On being an unperson

Being an unperson means being at the mercy of opinions that other people have about you.

This video was created as a presentation on the experience of being treated as a 'person with disabilities' rather than as a person.  We all want to be known as the person we are and for many of us, the dismissal of our identity comes in small doses.  For others, it is a complete disregard.  Sometimes the denial of our identity is violent, sometimes silent.  However, for any of us, when we are denied recognition and acknowledgment of our identity - it is the most insulting and most painful assault there is.
