In Feminist ueer Crip Alison Kafer imagines a different future for disability and disabled bodies Challenging the ways in which ideas about the future and time have been deployed in the service of compulsory able bodiedness and. This book at times felt like a series of close readings with simultaneously too much and not enough analysis Nb Part of my challenge with getting through it was that it was hard to access the footnotes on the Kindle version the links weren't going to the specific notes so I started reading them as chunks andor skipped some for a few chapters I think Kafer's analysis is much interesting and nuanced in the footnotes and some of those details and observations would have served the reader better as part of the main text Overall I think there were a lot of interesting points but the work sometimes read like a series of observations disconnected from a larger thesis In some chapters specifically the one around problematizing the relationship between the pro choice movementabortion accessableist language and how reproductive justice attempts to counter that that works in others it didn'tOne of my larger critiues was that her use of race analysis at points seemed inauthentic andor tacked on andor appropriative in an aspirationally intersectional feminist way though she does repeatedly affirm that she knows disabled POC exist There also isn't much on neurodivergence again except in passingin name I appreciate the appendixes which include resources on creating scent free spaces and the PISSAR checklist for safe and accessible bathrooms and the footnotes also include a ton of resources and other readingsAlso TW for some outdated gender terminology and cissexist feminist analysis Gender identity and intersex issues are kind of umbrella ed into ueerness and I think there is a marked lack of specificity that probably stood out because Kafer is so focused on the specificity of language use in her other analyses

Able mindedness Kafer rejects the idea of disability as a pre determined limit She juxtaposes theories movements and identities such as environmental justice reproductive justice cyborg theory transgender politics and disability. I thought the analysis in this book was good but it lacked a main argument It was like a bunch of topics let's talk about time now let's talk about environmentalism I liked the way she tried to balance different stances being pro choice while also uncomfortable with parents choosing abortion to eliminate disability opposing the pityingheroic discourse of trying to cure disability while also acknowledging that some disabilities do involve physical pain that everyone would like to avoid I just wished the book were cohesive and advocated something rather than just critiuing other theorists or cultural messages
