Today’s #AntiAbleistComposition feature is “Cassandra Isn’t Doing the Robot: On Risky Rhetorics and Contagious Autism” by Remi Yergeau. The essay is published in Rhetoric Society Quarterly‘s 50:3 issue (2020).

Excerpt:

“As a theory, it highlights fissures in rhetorical studies, enabling us to pinpoint how and where gendered rhetorics have elided more capacious figurings of queerness and disability. Indeed, in all of this talk of prophecy, I am left wondering about the future of autistic people, of autistic eros writ large. Will we ever escape a discourse of pathology and involuntariness?”
