I’m working on another grant application for my local Independent Living Center, so my posting may be light this week. For today, I just want to share a priceless little post by one of my favorite Tumblr bloggers, wheeliewifee. She’s responding to someone who asked about who should or shouldn’t use accessible bathroom stalls:
"The accessible bathroom question has a very simple answer and I think that’s why I get so impatient with receiving it over and over: If you need it, use it. If you don’t need it, stay out.
I’m not a doctor. I have no idea whether a person [is] capable of shitting in a regular stall. So people need to have a conscience, be a grown up, and figure it out for themselves!”
Sometimes it’s a relief when someone just cuts to the chase. I mean, a lot of these disability issues aren’t that complicated folks, and frankly, some of us who have disabilities are the ones that make them more complicated than they need to be.
