Out of curiosity, does anyone in the community *actually* prefer "differently abled" to "disabled"? I find it obnoxious and condescending, personally, and I know there's a big thing against it in general... any exceptions?

For those who insist on calling people warriors, fine, whatever. But understand that I am not at war with my , I am at war with & . And the only way this war will end is when absolute is achieved. NO compromises.

I'm a person going to NYC with a rollator walker next weekend. How can I find out which stations are and aren't accessible? Last time my partner and I went, there was a horrifying lack of elevators; and this is coming from a Bostonian.

I have nothing but good memories of my 2016 internship . So tell me , why do your job postings have ableist requirements that discriminate against applicants based on mobility, strength, weight, size, etc.? This is unacceptable.

There is more than one type of impairment, so should cover more than wheelchair access. Thinking beyond this could open up many opportunities for employees.

Hello friends. Just your daily reminder that humans have a wide range of interests. There's no one way you have to do something -- no one path life has to take. Never be ashamed for navigating the world in a way that is "unique."

Advice needed: is the term "housebound" okay to use, or problematic? I'm planning a blog post on travelling when you can't leave your house. Would appreciate thoughts on this term from the community. Any thoughts ?

8 months of pointless benefits assessments. Nothing has changed for me health-wise, but still they prod & poke. I am exhausted. The Uncertainty sucks the life out of you.

Went to bed early yesterday with a 9 migraine and now I feel like death. Other sufferers, do you consider yourself and/or are you 'officially' registered as such?

Its rude to stare at ANYONE, & people are part of that anyone. Staring at BIPOC is rude & they shouldn't need to explain themselves. Staring at LGBTQAI+ folk is rude & they shouldn't need to explain themselves. To say disability is any different is kinda .

Tweeting is easy. It's harder to be a or different person and walk through a space that feels hostile with your head up high. Whether you're claiming your space or realising the space is yours to claim. You'll get there. I see you. I love you. I am you 👊🏼🔥

A ramp or any other means of entry for people does far more than provide access. It affords: Presence. Opportunity. Representation. Inclusion. Participation. Independence. And so much more . . .
