Disabled

Disabled is not a bad word. Disability is neutral; it's not bad or good, it's just a part of life. It's not a choice. Treating it as if it is shameful or bad is ableism. The problem is that disabled people are not included in society. We're not included in plans for spaces or communities. We're not included in having our basic needs met and our voices heard.
