The disability community is the umbrella for the rest of the minorities!
Meaning, there are queers, there are trans folks, there are black folks, there are PoC, and there are Native Americans etc…
Life isn’t just about the “perfect” blond haired blue eyed person but about the actual “perfect” person who has so much to share and a story that brings difference instead of what society likes to call “normal.”
The “normal,” society wants is boring so if we want to change this we HAVE to embrace the disability community as a whole. All OF THEM deserve to thrive and live their best possible lives. Us (you and me) able bodied folks have an opportunity to step up for these folks and partner with them to see them rock life along with give us support to live our best lives.
This is what community looks like.
This is what love looks like.
This is a big part of the meaning of life imo.
Folks w/ disabilities are not burdens
Folks w/ disabilities have autonomy
Folks w/ disabilities deserve = rights
Folks w/ disabilities are incredible
Folks w/ disabilities are valid
