Anyone who is against accommodations for disabilities should be prohibited from using anything that some people don’t need.
This includes calculators, because some people can do math in their head.
This includes alarm clocks, because some people can wake up at a set time without them.
This includes clocks, because some people can tell time by the position of the sun.
This includes instruction manuals, because some people already know how to use it.
This includes stairs, because some people can climb a rope to the next floor.
If you’re against accommodations, you shouldn’t use any accommodations either, even if your accommodations are commonly used and are for something that it’s socially acceptable to be unable to do.
Seriously, to the professors and fellow students who make comments about my disability accommodations: FUCK OFF
I’m fed up of being asked why I don’t do exams with my class, and why I sit away from people. It’s especially difficult if you have an “invisible” disability, because then people think you’re just stupid or lazy.
Yup. I’m sorry if I don’t “look disabled”, or my favorite comment, “act disabled”. I can’t take tests with the rest of the class. I have to sit with my back to a wall. And I can’t handwrite my notes. I have to live alone.
I’m sorry if these are strange to you and you can’t see “what is wrong” with me, but I need these to function. So fuck off.
