Thank you for highlighting ableism. I am disabled also (autistic), and I find that so many people are still so ignorant to ‘non visible’ disabilities. Hopefully with time, things will improve.
So , you are saying the dictionary's definition is wrong , hmmm. I quoted the dictionary's definition as you challenged my own interpretation of the meaning of Ableist , which I believe is in line with the definition given by the dictionary. To be honest and I don't mean to sound rude but you have bored me to submission on this now , I am far from ignorant on this topic and see no need to continue this any further so if you don't mind we are probably best to just leave it there I think. Enjoy the rest of your evening (popcorn) (y)
Actually you know what, I do apologise. I went and thought about it. You're right. I did accuse you of discrimination. Because that's what it is. You assumed someone who is disabled would be less likely to have a day out. That assumption is what I was saying was ableist. So yes you did discriminate with that comment. It was probably unintentional. As I mentioned in the comment you chose to ignore, its something I myself have been guilty of in the past. There are many more examples in this Link, I was trying to use it as a teaching moment but you feel you're being attacked. Choosing to feign ignorance or ignoring what I - a disabled person - am trying to explain is just that. Ignorance.
Well done on reading the first thing Google throws out. Try this Link maybe? It mentions stereotyped thinking, which is exactly what I was referring to.
Ableism is discrimination in favour of non-disabled people , I know exactly what it means ;) . I am sorry I didn't read past the bit when you denied accusing me of discrimination, thought it'd be pretty pointless after reading that (confused)
