Title ”Hip to be crip?” : om cripteori, sexualitet och personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning
Author Löfgren-Mårtenson, Lotta
Date 2012
English abstract
This article examines the value of using Crip Theory by investigating what is considered normal sexl life for people with intellectual disabilities in Sweden. By combining Crip Theory with Gagnon and Simon's sexual scripting theory, it concludes that Crip Theory can be of use for researchers and activists, and also suitable for educating staff members, in that it questions sexual norms that are most often taken for granted. However, due to the fact that research of activism inspired by Crip Theory seldom includes intellectual disabilities, its usefulness is limited, and more work is needed to solve problems surrounding agency, stigma and visibility.
