Disablist Language Alert #2

Disablism on twitter...
  • from @lipsticklori: SU2TS: This is lame. Not as lame as STLD2, but still lame. Just as well though... don't think I have the brain power for thinking. #DanceMM
  • from @STFUParents: Getting submissions together for this week's @mommyishdotcom column, all about crazy baby names! What are the craziest names you've heard?

In blogs...
  • RH Reality Check gains a mention for use of hysteria / hysterical three times in one post.
  • Via Feminist Law Professors, we see men saying "Dude, you’re crazy", about male contraception. Originally in the New York Times
  • Pharyngula quotes Glenn Beck describing the Norwegian killer as crazy
  • More from Pharyngula, but sadly this time his own words. He describes Breivik as deranged, delusional, insane, lunatic, violently insane, and stupid.
