Stories of Ablism

Clicking_FrenzyClicking_Frenzy Member Posts: 38 ✭✭
So I was going to a diner and I passed by a man who, instead of opening the door for me, said I was an able bodied woman who could do it her self.

Now, while we all know women have right, what he completely ignored was my physical disability. I had a hurt wrist that was clearly damaged by the bruising (some of it is even purple). So the able bodied man insulted me and waved his wrist privilege in my face.

Share your stories of ablism, and comment on my story. Need the emotional support. *hugs* <3

    That doesn't seem that bad, really.

    To be honest, I'm more offended that he didn't hold the door for someone. This isn't anything about Ablism, but just that man being a jerk.

    Even if they're a troll, they wrote this well. I'm giving a legitimate answer to a thought-out story.

    Oh, wow, like, first I'm a woman and second that was really uncalled for.

    I just wanted to share my story with a new crowd. Sorry for not being neurotypical.

    It's alright. We're just been having problems with trolls recently, that's why everyone's a bit unnerved at potential trolls.

    A bruised hand isn't much of an injury, but that guy was a jerk for not doing what he was politely asked to do.

    I wouldn't credit it as even being well written.

    "She" claims the man discriminated against "her" disabled wrist, when in fact he told "her" explicitly that he thought "her" to be "able-bodied", if he knew "her" wrist status, he clearly would have opened the door.

    What's wrong with being a woman.

    He was being ablist because even though he saw my wrist he refused to open the door. He denounced my disability, thus ablism.

    He knew, and you should know. Please don't be ablist. This is a thread to share experiences in, not hate.

    And this person is one. He's currently laughing at you for appearing to believe his ridiculous story.

    It's He_Stands_There because of the tags "gardevoir" and "what's a tumblr?".

    Ha! You're wrong and the proof is in my profile.

    I'm clearly female while HE_Stands_There must be male.

    Also, how does this relate to ablism? Totally off-topic.

    On Topic: Did you know almost no one I met gave a shit about my physical disability?

    It's probably a glitch. Way to support the patriarchy by making me into a guy when I'm clearly a woman.

    how much of a woman are you?
    What is life? Is it nothing more than the endless search for a cutie mark? And what is a cutie mark but a constant reminder that we're all only one bugbear attack away from oblivion? And what of the poor gator? Flank forever blank, destined to an existential swim down the river of life to... an unknowable destiny?
