Train Wrecks and Apologies

October 3, 2012

First of all, let me apologize for how long it's taken me to get this up; I've logged in several times the last couple of days but every time I go to type something, something gets in the way; Katherine is fussy, Gabe needs something, I need to rest (six weeks post-op and there are still the occasional days where I feel like I've been run over by a small truck), etc. So, (omg, seriously, there goes Katherine again!) I'm sorry for the delay.

What I really want to apologize for is my train wreck of a post, Aesthetics vs. Ability. As was pointed out to me in comments, and via email, it was an offensive and hurtful bunch of writing full of unexamined privilege and wrong-thinking. I'm sorry to anyone/everyone that I hurt with my writing, and I'm thankful to those who spoke up to help point out where I went so badly wrong. I'm glad that my readers have taken the time to do this, I really am. I can only promise to continue to try and do better and to learn from this. I hope you'll keep reading.
