It has taken a long time for the condition of being positioned as “disabled” to be conceptualized as an oppression, rather than an unproblematic description of the characteristics and functionings of the bodies of some individuals. Even today in the subdiscipline with which I am most familiar, political philosophy, a relatively abstract notion of having a disability still appears in writings concerning justice, desert and responsibility, as the paradigm of the sort of disadvantage people might suffer that is simply a matter of bad luck.
