Hey, I'm Alice Hewitt. She/her/hers. I'm 18 and live in Newcastle, England. It's a pleasure to meet you all. Please read my about and faq before asking as I may have already answered your question!
House Slytherin. House Tyrell.
if u think rich disabled people have exactly the same experience as poor disabled people you’re in for a shock mate
maybemartha said: While Geordi definitely counts as disabled representation (there are times when he is social model disabled + times when his tech breaks)99% of the time his vision is better than everyone else’s so he isn’t exactly great representation of blind folks
oh thanks for the warning!
I’ve seen one trailer of it!
My main concern actually is that the majority of the kids are white and presumably cishet, like disabled characters are great but disabled people are a diverse group and thats not necessarily represented
I’ll probably watch it anyway because y’know multiple disabled characters and I’ll post my thoughts on it when I do!
Speaking of Star Trek, Geordi La Forge is a blind character played by a sighted actor but his character REGULARLY turns down cures in favor of using his assistive tech.
oooh very true, and in futuristic sci-fi too! thats always really important to me, we deserve a future
Yeah I think she’s pretty positive, you could argue there’s some compensating going on but she’s not quite Daredevil
I’ll probably include Tyrion, because despite him being a cishet white dude and a pretty awful person he is actually a mainstream little person acted by a little person who isn’t just a jokey side character so yeah
