On disability and unintended, dehumanizing ableism behind some common compliments and advice.

I am not here to inspire you.


@sophia Thank you for sharing this. I found it a very interesting read. I think when I was teenager I probably participated on some of these "well meaning" behaviors. I learned in college that any time you meet someone that is "different" in some way the most well meaning thing you can do is just treat that person as a person. I think most of us just want to be a person, not defined by something about us that society has decided as exotic or novel.
