On Not Being Human


Dr. Morton Ann Gernsbacher just released this article in her Presidential Column On Not Being Human

Also read Susan Senator's post today and her reaction to this piece -- another way of criminalizing the disabled (remember Captain Hook as a narrative figure as an example of how the disabled have been represented) and therefore finding reason to either exterminate or segregate them. Read the Boston Globe article she posted today here.
