Being the only disabled person in a meeting and hearing someone disparage accessibility is... really hard. After enough times, you can read between the lines. So many dog whistles about how "few people" need these accommodations. About "it's too much work." I'm just sad.

Having to decide between outting myself as one of "those people" or staying quiet and safer always sucks, especially when I'm the accessibility person in the room. I'm always worried that if people know I care about this because of my own experiences, they'll write it off.
