"Funcophobia" and the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity

"Funcophobia" and the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity

Dear All on my mailing list,

Please, note that the Swedish Academy (i.a. responsible for the Nobel Prize in Literature) - in collaboration with various disability organizations and functional impairment experts - has decided to enter a new Swedish word, namely "funcophobia" (Sw. "funkofobi") into their official word list over the Swedish language. Funcophobia is defined as "prejudice against people with functional variations". Needless to say, this is a huge step forward for all disability groups, including persons with the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity.

With my very best regards
Yours sincerely
