Sample text

I’d sought out a social services job out of a sense of political commitment. I believed that working with “disadvantaged” youth was a way to make a difference in the world – along the lines of something like global justice. When I first started the job, I had no training or experience, but I had a lot of ideas and enthusiasm – which were politically, rather than individualistically, oriented. I imagined watching John Wayne movies with the children and collectively ­critiquing their racism, for example.

I would state my discomfort about what I was doing, but somehow the self-centred story of the perceived ridiculousness of my body having been chosen to do such a thing often won out. This “my body” completely ignored my whiteness, nondisability, adulthood, and maleness and instead focused exclusively on my effeminacy – the fact that it seemed funny to me that a white, male, non-disabled, adult body was considered appropriate to overpower disabled Aboriginal children clearly shows my sense of disconnect from legacies of colonization and eugenic institutionalization (see Chapman 2012).

But then I took on the training regime of what I needed to learn to do my job (see also Chapman 2012). And so instead of watching cowboy movies critically and asking the children what they thought, I watched things like “Ten Things to Do Instead of Hitting” (Sunburst 1995) uncritically and then told the children what to do. One of the things that my training regime entailed, because of who I’d always been, was ongoing concern about my ability to “set limits,” “establish boundaries,” and generally discipline and control.
