This is not my favourite story. A woman parked in a handicap spot at a Tim Hortons in Toronto (bad!) and on her way back to her car gets confronted by a social justice warrior eager to publicly shame her. She gets heated, he says, “what makes you so special” a bunch of times. Neither of these people are my favourite today.
CFOX listeners had their reactions to this story.
And I got this email from a listener.
Hi Jeremy, Please remind your listeners that just because someone “LOOKS” able bodied – DOESN’T mean they ARE! I have something called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome…if you look at me and others that have this, you won’t see an issue. If you know someone with EDS you may not even know of their suffering. EDS is very hard to explain so we don’t like to try to explain the issue very often, basically in easy to understand english, our bodies don’t create COLLAGEN properly – now go look up what parts of the body need collagen to function properly….YUP you are right it’s EVERY FUCKING PART…intestines, joints, ligaments, digestive function, heart function, skin….everything! Commonly we find out we have this because our joints will randomly dislocate, causing immense pain! Please Please Please remind everyone just because you CAN’T SEE AN ISSUE DOESN’T MEAN THERE ISN’T ONE!
