People are well ignorant about disabilities and understandably so, I was as well . There was a program on tv about shop lifters and a security guard saw a man in a wheelchair stand up and walk a couple of paces then sit back down again , he instantly called him a faker and a benefit cheat. After 5 minutes of conversation with the other security guard they came to the conclusion that he may not be permanantly disabled but may have just had an operation. That’s average human logic
People generally think that to be trully disabled you’ve got to be incapable of any movement whatsoever, therefore if you can get in and out of a chair you are a faker and just in their bloody way and you should be apologising for everything even breathing the same air !! Afterall they’ve got to walk round the shop walk to the car park ,walk ,walk, walk and there you are in your power chair with your consessionary parking in there bloody way and they are in a tearing hurry.
None of these people realise yet that being able to walk is a real blessing, they just take it for granted. What their anger should really be directed at is the councils for putting yellow lines everywhere, the cost of everything meaning that aisles in shops are as narrow as possible and the government for feeding them false propergander via their right wing press about so called benefit cheats and people faking disability.
But human nature loves divisions, loves creating a them and us mentalty and loves thinking other’s are getting something they shouldn’t have.
