Meanwhile in "faker rhetoric fuels abuse" news...

Two tweets and one news article from this morning alone:

Young disabled stay silent over hate crimes - Crime - UK - The Independent including case study of one woman who was grabbed by the hair for having not "looked disabled" in her school days. Which would imply that her attackers presumed that she was faking now.


  1. Disabled man deliberately targetted for robbery:

    Paralysed man's carer kidnapped and forced to let burglars into his house at gun and knife point.

    This man was paralysed from the neck down after being attacked by racists 16 years ago.

    They stole cash and his wife's engagement ring. She died from cancer 11 years ago.

  2. Just seen this post. Appreciate it being shared. Wish it wasn't happening to any of us. xx
