This study is based on interviews with people with intellectual and neuropsychiatric functional diversity. The aim was to examine how people with intellectual and neuropsychiatric functional diversity pursue resistance and activism and construct their position within the activism. I also wanted to investigate how the activist position can be possible to intake for the interviewees, even though they are often represented as not political. The results showed that people with intellectual and neuropsychiatric functional diversity in many ways get limited by stigmatizing representation, which makes it difficult to take an activist position. At the same time the interviewees are upsetting the order when they engage in, both conscious and unconscious, activist actions that challenge the stereotypical representation. This entails that the interviewees’ resistance makes it possible for more people to engage in various forms of resistance and activism. (Less)
