Disability Trope or Nope?

Michael Stokes put together an interactive way to have conversations about representations of disability in popular culture! It is an instagram page called @disabilitytropeornope that posts images of characters from graphic novels, films, and television shows and measures them according to common tropes of disability representation. Click the link below to visit the profile, comment on entries, and suggest characters to be added! You’re also welcome to contest the scoring; personally, I think Rain Man should have been a 10.5/10. But Michael says: “Welcome to disability trope or nope! Where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter.”
