Stella Young TEDTalks

Stella Young

20 Apr, 2014

Young, a disability activist, leads a talk on what she calls “inspiration porn” – society’s habit of making disabled people into inspirational figures. She challenges our culture to raise their expectations of what disabled men and women are capable of doing and to look upon disability as the “norm” and not the exception.

Disability doesn’t make you exceptional, but questioning what you think you know about it does.

Stella Young: I'm not your inspiration, thank you very much
