published a trash piece by their “ethicist” which framed disabled people in relationships as burdens. That the non-disabled partner may end up the caregiver and that’s a burden blah blah. Anyway, story and screenshots are in the QT of the QT

The legal industry has an ableism problem and so many disabled law students and prospective law students are either dismayed from entry, forced to self accommodate, or denied opportunities.

Oh! How did I manage to forget this? It took me a year and a half after I passed the CT bar to get admitted, and that admission was conditional for 9 years. I had to submit an affidavit and my psychiatrist had to submit a letter every six months for nine years

I was terrified of losing Bean because disabled parents are still seen as incapable of parenting.

I can't even get into the room where discussions of equality are being held. I mean that metaphorically and literally. My university had a forum on how to increase support for marginalised and oppressed groups. And disabled people couldn't even get in the room.

So if you ever wonder why I am skeptical about bar diversity and inclusion efforts, it’s and the over a decade’s worth of resentment buried deep in my soul. Wrote about it in 2016 for

I was told I couldn't have assistance in the laboratory, an essential aspect of my degree. I was literally told I shouldn't be doing science because I'm . Stephen. Fucking. Hawking. Bitches.

I was sent home early from the set of a major tv show by a major company because they didn’t have accessible transportation to the next set, despite the casting call specifically looking for disabled actors 🙃

A 'team' of doctors decided they weren't going to check out my gallbladder for 3 years When I had surgery a resident decided I was an IV drug user & I was denied pain meds after surgery . IMO,the worse places to experience this are in hospitals

I have no mental health support because I'm a young disabled woman, and it's impossible for me to get support when I have other disabilities. I'm considered inconvenient and annoying because of my "excuses" (i.e. no phonecalls because I'm deaf)

I got an art scholarship after high school (on merit & portfolio). When I enrolled disclosed disability and tried to have an open conversation about access, the educator refused to meet me and the dean said it was her prerogorative not to have me in classes.

Accessibility accommodations, like ramps into shops, staff awareness training, flexible working or accessible public transport... are seen as a “favour” rather than a legal & human rights requirement

people don't consider other forms of communication other than oral in person, and forget that I'm deaf and can't always process the information well

, so many people still primarily focus on if, when or how I’ll recover from my condition, rather than everything I’ve managed to achieve alongside it. Recovery shouldn’t be the singular measure of a chronically ill person’s success.
