Disabilities staring

This graphic op-ed by A. Andrews in the Washington Post is a perspective on how he feels as a visibly disabled person. It seems extremely pertinent to the way our loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities might sometimes feel out in the community.

Andrews writes, “It’s the way others see me and my disabled body that is hardest for me to accept. When I looked past the eyes and down the halls of disability history, I saw reflections of my experience as an object of public fascination, and I wanted to examine this precedent to reflect on the implications of staring in our day-to-day lives.”
