Prove Yourself!

able bodied people trying to “prove” that people arent really disabled doesnt actually help any disabled people, it just makes it harder for us to get accommodations. you (able bodied people) have a preconceived notion about what “real” disabled people are like, but the reality is that disability is different for everyone. theres not just one way to be disabled and by trying to pin down who you think “isnt really disabled”, or even just who you think doesnt deserve accommodations you’re making it more difficult for us

we already have so many hoops to jump through to prove we’re disabled enough to deserve accommodations , we dont need able people “trying to help” by telling us who they think is fake when our experiences are vast and differ from person to person

able people can reblog this
