Comment Another likely-overrepresented group... (Score 1) 130

Also disabled folk -- those of us that can't get out of the house easily often get most of our socialization online, especially if the Internet was around when we were still kids or young adults. Many of us (not me) don't identify publicly online as being disabled outside of the relevant discussion groups, though, so our online presence is often far underestimated.

(Unfortunately, most Slashdotters don't seem to realize that we're here reading, whether "we" is referring to being female or being disabled. At least, that's the kind assumption I prefer to make, given people generally don't make comments about how women are stupid or disabled people should be killed when they're aware a member of either group they're slamming is present.)

No problem is so formidable that you can't just walk away from it. -- C. Schulz
