How Filmmakers Get Disability Wrong

My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I struggle more than most people because of a condition I have called Spina Bifida. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for many years which makes disabled people face all kinds of discrimination. My hope is to help you better understand what it means to be disabled and what it is not.

    I think so many filmmakers see disability as a dreadful burden instead of a fact of life. My young adult sister has Down syndrome. We don’t cry over it every day. We have fun, chat, (sometimes) get mad at each other, and live ordinary lives. I love her just the way she is, because how could anyone not?

    I wish more movies showed the reality of that!

    Great post. It’s important for disability to be portrayed more accurately for the world to view us as equals and not feel awkward or different.
