This is perhaps one of the most poignant and accurate statements I’ve heard about disability rights in a long time. For decades, disability civil rights activists like Judy Heumann had to protest, perform sit-ins, and fight tooth-and-nail just to have accessible bathrooms. Having access to a public restroom shouldn’t be up for negotiation. It’s a basic human right that every able-bodied person enjoys without thinking twice. In fact, we’re so privileged with access to bathrooms that we throw a hissy fit every time a restaurant insists their bathrooms are for “customers only.” And yet, we continue to treat people with physical disabilities as second class citizens, and nuisances that need to be “dealt with.” ✨ It’s time we treat people with all disabilities with equal rights, no matter how “inconvenient” it may be for us. If you can’t afford to build a wheelchair-accessible restroom, a ramp, and an elevator then you can’t afford to have an establishment. Period. ✨ On a side note, this quote comes from the Netflix documentary “Crip Camp.” If you haven’t watched it yet, we highly recommend you put it at the top of your list. Our review is in the link in our bio. 🔗 https://www.instagram.com/p/B_ctJ51n9-A/?igshid=qgyt5dsrxg68: This is perhaps one of the most poignant and accurate statements I’ve heard about disability rights in a long time.
