Stella Jane Young was an Australian comedian, journalist and disability advocate... (wikipedia)
From my first days in Washington D.C., where I rolled a whole four downtown blocks without seeing a single shop, cafe, bar or restaurant I could not access, to the beautifully accessible buses in New York City, I was in heaven.
The killing of a disabled person is not 'compassionate'. It is not 'euthanasia'. It is murder.
Apologies are great, but they don't really change anything. You know what does? Action.
In Australia, a deaf person attending an interview must take their own interpreter at their own expense, or ask the employer to provide one. Believe me, nothing says 'I'm the best person for this job' quite like asking an employer to pay to interview you.
The thing about living with any disability is that you adapt; you do what works for you.
