yes, academia is unfortunately very ableist, classist, and exclusionary.
Not only is academia very ableist, classist, and exclusionary, it’s meant to be that way. Take it from someone immersed in the field: it fucking sucks. One of the few things I take solace in is when I can make my cohorts extremely uncomfortable by pointing out that they’re actively being ableist, classist, and exclusionary. Watching the color drain out of their faces and hearing very awkward silence is the best, I ain’t even gonna lie.
