One of the reasons plastic straws only on request doesn't work is that it enables gatekeeping & discrimination. Servers have interrogated myself and many other chronically ill disabled people to determine if we're 'disabled enough' to be allowed to drink water.

Today I watched a comedy video a friend shared that equated gluten and peanut allergies with having "soft" kids who can't take not getting a trophy in sports. The is strong with that one.

God, there's a thread at the top of the offmychest subreddit on reddit right now and it's all about how this guy literally hates his autistic son and the comments are full of praise for his 'efforts' and suggestions to get his kid ABA and....I just...I just can't.

I agree as well. The wheelchair costume is very very very rude. And it's not just other countries' airports where it's not cool to play with the wheelchairs when you don't need one.

Dear Ableds, want to be an ally to disabled people? If you see someone being ableist, speak up. Don’t place all the pressure on us to take on the prejudices (big or small) that we face. Ableists don’t react well when we speak up, but they’ll listen to you.

The only reason I haven't muted the hashtag is because I need to know who to unfollow for being I continue to be "impressed" that despite Trump being the worst human ever, y'all are focused on calling him fat & mentally ill.

I love this idea. Imagine if every child felt this welcomed at school. Why in 2019 are educators still segregating children with ?

Recently I had a massive pain flare up in my arms & hands. It made drinking very difficult, so my host gave me a paper straw. It quickly disintegrated and became unusable. An abled person then commented "at least you're saving the sea turtles." 😒

The and really jumped out from my husband's family. His family made no effort to include him in anything this week by doing things that couldn't be accommodated for him (bc of his wheelchair) and when he got upset they kept dismissing it.

PSA to ALL university peeps. If a light in a room flickers constantly on & off please do get it fixed. I spent the entire morning class giving myself an aura & warding off a seizure. Please find work arounds.

Expert: [tacit premise] "If you're not esteemed in my field of expertise, your thoughts on the topic need not be considered." Corollary: "Why would autistics have anything useful to contribute to discussion of autism?"

Anytime I get out of a car & think, "I'll try it without my /, I'll only be 5 minutes" I regret it 5 min later. PAIN. Then I think of the nondisabled people who say, "I'll only be 5 minutes" when they take an parking space.

Some days I physically & mentally cannot deal with the absolute ignorance & blatant hatred towards the community. Your is so ingrained you're blind to the fact that disability is the one minority group that you can unwillingly become a part of at any time.
