Definitely Severely Euphemized
[Image description: "Severely Euphemized" t-shirt from the Nth Degree.]
Proving once again that faith organizations can be among the most strenuous in bending inside out and sideways to avoid using the word "disability," I give you the Lutheran (ELCA) summer youth event for disabled teens.... the Definitely Abled Youth Leadership Event. Look around the page, see if you can find the word "disability," or "disabled," or "accessibility," or.... hoo-boy.
(The program may be fine for what it is, but you have to wonder about a program that won't even use the D word in its website.... )
