    It seems like critical mass is being hit on important topics of discrimination these days in the news-- highlighting more about sexism or power role abuses (ie the whole "me too" campaign on facebook) and racism/abuse of power with the attention on police shootings etc

    This is all excellent and about time.....but I have been feeling frustrated that "invisible disabilities" seems like one of the last places to be publicly outraged about by a mass of people demanding non-discrimination...sort of like being obese....certain topics even educated usually "fair minded" folks sometimes roll their eyes or wink at one another as they still don't buy it

    Does anyone have a concise current article that is educational they recommend that addresses the import of seeing Invisible disabilities same way we might all the "ism's " etc? something that could appeal to educated and non-educated folks? I would love to see a critical mass of discussion or concern be hit on that just as it has been since Weinstein got outed.........

    lauluce as long as you manage to stay alive, there's hope

    I feel exactly the same way, mate. We are a terrible discriminated "minority", yet absolutely nobody cares about as a collective
