Let me tell you a story:
non-disabled people: I've never met you before; can you have sex?
non-disabled people: But how do you have sex? Will you draw me a diagram?
non-disabled people: Wow you're so gross and unusual, I think I'll post your picture on facebook without your permission, and people will admire me for being a Good Person
non-disabled people: Here, let me touch you and violate your personal space without permission.
non-disabled people: Do you need help? No? Ok let me help you.
non-disabled people: Differently Abled
non-disabled people: "The only disability in life is a bad attitude"
non-disabled people: I'm taking disability studies this year. Let me tell you all about disability, and how you should feel about it.
non-disabled people: Disabled people should not want to have sex, because it offends me on a personal level and I believe that I have the right to dictate what other people do with their lives.
non-disabled people: But I have a disabled friend
non-disabled people: But I have a disabled child (...that I'm probably abusing)
non-disabled people: Disabled people are not productive members of society; they don't have a right to live.
non-disabled people: I broke my foot once, I understand.
non-disabled people: If I were you, I would want to be dead. You're so inspiring.
non-disabled people: Why are you so angry all the time?
non-disabled people: Why do you have a crowbar?

Why do I hear this like a broken record every holiday? ...
