Disability: Intellectual Disabilities

Even if vaccines did cause autism, I would still vax my child. Like, yeah, we can talk about how it's infactual [sic] that vaccines cause autism, but let's also talk about how deep the hatred for autistic people goes that people would rather have a dead or sick child than an autistic one.  ~ @archivistwasp  I love everything about this tweet, including the implicit suggestion English speakers adopt "infactual" as a word.

Should people with learning disabilities be allowed to work for less than the minimum wage?   ~ @Emmabarnett  Alternate phrasing of this question: should employers be allowed to exploit some of society's most vulnerable people?  ~ @stavvers

Ableism is a form of discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities. It may also be referred to as disability discrimination, physicalism, handicapism, and disability oppression. It is also sometimes known as disablism, although there is some dispute as to whether ableism and disablism are synonymous, and some people within disability rights circles find the latter term's use inaccurate. Discrimination faced by those who have or are perceived to have a mental disorder is…

US Americans will be like "this building doesn't need to [be] ADA accessible because it was grandfathered in, in order to preserve the history and integrity of the eighty-year-old landmark architecture."

I really admire the design for these stairs and how they incorporate a wheelchair access ramp. In a world where barrier free design is essential to living a full and happy life, its amazing to see landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander has taken literal steps to design stairs AROUND a ramp, instead of the other way around.  ~ @define-space

"Locking your wheelchair lift and requiring disabled people to find an employee to unlock AND OPERATE it is a direct violation of the ADA.  'The [ADA] Standards require ‘unassisted’ entry and exit from lifts (§410.1). Situations in which platform lifts are locked and require users to request or retrieve a key for operation will not satisfy this requirement for independent operation.'  ~ @cripplepunkdesigns
