Objectification of Disability (Stella Young)

This is a TEDx talk by Stella Young, which is actually entitled “Inspiration Porn and the Objectification of Disability.”  It’s a unique, entertaining and intelligent perspective.  It’s worth the 9-1/2 minutes to listen.

“Stella Young is a comedian, disability advocate and Editor of ABC’s Ramp Up website, the online space for news, discussion and opinion about disability in Australia.”
