Please let me be ordinary
We all got to be supercrips now, or we're no good. Lost your legs? Better get some prosthetics and climb Mount Everest. Not allowed to be an ordinary person with a disability. Oh, no, we've got to be "inspirational", or else we're horrible tragedies. Can't just put on our pants one leg at a time. Can't mess up, or we're failures; can't succeed without being inspirational. Can't be people, oh no, because, y'see, we're not quite human. If we're allowed to be everyday people, then the world has to accept that disability is a real thing that is part of some people's ordinary everyday life, and then they'd have to stop distancing themselves from it as though it were contagious. Bunch of cowards, really.
