This is probably the best place to put the following rant.
Thursday we had group/self evaluations for the group project groups so far [basically, how I think they're doing so far, what they can improve going forward, etc etc] and most of mine were really awesome, and I really liked that self-esteem boost. And then we got to the last one.
"What things could this person improve going forward?:
You need to be more flexible with meeting places despite your physical limitations."
? I know what it's tied directly too, as well. We were supposed to meet Thursday between classes, which is an hour break. They wanted to meet in the library, and I emailed the group saying:
The time is great for me but the place would be really rough for me to get to in that amount of time -- and the weather is screwing with my arthritis so it's just gonna get worse over the week. There's a couple other places we could meet -- the lounge in the Sem II building [third floor of E, I think?] and there's also several lounges in the CAB on the second floor, and they're usually pretty quiet/empty.
So I gave a legitimate reason as well as two completely appropriate alternate meeting places, and I'm told that I'm being "inflexible."
Right. Let me just drop the cane and skip across campus, you asshole
And this is a group of self-selected supposed feminists. Yeah. Lovely. I have no idea what to do. One of the faculty was there when I got the sheet and I just totally froze. I mean, what was I supposed to do, get all snarky on her in front of the entire group? I know I should probably talk to the faculty but I'm so terrified of being seen as "that whiner" [even though I know I'm not, and that I'm legally protected because of my disabilities] that I can't make myself.
