Crazy Legs Episode 5: The “situation” Situation
WARNING: Language is rated R in this post
Okay. I have been waiting WAY too long to post this.
So I have a friend through track who is a TOTAL BOMBSHELL BABE. Like, think Jessica Rabbit but with a better tan and an Aussie accent. She also uses a wheelchair and has like… her entire life.
She has some incredible exchanges she shares with her social media following and let’s just follow along how WEIRDLY ENTITLED complete strangers are to people who have disabilities.
Alright- pretty run of the mill dude online just being the worst… this particular day though got REAL good.
lolol @ people trying to talk about someone else’s disability but being like “I’M COOL WITH IT” more like they are convincing themselves… This is one of my absolute least favorite interactions- ESPECIALLY with men. I’ve noticed a trend with insecure men/women/people who bring up MY disability then talk about how cool they are like as a really weird passive aggressive way to remind me that most people look at me as someone who “suffers” from something but they acknowledge at the same time the incredible mystery that we also can function in society almost like the “normal folk…”
Just for future reference everyone- this kind of comment is NOT in fact a compliment no matter how much you try to convince yourself it is.
As you can see, homegirl feels the same way I do…
YASSSS QUEEN CLAP FOR YOUR DAMN SELF
PS knowing someone at one point of time who have any sort of physical disability *also* doesn’t qualify you to be entitled to anyone else’s…uhhh… “situation.”
It is the best of times and it is the worst of times….
Anyone have weird experiences online or in person like this? Please share!!
