"…I have a friend who’s disabled."
"…my grandmother’s in a wheelchair."
"…I’ve read books about disabilities."
"…I broke my ankle and used crutches for a few weeks."
totally agree. Able-bodied people have absolutely no idea what it’s like regardless of the people with disabilities they know. Knowing a person with a disability and actually having one are two completely different things.
when i say i hate school it doesn’t mean i hate education and knowledge. it means that i hate selfish and ignorant people there. it means that i hate stress and high expectations. it means that i hate being treated like shit. it fucking means that i hate feeling like a failure all the time.
Couldn’t have said it better myself
