Response to SlogginThroughIt (Reply #77)

Wed Aug 14, 2019, 06:34 PM

86. I'm not generalizing - I'm asking.

The responses in that thread, frankly, shocked me. And it shocked me even more that there was not a single WTF response after two individuals flat out said that my adult friend with CP did not belong in a sit-down restaurant if he could not keep quiet. The third response was, at least more measured - he didn't belong in a movie or other theater if he couldn't keep quiet.

The thread was on the front page for at least two separate time periods, including one after my responses to the first two offensive posts popped it back up (which garnered a third less offensive, but still offensive post) - and not a single response supporting the right of adults with disabilities to be present in whatever place of public accommodations they choose to enjoy (let alone the kid's rights).

I'm not sure what to make of that - other than to wonder if DU is compatible with my values any more. So I started a separte thread - sort of my own WTF thread just to see if that thread was an aberration, or an indication DU has left me - and it's time to acknowledge it and move on.

The responses in this thread raise a different kind of concern - a significant chunk of people advocating for either adults or children with disabilities who are too battered by the typical DU response to even speak up any more. Which is kind of where I am with LGBT issues.
