Since writing for the Huffington Post, I had quite a number of trolls make abusive personal comments about myself from people I have never met but who believe they know everything about me from the myths that have been created about me. It has to make me wonder that if they actually met we in person, would they actually dare say any of these insults and lies to my face?
My volunteer reckons they would say they would, but he acknowledges that they would probably not have the courage to go through with it, while I know I am very consistent in what I say. I think when they realise how fully significant my impairment is, compared to their scale of what impairment is, they will be too shocked for much else. I think it will be hard for them to look at me without that face of pity and for me to challenge their understanding of disability issues.
And I indeed dare anyone to arrange to meet me and I would find it interesting as I sure have a lot of questions for them, which I am sure they will be unable to answer.
