Response to Ms. Toad (Original post)

25. Please don't go. People with disabilites are not "others".

I have a child who has ASD, ADHD, SPD, and anxiety. For years I was always worried about her melting down in public. Then I realized I have to deal with neurotypical adults with no disabilities who are often loud or rude or drunk in public.

My child has every right to be in spaces where other humans are allowed. So do you, Ms. Toad. And I'll die on that hill.
