(Someday I should write a post about how autistic writers shaped a lot of my understanding of disability rights and theory and helped me develop the ability to "think about how I think," especially when I was a teenager.)

Ryoga, one of Ranma's competitors transforms into an adorable miniature pig, unhappily at first, but he becomes increasingly philosophical about it as he realizes this allows him to sleep with Akane. It is clear therefore that male is the norm, and it is the female that is one of a variety of attributes (including panda-ness, pig-ness, [DISABILITY],) that signify difference. Furthermore, being female is coded as being inferior to being a pig or a panda.
Should I write about disability in Soul Eater?
You don't know how to deal with this. (No.)
FOOL! My legend dates back to the 12th century and you have 12 episodes left!
Dude, NO! Write about disability in AtLA instead
Heroes Arrive Last: Not-so-frequently asked questions:
What is this?
Heroes Arrive Last is
my birthday party a fest celebrating characters who get lost easily or who have navigational disabilities. All types of work of all ratings are welcome, from original to fannish, including RPF. For a list of possible fannish characters, TV Tropes’s No Sense of Direction page is a good place to start. (It’s not exhaustive, though) There's also some discussion of characters in the comments of this brainstorming post.
I have a navigational disability; I also wanted something fun to do on my birthday!
Now open for prompts! Linking to fanworks starts February 7. There’s no end date.
How can I participate?
You can leave prompts; you can make any type of work (fic, art, graphics, icons, meta, vids, recs, etc., etc.) There’s no minimum or maximum size requirement. Making something for a prompt isn’t required, however--indulge your own plot (etc.) bunnies, and post them/links to them. You can ask for recs; you can make/respond to love meme-style threads for different characters. You can do things I haven’t thought of!
There's also an AO3 collection.
I’d like some resources about navigational impairments, please!
Some articles about navigational impairments are here!
Anything else I should know?
Have fun! If you have any questions, you can ask them in the comments or PM me.
