The Americans with disabilities act for Dummies

I was recently contacted by a woman who was being blocked from using a facebook based forum for the popular game tap fish the page is called TAPFISHER. She was being ultimately blocked because when she like every other member was putting up her member profile and intro she identified herself as disabled ,upon submitting her information to the moderator for approval all reference t any form of disability was removed. When the woman asked why she was told and I quote”I’m sick and tired of you people playing the disability card no one on here wants to see it and I won’t allow it”.

I wrote a story about the incident and also the fact that the woman who’s disability makes typing difficult tried to post on the wall an exclamation to other members that her typos were unavoidable she was finally blocked from posting because the flaming and hate based insults flew freely and the moderator not only didn’t moderate she joined in.

The day I posted the supreme court of Massachusetts handed down a relevant decision that any public forum was covered by the ADA and was in breach of federal law for the very actions described above.

So since then I am being flamed by the mindless trogs, who thought because they won with my disabled friend I was an easy target?

Some people are assumptive aren’t they, well to the cave dwelling red necked members of the above forum  1/  Facebook is not private it is now publically traded which makes it public domain which brings it under federal law

2/ you do not own you’re group you are simply a user on Mr. zuckerbergs little Foley

3/ hate based speech based upon disability perceived or real is a Jailable offence.

4/ so next time you write calling me another disabled woman an idiot (FYI the use of that term to someone who is disabled qualifies as another act of hate based speech) I suggest YOU consult a lawyer.

In closing, to all my readers these little trogs would be amusing if we could have them debarked but alas in this great nation a great constitution supports there barely upright supporting IQ. So let’s band together and put them back under their rocks.

A downloadable version of the ADA and 1800 hotline number are listed below next time they open their degenerate hate filled mouths lets fill it with federal law.

This is the contact number for the ADA

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
