133For people with time on their hands, or a big investment in the twittersphere [if you don’t know, don’t read on], should check out the hashtag #heardwhiledisabled.

It lists tweets from disabled people about what non-disabled people have said to them regarding their impairment.

Its often funny and sometimes downright annoying. It is also a disturbing window into the minds of some of our less aware citizens.

Here’s a short selection:

“What did you do to yourself?”

“You’re just not trying, stop making excuses !”

‘you don’t look disabled some people are in right states’

“you should smile more”

so what is actually wrong with you?!
