I’m naive

February 28th, 2009 | Category: Life

So, apparently, according to some folks on this message board, I’m naive. I’ve basically deluded myself into thinking that people with disabilities can lead full lives without government sponsored sex.

I find it very difficult, and very frustrating to argue with these people, their ideas. They have such a different attitude than mine. They use being disabled as an excuse for not doing some very doable things. A guy actually argued that we can’t have a real social life because we require too much help from the “ABs” (able-bodieds), or because ultimately, we slow down and inconvenience people. Thinking like that is exactly what holds us back, but they’re so stuck in their “disability community,” they don’t understand that things can be different.

This is why I avoid the disability community, it’s too depressing.
