I am telling you now because I want you to stop telling girls and women with disabilities that we’re broken, that we need prayers, that we’re burdens, that it’s okay if someone hurts us because “they’re probably just stressed” from having to “deal” with us, or that we’re pretty “for a girl in a wheelchair.”

Instead of Dairy Queen I want to make a Non-Dairy Queen and have all the same stuff but completely dairy free for lactose intolerances, dairy allergies, and vegans. 

(Plus you could totally probably do that with parody laws, yeah? That’s actually a thing, right?)

Would you put a franchise up on Spoonie Island? (Once Spoonie Island exists anyway.)

A note to non-disabled people: If you ask people to hide symptoms of their disability because it makes you uncomfortable, you should take a step back and take a look at yourself. The problem is with you, not them, and it is you who needs to change.
