Disability rights

Disabled people campaigning for rights - for access, benefits, services and equality; against discrimination, cuts, prejudice and pity!

Pedestal Nor Pity

I am not "inspirational"
I need neither pedestal nor pity
Why put barriers in my path
Then call me "inspirational" for getting over them?
I am your equal not your mascot
I want rights not awards
I am not "inspirational"
I am disabled
By crap like this.
