Fun Fact: Just because someone has a wheelchair, doesn’t mean they can’t walk. A lot of people benefit from a wheelchair because they can’t balance well or it is too painful to walk. So if you see a person briefly stand out of their wheelchair, or take a few steps, or even if you see them with a wheelchair sometimes but not always, it doesn’t mean they’re faking, and you shouldn’t call them out on it.
This is basically a post for people who think that the world is accessible for those who are disabled, although this is centred around those who use a wheelchair.
And this doesn’t include when people park in disabled spaces without a badge, or question those who park in disabled spaces who don’t use a chair.
The first picture is of a disabled parking space, where the snow has been pushed into that space whilst people were clearing the car park. This also happens when snow ploughers push the snow to the side of the road and onto the pavement as it blocks the dipped down pavement where wheelchair users can get on/off of the pavement and most wheelchairs struggle to be able to push through the snow.
The second picture is of a lift/elevator in Boots a store in the UK, where there are baskets and cases in front of the lift, which block wheelchair users from using it and accessing other levels in the store.
The third picture is of a zebra crossing with a lowered pavement for wheelchair users, and there is an island in the middle with a normal height curb, which blocks wheelchair users, and it means they have to go around, along with having bollards near the entrance which don’t look wide enough to fit a wheelchair through.
The fourth picture is that of a ramp, which has a step in order to get onto the ramp. (I’m pretty sure they didn’t even try.)
The fifth picture is of a ramp with a tree in the middle, which doesn’t have enough room on either side for a wheelchair to get through.
The sixth picture is of a very very steep ramp, which even if you have someone pushing your chair you probably won’t be able to get up it!
The seventh picture is of a disabled parking space, which has a ramp leading to the entrance, which again has steps in order to access the ramp.
The eighth picture is of ‘disabled parking’, where non of the spaces have room to allow chairs to get out of the car, except at the back. They are just normal spaces where a blue sign has been placed in an attempt to make the parking ‘wheelchair accessible’.
The ninth picture is of a reception desk which is too high for wheelchair users to access, as they can’t be seen, due to the fact that they are smaller than the desk.
The final picture is of a ramp which only goes halfway up the curb, essentially meaning there is a step at the top of the ramp.
If anybody still thinks the world isn’t staked against those who are disabled, then I honestly worry about you.
I FIND SUCH ENORMOUS JOY IN MINIATURE THINGS
