Note to reader: The following post is ONLY about me talking about myself and my own personal thoughts/feelings about this situation. I don’t speak for anyone other than myself. If you share this please give me credit no ping backs will be accepted for this post.
Dear reader I never wanted to be a “Disability advocate” however that’s what people have been calling people with disabilities who have been talking about Kylie Jenner and her wheelchair photo shoot.
I want to just be known for the things I do as a person. Not as “it’s nice to see someone with a wheelchair doing this”.
I am currently trying to hold back tears as I am writing this post because I am so frustrated about all of the different emotions that this situation is bringing up for me right now.
I decided to make a public post on my FB page talking about my own personal thoughts about the issue which is pretty much what I already wrote on here about it. and told my friends and family to share it because I wanted my feelings to be heard because I personally feel like if I didn’t talk about my feelings about the situation then I would be wasting an opportunity to possibly change a few people’s minds about how they see people with disabilities.
As of right now it has 450 shares. A lot of people have messaged me saying that it wasn’t her fault about the chair.
My personal reply to this is:
She probably didn’t pick out the chair however she still sat down in it as far as I know no one forced her to.
Or why aren’t you offended when people who don’t have disabilities play them on tv/movies? My reply to this is:
I am not personally offended by none disabled people who play disabled characters even though I wish disabled people had first chance to play them and I wish the storylines were better however they are still getting people with disabilities out there especially since some people don’t even know we are out there.
I am thankful to you and this blog dear reader because you guys don’t make me feel “sick” I just feel like a “normal” person talking about my life and the stuff I like.
All of your likes, views, comments, and follows mean the world to me dear reader ♡.
I just want to have my voice not a voice as a “Disability advocate” because my CP(Cerebral Palsy) will NEVER define me as a person.
