*goes to Target and is grabbing chocolate soy milk*
*woman clutches her child protectively as she passes by me*
*she lets her child go after she’s passed me*
When this happens to me, I really try to give parents the benefit of the doubt. A lot of parents are just plain bad at controlling their shitty kids - they let them run amok all over the store (or worse - the parking lot), and then I have to break hard to stop myself from rolling right into them.
But yeah, a big part of me also feels like these fools might think my genetic disorder is contagious. Ableist shits.
