iPhone : Most upsetting in explaining disability issues to ableds is summed up in reactions to Ali Stoker’s #Tonys2019 win:

All are celebrating she won, only disabled people are upset there wasn’t a ramp.

Ableds are really mad we’re mentioning it at all. Will they build ramps? Doubt it.

iPhone : So my rental company charged me a late fee of $103 even though I communicated that the org providing me w/rental assistance was sending the check on Friday 🙃

if anyone wants to celebrate pride month by Venmoing me please do so.


iPhone : Forcing the first wheelchair user to win a Tony to sit backstage because you couldn’t be arsed to install a ramp is uh laden with symbolism eh.

iPhone : #RepresentationMatters up until it’s time to put a ramp to the stage at #Tonys2019.

This is why disabled ppl care jack shit about person first language or “not seeing disability” —because when inclusion matters, it’s not accessible.

If you’re not accessible it’s not inclusive.
