The Curb Cut Effect, or Why It Is Basically Impossible To Appropriate From Disabled People

The Curb Cut Effect, or Why It Is Basically Impossible To Appropriate From Disabled People.

This is an important read, though there are a few instances where it’s not true. Sign language has some things in it that can be appropriated, but as I’m not someone who knows sign language nor am I deaf or hard of hearing (in any way that has been noticeable in my day-to-day interaction with others).

But for the most part, as far as I’m aware, this is accurate. Or it’s at least accurate for far more things than people are aware.
