister responded with “YEAH? WELL?… YOU’RE GENETICALLY ABNORMAL!””
(very mature, i know. but…)
then she began quoting amanda baggs! and talking about neurodiversity! and how some lives are valued more than others because of things like ableism!
i’m halfway horrified that she could talk to her teacher in that tone (the corean in me is looking like this:O_O) but this is my 16 year old pro-mccain wants-to-be-a-missionary sister!! quoting amanda baggs! confronting an authority figure on his ableism!
(all i could do is squeal and say philosophercrip would be very proud.)
