With a terrible cry the Balrog fell forward, and its shadow plunged down and vanished. But even as it fell it swung its whip, and the thongs lashed and curled about the wizard’s knees, dragging him to the brink. He staggered and fell, grasped vainly at the stone, and slid into the abyss. ‘Fly, you fools!' he cried, and was gone.

People with disabilities, not “disabled people”
But this is incredible!
I don’t know if you’re disabled or not, but I hope you’re not ablesplaining and telling disabled folks how we should describe ourselves…
First of all, in many English speaking countries, “disabled people” is greatly preferred to person-first (ie “people with disabilities”) language and is much more common across the board. In the US, person-first language is more common. But most of the forces pushing for person-first language are social services, educational, and other non-disabled professionals.
Some people with disabilities in the U.S. prefer person-first language. But many other disabled people, including people with more politicized disability identities, greatly prefer “disabled person.”
Great project. Great info.
isn’t the first girl out of littlebig?
