Ableism is a practice of superiority, alongside racism, sexism or homophobia – a habit of mind that says some human beings are more valuable than others. It divides us into winners and losers. Barriers are imposed on those who are devalued by ableism. This kind of mentality benefits the authorities and corporations that profit off our work and our in-fighting.
