“You’re too pretty/funny/smart/young to be on a wheelchair.”
It’s silly of you to expect that I can’t be all of that, just because I am on a wheelchair.
“If I were in your place, I wouldn’t have been able to do anything!”
What you’re implying here is that having a disability makes one unworthy and incapable of doing anything, right?
“You’re not disabled! You’re differently-abled!”
Aww, how cute of you to disregard my identity because it makes you uncomfortable🥰
“So what you can’t walk? You can see, hear, speak!”
OMG PLEASE JUST STOP WITH THIS ONE ALREADY.
“You’re so lucky! All you have to do is sit all day, right? Sounds so fun!”
Haha, no. Do you know the number of times my body gets spastic, my legs become stiff? The high chances of me getting bed soles? The back, neck, shoulder aches?
“WOAH, I would have never guessed that you’re disabled, had I not seen your pictures in a wheelchair!”
I still need to understand how is this even near a compliment?!
