On facebook at the moment, there is a 'lovely' meme about how people who have things wrong with them don't REALLY want a cure, or even better treatment or for people to understand how these things get caused. Nope. We just want 'acceptance'. Right, because that doesn't mean that we should be happy with 'accepting' what's wrong with us and not looking for a cure, or better treatment, or a cause, or anything else. Acceptance just means 'shut up and take it so the rest of us normal folk can sit back and pretend we're doing something about your condition. By ACCEPTING it.'

So far, it's only able-bodied and minded people that I know been posting it. I've replied to every single post telling them that it's lazy look-the-other-way bullshit and yes, I WANT a cure for my autism and my depression and my PTSD and my blue/green colourblindness and my asthma and my shortsightedness and my as yet unidentified tendon issues and ALL THE OTHER FUCKING THINGS THAT DISABLE ME DAY TO DAY. I don't want to just shrug and accept them and be all 'well, that's my lot. Better quit complaining and accept that it's always gonna be like this...'
