View Diary: Promising Technology Could Bankrupt BP (57 comments)

  •  Well, they weren't mentioned at all. (0+ / 0-)

    Which is fine in a single instance.  But I can't tell you how many times I see "just bike!  You can do it!" comments, diaries, articles, news stories, etc. etc. etc.  And the subtext (and sometimes text) is, "anyone can do it."  People who cannot are, at best, glossed with a single dismissive sentence.

    People with physical limitations and disabilities are pretty much invisible in media outside that specifically addressed to them.  That's what being marginalized and left out looks like.

    I'm not angry or blaming you or upset about your diary.  But that's why I wanted to mention it.
