I noticed that the founders (and my good friends) Ed Roberts and Judy Heumann were both dealing with sexual advances on occasion. Both were in electric wheelchairs and Ed could only live with his breather.
One day I asked a close friend in the disability community why people who were disabled were considered suitable objects of sexual flirtation?
The answer was, the title of this blog. There is a wounded bird syndrome among the general population. It applies to people in the disability community.
A person who is disabled is sometimes considered a wounded bird who needs care and attention. Sometimes this need for care and attention is treated as a sexual matter.
Of course disabled people are sexual beings. However, attention because they are in a state of nonconformity, seldom makes them feel comfortable being treated as wounded birds.
I only mention this because it strikes me as an unusual issue seldom noticed by others. If you find someone with a disability to be sexually attractive to you, re-examine your mental state.
