When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us.

We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards.
Abled people just don’t get that.

Like if you’ve never seen Crooklyn I need you to get your life together.
