I thought this reading was

I thought this reading was very interesting. I had never thought that disabilities could be a construct of culture rather than a construct of fate. To have success, you need to have failure to compare it to. The only way I can see out of that is if no one compared themselves with one another. However, I had a problem with this reading. It's whole point was that cultures are inevitably disabling, but it really doesn't offer a solution. It just says that no matter what, someone is going to be disabled.
