The world of action items that stop human sex trafficking is just through this doorway... Let's get ahead of common communications errors & increase collective understanding.
Our colleague Azine shared this response, which I am adding here with her permission:
"What are some examples of mistaken determinations, in your experience?
Have you experienced others’ mistaken determinations about your own functions or intentions?"
mine is that my mobility aids are too unconventional, too cumbersome, too impossible for my too injured body
ditto on my housing needs, that those are asking too much, that they are for rich people (in health and wealth), rich people their hobby
tiny house on wheels nice for a big backyard or for a big car
"horses are too groom or for sports, you want them instead of wheelchair???" "ableds" cant compute
my housing needs in a stationary house, that those are asking too much, that they are for rich people (in health and wealth), rich people their hobby, to have a vacation house in nature
houses I can tolerate often cost 2000-3000 usd monthly even in Africa, based on the assumption these are Vacation houses
people may call this gentrification but its sooo far beyond that
its a special type of colonization really
the idea people with health and wealth can pollute use toxins everywhere
rack up salary with that
then buy house and renovate using toxic materials
in their "weekend getaway house in nature"
well I was LIVING here, as are others
this is top of the ice berg
wsh could say more but im tortured the shit out off and daily my bones are broken
and im kept in place by these assumptions
need understanding, listening, funding, etc
