Cripple Threat

E29 - Edward Scissorhands (1990)


Today we watched Edward Scissorhands, an early Tim Burton film about a young man with scary scissors for hands that turns out to be a surprisingly heartfelt and progressive portrait of disability. We also discuss the joys of creating DIY accessibility solutions, the stress of dressing a disabled body, how to overcome complacency with inaccessible spaces, common ableist assumptions about cripple finances, and how to hug a wheelie.
