#BeingDisabledDoesDefineMe has allowed disabled people to share how their disability has shaped them in a positive way.
The Co-founder of the hashtag Karli Drew started it to share how being disabled is apart of her identify and it’s not always a bad thing.
Disabled writer A.H. shares the hashtag Being Disabled Does Define Me to take back control of the word ‘disabled.’
It’s purpose is to push back from the ‘differently-abled’ narrative and allow people to share how their disability has shaped in a positive way.
Bethany Dawson also used the hashtag to explain to Twitter followers her disability defines her and that is Ok.
