Kid me: Why is that rude?

What I meant: Tell me what’s rude about this so I can avoid saying other rude things.

What people seemed to hear: I refuse to acknowledge I said anything rude. Fuck you and your whole family.

In the US, a person’s wheelchair is viewed legally as an extension of their body.

1. If you touch someone’s wheelchair without their consent, that is Assault. In some states, this is automatically Aggravated Assault because the assault has been committed against a disabled person.

2. If you grab a someone’s moving wheelchair to stop it, lean on their wheelchair making it jolt or tilt, climb over their wheelchair to get past it, or move their wheelchair because you think it’s in your way, you are risking injury to an obviously medically fragile person and that is Reckless Endangerment.

3. If you grab or hold onto a wheelchair, block it or in any other way prevent the person from leaving, that is Unlawful Detention or Unlawful Restraint.

4. If you start pushing a person’s wheelchair without their explicit consent, that is Abduction.

This is not a moral philosophy or an opinion. These are legal definitions. If you do any of these things, you are committing a crime for which you can be prosecuted and do jail time, and you will have a criminal record which will follow you for the rest of your life.

These same laws are applied in the same way to any mobility device including canes, walkers, and scooters. If you kick someone’s cane, grab their walker, pull on the handlebars of their scooter or in any other way touch or manhandle someone’s mobility device you are committing a crime for which you can be prosecuted and go to prison.

Hi yes please respect disabled people and wheelchair users and do not violate their bodily autonomy (and they DO view the chair as part of themselves), do not touch them without asking and if you bother anyone about whether they should really be in a wheelchair or if they’re just faking you’re the worst kind of person and I will try to kill you with knives

What if you brush their wheelchair like on accident

And they call the cops on you

What do you do

What if you brush up against an Abled person by accident. And they call the cops on you. What do you do.

Literally WTF are you talking about.

When is the last time you saw a minority call the cops unless they absolutely had to? Did you know that 50% of the victims of extra-judicial killings by cops are disabled people? But sure, sure, we’re totally gonna call the cops on ourselves if you accidentally brush up against us.

But let’s derail the whole conversation about disability rights into some completely irrelevant “what if” where the disabled person is the aggressor and your ass is the victim.

So anyway go fuck yourself.

Disabled people literally wanting to be treated like people is seen as special treatment and is met with “what if” situations.

All of the situations listed involve disabled people being treated like people, with the assistive device being treated like extensions of themselves. In the “what if” example, if you brush against a wheelchair by accident, it’s exactly like brushing against a person by accident.
