Stuck in Neutral by Terry TruemanThis book is a frightening little package of really intense ableism, and of course its been heaped with accolades. The authors life very closely parallels that of his characters--he has a severely disabled son with cerebral palsy and has won acclaim/prizes for writing about it, and draws much of the material from his own personal experience as detailed in the afterward. Most disturbing in light of that is that its unclear whether or not the disabled character is killed by his father because of a supposed diminished quality of life, and the book sympathetically portrays a parent who DOES kill their disabled child. Id hate to be Truemans real son. Watch your back kid. Im sick of literature/movies that project non-disabled peoples fears, hatred and insecurities on disabled people and then kill us off because of our unsubstatiated suffering, which is actually just based on non-disabled peoples ideas about how our lives should be. This book sympathetically argues about killing disabled people, and got lots of prizes. Ick. Ack. Bllllllpt. Argh. Eeeek. Hate. It.

Stories about kids with disabilities – A boy, a wheelchair, and a Christmas story
Tall and slender with a wide smile, brown hair and pale blue eyes, Connor is a movie-star-handsome seventeen-year-old high school junior that girls his age would typically want to date. Because Connor has Cerebral Palsy, cannot walk, and uses a motorized wheelchair to get around, teenage girls are not flocking to his side hoping to be his girlfriend. Fatherless since birth, raised entirely by his mother and sister, and taught almost exclusively by female teachers since he entered the school system, Connor has limited interaction with the male gender. An inquisitive young man, Connor has a studious and inquiring mind and an unshakeable sense of right and wrong that has been drilled into him during a strict upbringing. He often asks me questions that a son would ask his father or a kid brother would ask his older brother.

I can hear it, the balled-up toilet paper chafing his crack. Then he starts up again, this time more aggressively. A couple minutes later, Gregg finally steps out, a big, muscular man in an old Coors Light shirt. Back in the recreation room, I leave him with the TV on. I go check up on some of the other guys and distribute some meds. I come back, take a seat on the other end of the couch, and we talk some.
