Kicking Kittens

Big Daddy Autism
Both Hands and a Flashlight
Life Is A Spectrum
On the Spectrum
And anyone else whose life is affected by a disability,
This message is for you.

Kicking Kittens is looking for your stories. Don't be put off by the title. It refers to the attitude of some people that finding joy or humor or happiness in the middle of disability is as offensive as kicking kittens. This is a place where people can post positive and funny stories. Scott, I know you have posted comics there. That's how I found your blog. I mentioned the above blogs by name because I find them encouraging, inspiring, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.

From the home page, here are the rules:

The rules

There has got to be common ground. I have started this blog to give people a place to tell their stories...positive stories . Too often we are mired down in the hows and whys, causes and cures. It is easy to forget that we are talking about people. One of the misconceptions that I have run into is that because I have children with disabilities-I am not allowed to have joy-nor are my children allowed to be joyful. Some of the comments I have received after relaying a funny story or anecdote...well you would think I had been kicking kittens.
So here are the rules. Anyone can submit a story, OR just a couple of sentences, OR a list of five great things either about their children or themselves. It must be positive, There will be no discusion of causes, cures, treatments, etc. There are more than enough places for that. Mean people will be deleted. If you are interested in taking part in this adventure please submit your story to please no pictures or video-lets keep it simple. 
 Take a look at Kicking Kittens if you haven't already. I think you'll be encouraged. Post a story and encourage others, too. (Not to mention the linkback. Win-win for everybody.)
