My Body Doesn’t Oppress Me; Society Does

Understanding the social and medical models of disability can be difficult for people who are raised in the mainstream non-disabled (and usually inaccessible) American culture.

Understanding the concept of Universal Access can also be difficult – and so Dean Spade has created a super-awesome short, a conversation between Stacey Milbern and Patty Berne that dissect and really delve into these topics.

It’s a fantastic video for understanding these pieces, from real experts who have lived the talk.

Can you post it with captions?

It has captions! I would not have posted it if it didn't. If you go to the settings on the bar of the video (the flower looking black icon), just toggle the captions to "on". Sorry I can't get the captions to stay on by default - I tried, but I can't.

Are there captions? I don't see any.
