I recently looked at the lists I am listed in by other people on Twitter. Quite a few of the people called the grop I was in "hip crips." Maybe it's just me, but when I think of myself I am not a "crip." I am not crippled I am mobility impaired. I have no problem saying I'm disabled, but a "crip?" No, I do not think of myself that way.
Is this blogged stemmed from some sort of denial? I guess it could be, but I sincerely doubt it. I just don't belong in those groups. The other bothersome groups I found myself listed in were three "team gimps." Do I even have to say how crazy that drives me?
