Disability Is Not a Bad Word

Reading now: 120

Disability is not a bad word. Able-bodied people are afraid of being offensive by calling people with disabilities “disabled,” so instead, they call us “differently-abled,” “special needs,” “handicapped,” “handicapable,” and more.

Each disabled individual has a preference of how they want to identify and what they would prefer people to refer to them as, but many if not most choose to identify as disabled.

People need to start teaching their kids to not avoid or be scared of people with disabilities because it sets a bad example.
