Being open about your disability is helpful to society at large. When I go put to eat, I test my blood sugar right at the table and give the shot right there. That way, the little girl with Type 1 two tables down sees it and sees that she doesn’t have to be embarrassed or ashamed. That way, the people I’m eating with can either see it as normal as I do or they can ask questions. When I’m on the pump, I wear it on my arm. A man comes up and tells me he is the father of a T1 teen and asks me questions about how he can be a better father, from my perspective as an adult T1.

Disabilities are discriminated against and I do not judge anyone who keeps them hush-hush. But, don’t discount the great good to society at large in the small little actions that come from living your life as if your disability is a normal day to day act. Because it is.

"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."
