Today I flew across the country. Setup for this story: I took just my walker because my wheelchair is huge and does not fold and I am saving up for a folding electric scooter but money, etc. So I am VERY SLOW.
So I’m in line doing the whole security thing, balancing all my stuff including my heavy laptop bag, pushing my walker through, holding my shoes, trying to heave one of those bins over, take off my hoodie… you know, this stuff isn’t easy for able-bodied people, so just a bit more difficult while trying it with no strength or air and using mobility aids.
So I’m struggling to balance and get my hoodie off while holding onto my walker with one hand. Admittedly not doing a quick job of it. When suddenly I feel someone behind me in line **grab my hoodie and start pulling it off of me**.
I spin around and this stranger is undressing me. Without asking, without prompting.
I did not “help” her help me, I kind of pulled my arm back and then put my now-stuck-on-one-arm hoodie into the bin, maybe looking a little wild-eyed, and started half-tossing random things into the bins. She laughed and said, “Oh, I wasn’t very good at helping there, was I?” Then she pointed out I’d dropped my ID.
At this point, one of the TSA agents came over and very nicely started assisting, *asking first before every change*, rearranging my bins so that my huge pile of meds weren’t on top of my laptop, asking if I could walk a short distance without my walker, offering me one of their canes instead, etc., the usual. (For the record I’ve not had trouble with security due to my mobility aids — due to art supplies looking suspicious, yes, but not due to my mobility aids, haha.)
But yeah. I had to get rescued by a TSA agent from what felt like a violation of my person. How’s that for a twist? -_-
Don’t grab a disabled person’s clothes and start undressing them, even if they seem to have trouble getting them off.
Ask before touching people. Ask before touching a disabled person’s mobility aids or medical equipment.
Ask before undressing people.
Ask before helping disabled people and make sure your help is wanted and it’s the kind of help that would be actually helpful. Even if we’re slowing down the damn security line.
WHAT. THE. HELL.
The beginning and the end.
This is not—and will never be in any universe—okay.
omg what if all of the weapons in the lord of the rings were replaced with pool noodles

For structures that have no entry steps, ConvertaStep also makes ramps of three sizes that come in a manual as well as automatic version.
This welcome mat converts into a fully accessible wheelchair ramp. Beautiful and functional design. I want it.
Some more info, for people who are interested.
First of all, I can’t believe this has almost 3,000 notes. I’m so glad that people are sharing this - both as a cool design, and also as an important accessibility feature.
Thanks to pseudosoph for linking to additional info (above) regarding weight limits, lift height, and product background — the creator is a wheelchair user himself! Very cool stuff. Keep sharing!
Designer Goula Figeura’s Orwell day bed lets you easily shut yourself off from the outside world with its light and noise-cancelling curtains.
I have a MIGHTY NEED.

…Can I have it in a queen size? Because that would make it about perfect. I’ve dreamed of bed-cupboards ever since I was introduced to the concept.
