How can one measure if a disability or disorder affects you at work (and thus “is really a disability”) if you are your own boss? If you get along with people and do well with your job, are you automatically not disabled? If you move to a job that’s less your thing, are you suddenly disabled again?
I’m not my own boss at one of my jobs, but I am at the others. And the one where I’m not requires far less social interaction than the others.
There are extreme answers to my question, i.e. Amy of Amy’s Baking Company, but most people are not that extreme.
This is just one of the reasons that disability is socially constructed.
Disability as a concept is created by an expectation that everyone has the same skillsets and abilities, and basically everyone suffers for that. Disabled people just suffer the most from it.
It’s also very connected to capitalism=morality, which is why feminism has failed us over and over. Liberal feminism is very much invested in the idea of “financially liberating” women, and according to that system, income is equivalent to worth and power, “independence” is equivalent to “empowerment”, which is their goal.
The arbitrary and subjective nature of the application of the term “disabled” combined with its association with worthlessness as pertains to capitalism, i.e., “cannot work” (which is how it is actually defined for the most part in government), really boils down to “You’re disabled if you can’t do what other people expect you to be able to do, whatever that might be.”

hello! i like everything, without any of the bullshit disclaimers that most people use. the closest i get to a general dislike towards any genre is prooooobably punk and filk but there are still exceptions that i DO like there. i just tend to be incredibly specific over an extremely broad spectrum.
"True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part."

Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking. (via dumbthingswhitepplsay)
