Wot she said...

"Because I Are One"

"Laying your hands on me without invitation, strangers, sure isn’t going to speed me up any, but it may well piss me right the fuck off. With some of my friends with certain disabilities, an unexpected assault may tip them completely over."

Dear ABs, please read, mark and inwardly digest this post (and everything else written about disability at Hoyden About Town). The world does NOT revolve around you.

This includes drivers who park their cars across the fucking footpath. Do I plonk my scooter in the middle of the road and wander off and leave it there? No. So stop parking illegally and putting me in danger.

(Wow, it has been a very long time since I posted here, completely forgot how to post links...)

I agree with you and your linked author. Instinct would cause me to punch/kick/grapple whoever randomly touched me.

As for douche bags in automobiles, don't get me started.
