#AccessibilityforAbleds is a weird hashtag. If they were "Able" then they wouldn't need accommodating. Why is it so wrong to say people are suffering from DISABILITY and need a little extra help to participate in society?
As someone who chaired the Accessibility Advisory Committee in our community, I think this virtual signalling nonsense needs to stop. Call a spade a spade.
I have glasses, which are considered a disability, and I don't care if you call it that. My glasses limit me in ways that people with perfect sight are not limited. It's not about treating someone differently it's about providing the services and means for them not to be seen as different. Calling them "abled" not only sounds ridiculous but doesn't point out the problem. Acknowledging "disability," tells people it is a part of our society that needs help. Telling everyone you are "abled" says you don't need any help to fill in any gaps created by your disability.
I swear if liberals spent as much time on resolving issues as they do on finding new names for them we'd have cured half the things that ail Canadians in just 4 years.
