Some words worse than having disability. Someone I spoke with the other day kept using the word "handicapped." Since he worked for a disability rights organization, I thought he should know better than to use that word to refer to people with disabilities. I had a strong, almost physical reaction to the word, and finally told him - in no uncertain terms - to stop using it. Later, I wondered why his choice of terms mattered so much.
