Heeeey... I just saw this post...
My sister was born with one hand and I relate to this a whole lot. I forget that she has one hand quite a lot.
I Believe that one of the best things someone can do when meeting someone with a disability is to simply treat them like you would treat anyone else, we need to remember that we are not worth less because of something we have no control over and showing that to each other is one of the best things you could do on a daily basis
I really hope that was the case when I accidentally walked in front of a blind person with a cane at Disneyland. I have been cringing at myself for it ever since, oh god.
I walked straight into a blind guy on the sidewalk. I said, "Sorry, I didn't see you."

I wonder what the reddiquite is for showing usernames in posts where you're trying to highlight good things they said/did?
I'd guess it's probably okay to do, but I'd understand if the people running the site/sub were still worried about brigading and harassment because some people will disagree about what's considered a "good thing".
Haha, I just had that mental dilemma myself!
Thanks mate. You're a champ!
Is this your comment. I didn’t get the name in the screenshot
I have a good friend who sits in a wheelchair. Spastic. Can barely hold his own drink. Can't walk, piss or shower on his own. Doesn't change the fact that he is a great guy. We're friends for at least 16 years now, went on numerous festivals together etc. People come to me to tell me that I'm a nice person for taking care of a disabled person. Fuck that. I'm taking care of a friend.
I’m always confused when people tell me I’m great for hanging out with my friend who happens to have cerebral palsy. She’s not a fuckin charity case, I’m out with her because I like her. We’re out shopping, not performing miracles.
Yes!! So much yes! I have 2 kiddos with epilepsy and I constantly hear "you're so amazing taking care of those kids. I don't know how you do it." They are my fucking kids! Of course I'm going to take care of them and love them and treat them exactly as I do my other kiddo who doesn't have epilepsy! It's not fucking hard. You just love them and provide for them and ensure that they are functioning members of society. I'm not going to cripple their damn minds just because they have a "disability". To me they are normal, hilariously frustrating little monsters and they will never be a "burden". EVER. -Whew! Okay! Rant over.
Can relate. One of my best friends was born with malformed hands (not enough usable fingers) and I hardly ever notice that. She once made a joke that she'd suck at playing the guitar. We stared at her blankly not knowing what she was talking about, until she waved her hands at our faces saying "I don't have fingers! Get it?!"
Lols I’m a proper dick to my wheelchair bound mate with dwarfism ( for laughs I’m a bro too) and I always get the “ you can’t say that” from ppl The fuck I can’t he’s one of the boys as much as anyone
It reminds me of this autistic kid in high school. He wanted to play cards with us and we said no, it's a private group and then every teachers who taught these kids came to our table with the principal and told us to treat him just like any other kid but that's exactly what we did. They looked at our table full of my family (it was mainly me and my cousins) and understood we were just super anti social.
The real reason though, was because we were gambling with money and that's illegal. That autistic kid did not have a dime on him, sorry Jean.
People who doesn't show off their scars are the most vulnerable, they are just trying to look confident.
So it’s ok because you physically abuse all of your friends. Nice!
How the fuck is this trending on wholesome memes when it’s about violently hurting your friends? I don’t care who your friend is, violence is never wholesome.
We never violently hurt him or eachother. He would always start it! He would smack us or do something stupid like grab our books and run so we would give it back to him. If he wanted to, he could have taken us all in one go, don't worry. He is extremely powerful. I don't think it's possible to explain how the group dynamics were, you just need to experience it. I remember I got really upset because our school was going to give him a "special lift" because going up the stairs was a hassel for him. I was 11 at the time and couldnt understand why he got special treatment and we didn't lol I mean, that's how blinded we were to his 'disability'. He is a lot more successful than the rest of us so chill. He is fine. He is happy.
