I can't make up stories as bizarre as what happens in real life.
Here are three examples ... point by point:
Inclusion Doesn't mean YOU!
1) I get asked to do an interview on 'inclusion' as part of a series being done on 'inclusion' and 'self advocacy.'
2) I agree
3) I am told, 'oops' the radio station isn't accessible.
4) We talk about options, telephone interview, taped interview.
5) Radio station nixes all options and I am dropped as a participant in the series.
Yep, I was excluded from a series on inclusion because of inaccessibility.
You can't make this shit up!!
I Need Counselling Just So I Don't Throttle You
1) I save up a bunch of posts to post on the week which includes World Down Syndrome Day.
2) The two posts which lead up to 'the' day lay down, clearly, my view that people with disabilities, generally, and people with Down Syndrome specifically are part of the tapestry of diversity.
3) The first comment on World Down Syndrome Day advocates reducing the incidence of Down Syndrome through 'proper counselling'.
You really, really can't make this shit up!!!
A Locked Front Door Is Just Good Business, Mate!
1) Joe and I decide to go out for a beer after work.
2) We go to one of very, very, few accessible gay bars.
3) They have their patio open so people are going in and out through the patio entrance, so they've locked the main door - which is accessible and which is right beside the patio.
4) People, who are not yet drunk but are happily journeying there, try to convince me that my chair can go over the step.
5) I get in but all are annoyed that the front door has to be unlocked.
Nope, I am not as creative as life seems to be ... is my life a skit ...
