lizcommotion: a hand drawn/colored happy cane (disability cane happy)

So I try not to put too much of the politics on dreamwidth and reserve my politics rage/rants for Twitter, but this concerns a lot of folks here and is also just...outrageous. Egregious. Many adjectives.

A non-profit (@InvDisability) has trademarked the term "invisible disabilities" and apparently is enforcing it by stopping disabled individuals and organizations from using the term. ALL THE RAGE.

There is a Storify of tweets about it for more info.

There is a Change.org petition (with a sadly small number of signatures) to end the trademark of an identity.

If you can, please help signal boost, as I am currently low on spoons.
