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 mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.
We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards.
A jury has found Michael Dunn guilty of first-degree murder for the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in 2012.
