There seems to be a stigma that equates disability with 'non-functioning' or asexual. But it's just not true. The way in which we live may be different, but we are just as alive. So how do we go about making this topic less taboo? Open dialogue.
Like anyone, the list of words I'd use for myself has grown with me. Over the years I've added other amazing terms like "artist," and "advocate," but I've also added some unexpected ones. Like "quadriplegic."
