When I demand equal access, equal opportunity, equal rights, I’m not insisting on my superiority, innate or acquired. I don’t want special treatment. I want to see the removal of cultural paradigms about what types of bodies and minds should be valued and what types of bodies and minds should be deigned for marginalization. I don’t want a world that advantages me over you. I want a world where oppressive systems that ultimately hurt everyone have been overcome, dismantled.
