Here is this week’s question:

What would you like the general public to know about your disabilities, disability in general, or any other relevant subject?

Earlier this week I had an online social media discussion about language and disability. The conversation revolved around the idea of person first language, or PFL (person with a disability, woman who has diabetes) versus identity first language, or IFL (disabled person, diabetic woman).

I have written other posts about my preferences regarding language, and you can read them here and here. I prefer journalists write or speak about me in the media using…
