These are just four examples of the use of ableism which shows up in my inbox with a Google alert for the term ‘ableism’ in the last couple of days.

Most mails about ableism see ableism as part of a list like sexism, racism… . Very rarely do writings consider how ableism actually can be a contributing factor to other isms such as sexism, racism… . (see various papers ind the bibliography of this blog that cover that aspect of ableism).
