Let's stop babbling! Let's start! Let's just do it! You, dear Gessi are an institution and I, I am many. To be precise, 1.7 million people. We all have in common that we are disabled, in one form or another.
We are not impaired and we are not people with special needs and we are not differently abled, my colleague Marlies Hübner wrote recently. At best, we have learned to find our way in a world that is not oriented towards us, but towards a completely outdated norm. By the way, the needs of disabled people are in no way special: Living. Just live. With everything that goes with it.
If, on the other hand, I describe myself as impaired, as this colleague wrote, then I am admitting to being defective and taking on the responsibility of not being able to participate in society, because after all I have an impairment, not society.
But I don't want to accept it that way! Because none of us is defective. Yes, we are disabled. By the prevailing social system - Not by ourselves.
And here dear Gessi, comes my wish: Blow up this system! Blow up this structure of discrimination and oppression! Take the tools in your hands: audio description, sign language, descriptive subtitles, wheelchair accessible paths and toilets, relaxed performances and the most important: real willingness to create a system at eye level. Employees who are not employed in spite of or because of their disability, but who contribute their skills and knowledge. Eliminate the term "disability" and replace it with "All for All"! We don't need it anymore!
Dear Gessi, working with you awakens promising feelings in me - you and I, we write history and rise up for the revolution!
Until then: Give me courage, creativity and strength.
