    I don't think its really a culture, I mean we can all relate to one another and all the shit we have to deal with day to day but its like joining a drug rehab.

    You get to all go in a circle and talk about your issues and people can relate to what your going through because they are also dealing with it.

    i totally disagree with the idea of a disability culture. in fact, i find the concept ludicrous. one need only try to find common ground amongst the various disabilities to see the divisions.

    Culture doesn't mean identical in every way. When we say the drug culture, we encompass people who do various drugs and lead various lifestyles while doing drugs.

    You hit the nail on the head. If you mold the definition to fit the situation, obviously it it going to be that "culture." It seems that here, we are seeing a flex-definition. This would be a more focused discussion if a definition of culture had been given to us at the beginning. Then we would be talking about the same thing.
