If someone wants to write a newspaper article about you, say, getting your PhD as a blind person, is it too much to make sure they can define "inspiration porn" before granting an interview? Can I request editorial review to make sure it doesn't go that route? #disability #blind

And these are things that would improve higher education for everybody and make it a more humane place in general.
