What's all this about fairness?
OK, what I meant by this post was to go on about fairness in academia and this concept's relation to disability studies. Then, I was distracted and too busy. This theme of "fairness" is something that I came across over and over again when working on my study. For example, "It's not fair to give a disabled person more time, because everyone else has to complete assignments within another shorter period of time." This is an especially frustrating remark, because it makes no sense that someone who has to struggle just to type sentences on the computer should be denied the ability to take longer to complete assignments. Similarly, it seems more unfair that someone with demonstrated creativity and dedication should be told they cannot have accommodations because it "isn't fair" to other people in the program.
