I am going to attach my proposal for the final Disability Myth Project; based on my proposal PLEASE RIGHT MY SHITTY PAPER.
IN SIDE THE PROPOSAL My Thesis need to Edited to something like this….
One of the disability myths that Dolmage scrutinizes is overcoming and compensation. This myth demonstrates how society can misinterpret peoples inherent unique abilities as the cause for overcoming their disability, and therefore masks the underlying struggles that the individual lives with. This myth can be seen in the movie The Butterfly Circus. This movie portrays the ideas of the overcoming and compensation disability myth through the main character, Will, who has no limbs. The film showcases a number of complex scenes where disabled people in 1930s freak shows had the least power and were exploited, yet banded together because it was the only way to survive. Yet, the film also underhandedly exploits the supercrip and inspirational narrative through Wills character that we see so common in films today.
