a ride at Alton Towers, they pay for the pity ride. Handing over
the money, they demand full value in the pity stakes. They feel
free to judge, to condemn the others' life and expect their judging,
their pitying, will be applauded, will be welcomed.
From childhood I've had my life judged and condemned as being pointless,
as if, when I found myself having a disease, I fell into my own
grave, my own death. Whatever pityers say to justify this judging,
explaining other meanings, it's destroying judgment of our lives,
damaging abuse when it's directed at children, putting our whole
lives in jeopardy.
For ME to be angry about my life or, on occasions, say, 'it's terrible'
or 'I hate the pain,' that's part of MY life process. When non-disabled
pityers do the same, about mine or anybody else's life, that's judging
from ignorance and inexperience. It's a sign of the inadequacy of
non-disabled people, who are too afraid to occupy heir own bodies,
their own lives and tackle the problems they find there. So, to
indulge and distract themselves, they make free with our dignity,
our lives, throwing their pity around - their, 'how terrible' and
'what a shame.'
We need STATUTORY (HUMAN) RIGHTS, then we won't have to pay for
poverty resources with condemned lives, disabled by futility.
