About me

There are some ways by which feminist philosophy of incapacity
and incapacity studies can benefit from considering negatively.
In a single exploration of the methods during
which a specific distinction-particularly, disability-is vital, Garland-Thomson (2011,
604) theorizes disabled people as "misfits" inside
a society of equivalence, noting that "misfitting can yield revolutionary perspectives." She argues: "When we fit harmoniously and properly into the world, we neglect the reality of contingency because the world sustains us. When we expertise misfitting and acknowledge that disjuncture for its political potential, we expose the relational component and the fragility of fitting" (597).
The distinction of disability as misfit opens up political
possibilities through confronting what fits with that which doesn't.

It's on this antagonistic misfit that the nonidentity of disability is exposed.
Critical reflection on the logic of equivalence and fitting has implications for
current conceptions of distinction, usually, and disability, particularly.
