CapriUni BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales (228* d) RE: BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales 01 Dec 11


I just saw those suggestions (I was away to New York State [from Virginia] from the 25th-28th).

Your link to the Conomar and Triphine story came back with a 404 error message, so I'll have to hunt down a different link, and read the story for myself before I make a judgement on it. But right now, I am leery of equating evil with disability-- or even the modern psychological diagnosis of psychopathy with evil, because that just reinforces the ancient bigotry against the disabled, without really shedding light on what the fear actually is.
