Ouch weblog: individual blog entry

Have you checked out Disapedia yet? It's a community site for PWDs that's run like Wikipedia. People can register and write articles, edit existing articles and participate in the forums. From the front page:
We are a community of individuals creating a collective disabled knowledge. We are of the opinion that each disabled individual has a piece to the puzzle that is living life with a disability. It is our hope that by combining them together we may one day help someone arrive at their own solution.
Some of the things Disapedia contains:
• disability-related news
• movies, books and other media
• a guide to different disabilities
• a forum where PWDs can discuss various disability-related topics
• disability humor
• disability history.
It does have an entry on the Social Model of Disability, I'm pleased to see. When I checked in last week, I didn't see one. Go check it out. While you're there, enter the Creepy Devotee Contest if you're eligible.
I regret that I don't have any creepy devotee stories myself. I'd actually be open to dating a devotee, but I don't think I've ever met one. Although there was this one guy who flirted with me and a friend with CP...I dunno if he was a dev or just had a crip chick fetish in general. Loved his pick-up line, though. "So, I see you walk with a cane. Yeah, I had a girlfriend in a wheelchair once. Boy, she sure was a cool girl." *yearning, faraway look* What do you guys think? Do you think he was a dev or just into disabled girls?
Whatever he was into, we sure got a laugh out of him that day. Smooth, buddy. Real smooth.
