Disabled people are around a fifth of the world’s population. The onus is not on us to prove that we are disabled. Nor is it on us to justify why we are not behaving as if we are able-bodied. It is on able-bodied people to accept that we exist, and that we have the right to go out in public without being interrogated.

With regard to the notorious Kanye West events this weekend. Also note that I took out an ableist slur in the headline and am baffled as to why a disability organization would use a slur like that.
