Access

How do you deal with access issues? What makes something accessible? Access is incredibly important to the disabled community. Not because we are being difficult but because everyone deserves access as a basic right.

    EVER WISHED THAT YOU COULD HAVE A CHRONIC ILLNESS FAIRY GODMOTHER?

    WHY IS ACCESSIBILITY ALWAYS LEFT TO THOSE THAT DON’T HAVE THE ENERGY TO DO IT???

    If you haven’t been watching my stories you won’t yet of seen caption gate. While making my first IGTV video I came up against issues that those from the disabled community always face. Access it seems is something only we care about and massive companies couldn’t give a flying fuck which means that all the labor falls on people who really don’t have the energy for it.
