From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Piss On Pity is a rallying cry for those in the disability-inclusive circles of world politics. According to its proponents, the implication of the slogan is that Pity, while seeming to be a positive, helpful emotion, actually is based in conscious or unconscious aversion to disabled people, and the ableism which that aversion consciously or unconsciously represents. Activists using the slogan will often explain that their ultimate goal in a militant slogan of this type is to get across the message that, like anti-racism and anti-sexism, they want to purge pity from worldwide social discourse on disability, at both the governmental and cultural levels, and instead foster inclusion and equal power politics.
