The One In Seven icon
I'm more grateful than I can say to Trinity for generously creating the rather spiffing icon to the right. Smart, isn't it?
The lack of obvious reference to disability in the image is deliberate: my hope is that the icon will pique the curiosity of non-disabled visitors sufficiently for them to click on it and read the post to which it links. Disability discrimination (at least in the West) is more often the result of thoughtlessness than deliberate malice: I'm hoping, in a small way, to make people think. And I'm aiming at precisely those people who would shrink - for whatever reason - from following up any link which was obviously disability-related.
So I'm pleased and proud to invite any bloggers who support disability equality* to publish the icon on their own sites. The invaluable Goldfish has kindly provided me with the necessary coding:
Copy that little lot and paste it into your blogger template, and Robert should be your dad's brother.
I'm keeping everything crossed for a sudden proliferation of little green icons across the blogosphere. And I think you should know that there's a strong possibility of unattractive sulking if that doesn't happen.
*By which I mean that you don't have to be disabled yourself, or to have a blog which concentrates on disability issues, to use the icon. You just have to mind about discrimination.
