I read your response last night and purposely sat with it.

I see you.

I believe you when you say there is erasure of varying abilities (and its many intersections with gender and race) on a massive, massive scale.

I hear you when you say people don’t have the courage to see you as their equal, and can only muster sacchariney sympathy to feel “good” about themselves.

I appreciate the rawness and vulnerability of what you shared, it made me feel less alone in my rage and exhaustion fighting to be seen.

You matter. 💜
