Tweets like this only INCREASE the pressure towards performative disability, by reminding us once again that our is always being judged & scrutinized by onlookers, and that we need to fit a certain stereotype in order to be seen as enough to accommodate.

I understand that many people will see this and say “so they’re faking it then.” I won’t assume there aren’t cases where abled people fake to take advantage of the system, but what we’re talking about here is something very VERY different.

"You wrote a book. You've done radio interviews, made speeches that left people emotional, had your blogs mentioned on 'Women's Hour', explained to kids in ways that they never forgot, and fought locally. Helped people. Don't think you don't MATTER! " - Hubby. <3

Pssst... benefits are set so low all over that they pay far below the line and limit disabled people so they can't earn more than far the below the poverty line. PASS IT ON.

In my case (and this isn’t uncommon in the community either,) it really doesn’t help that my level of ability varies widely - not just on a day to day basis, but within the course of a day as well. I’m accused of faking my identity for attention A LOT.
