If you ever feel like you’ve fucked up just remember that a whole TEAM of people designed this cash machine to be 15 inches off the ground and no one along the way thought ‘maybe this has a design flaw’
Yes. Here in the UK people call them cash machines, I know that’s an odd concept to get your head around but I think together we can do it
actually thats really handy for folk like me, just saying
yea, i just love how something that inconveniences abled people is considered a flaw, but something that is literally exclusive of disabled people, to the point where it renders us unable to do these things without help [if at all], is just considered the norm; there’s no pictures of ATM’s that are way too tall or made without braille, broken elevators, completely inaccessible entrances, &etc. floating around on this site, referring to them as flawed [or, lets call it what it really is: morally reprehensible], because abled people have the world so tailored to their needs, they don’t even see that shit - and when they do, they just shrug their shoulders and think, ”eh, oh well”.
i’d love to line up all the people who used that and ask them ”gee, isn’t it extremely hard - not to mention, humiliating - to use something that is so obviously made for everyone not like you, that they didn’t even care how it would affect you? now take the 15 seconds you spent at that machine and apply to the whole fucking world.”
