InvisAbility Girl — On Passing as Disabled
Well written post explaining what it's like to have an invisible disability, when the world judges you on just what it can see.

#Shirtgate / #Shirtstorm - a bunch of people being disappointed and saying "That's inappropriate", not a feminist lynch mob
Assuming this is an accurate representation (I've not searched myself), the guy in the stupid shirt hasn't been 'hounded', he's just very visibly worn an inappropriate shirt, thus had quite a few people react (fairly mildly) to it.

BBC disciplines Graham Norton for wearing AIDS awareness ribbon on chat show · PinkNews.co.uk
Do you make a list of approved symbols? Essentially the question is where do you draw the line on what stuff presenters are allowed to wear and thus show their support (and arguably plug) - e.g. political party rosettes during an election.
