Crip Camp Post

I really enjoyed this film. I loved the commuinity feeling and connectedness throughout the film. It really showed that disbaility is isolating because of our ableist outlook on it, not because it itslef is limiting. I espcially liked the scene when the STD got spread around the camp. It just felt like a very oridinary occurance, and it was nice to see the group dealing with such an oridinary "normal" issue rather than constantly having "to face their diabilities". It helped the viewer realize disabled people are just like them, they attend summer camps, make friends, and have sex.
