Diet Soda Discrimination  »  Deep First Thoughts for the Day
Something really bugs me about all those so-called health articles about the 'dangers' of diet soda. They're always saying how artificial sweetener is the reason it's so bad, but it's not as if soda is the old product containing artificial sweetener. Light yogurt is full of NutraSweet. But does anyone in the health community warn folks against consuming it? Nope. Everyone treats yogurt like it's some kind of god-food that can do no wrong. Well, if NutraSweet is evil in soda, then it's evil in yogurt too. That's just a fact. Deal with it!I don't understand this recent need to ...

Or Maybe Not  »  Depressed Single Mother
I'm starting to get worried now. Maybe I shouldn't go to this group. There's the lesbian mother's group, and they meet on a Saturday afternoon, which I can't do because I've no babysitter. But there's another one called Rainbow Families that I could do, because it's for the children rather than the adults. They go on outings and such. So I'd be taking The Boy with me.I know it'd be good for The Boy. I know I'm a bad mother for even considering not going. But I feel ill. I can't stop shaking! I want to hide away. I think ...

'The language of shirkers and scroungers?' Talking about illness, disability and coalition welfare reform - Disability & Society  »  Through Myself and Back Again

Someone has written a translation of the Braille word below it: "shafted". Photo copyright Lisa Egan.Yesterday's discussion on the BBC's You and Yours was about disability, cuts and welfare reform, and featured Where's the Benefit's own Bendy Girl. Some contributors' comments offered a clear example of how attitudes to disability haven't really changed much since Victorian times - if not before. Some academic research recently published has been talking about how these ...
