Our mayor says “the disabled shouldn’t catch cabs they are slow and they get in the way and the driver doesn’t make tips”
The American hoteliers association says “we shouldn’t be forced to be accessible in our pool areas the disabled make mess and smell”
Teacher after teacher school after school, tell parents “why put up with such a hard life give the child away get on with your life”
In short they think were helpless hopeless and unable to anything that doesn’t require a blue sheet and a mop.
I have amputee friends and many have told me they are sick of the weird fascination with their missing limbs, I recently found out there are screwed up perverts who get off on sexual fantasies about amputees instead of simply liking the person for the person they are.
Get over yourself abelists, we can out think out live out work out dream and out build those dreams into reality twice as good as any one of you on our worst days because we have to. We have learned from society’s disdain that the only people who we can trust to be there when it counts, is the person casting our shadow and the ones we wake up to every day who have stayed the haul.
Well check out this pic folks no it’s not CGI and there is no blue screen, this is what we the NYC adaptive climbing community in conjunction with outward bound call Saturday

We’ll be the one causing a mass of WTF’S between 4pm and 8pm at outward bounds New York headquarters today on northern boulevard Long Island city. Yes that is a amputee on the wall and yes that empty wheelchair belongs to the big woman at the top, and the thin dude concentrating as he climbs the wall without fear like a spider is blind . But don’t be frightened we won’t judge you, and after this maybe you the able bodied world will judge us just that little bit less. See you at the top
