Socialism Art Nature
They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable.Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World by hiring disabled people to pose as family…

i just want to say a few words on this …

first of all, this is obviously outrageous, but people should not be pointing their ire at the people with disabilities who are being used as tour guides here (as I’ve seen some commenters do). the real outrage is how shamelessly these rich bourgeois assholes are exploiting people with disabilities in order to accrue for themselves certain privileges.

These rich assholes won’t do jack shit to actually help dismantle the barriers preventing disabled people from being fully integrated into the economic, political, and social structures of our society; but they are absolutely happy to exploit the fact that disabled people are living in the margins by utilizing this so-called “black market Disney World tour service” in order to cut ahead of working class families waiting in lines for rides at the theme park.

I also think, however, that class does enter into it. Whoever owns this particular service — it seems to be a couple of people, at least one of whom is actually disabled — is clearly making a lot of money exploiting an accommodation designed for disabled people at Disney World. This is significant because it is designed to provide accommodation for families with a disabled child or adult.

Disabled families tend to be disproportionately poorer, less educated, and more oppressed, than families without disabilities. The fact that nondisabled rich families are exploiting this accommodation for their own benefit means that they are actually displacing families with actually disabled members. Kind of like how rich assholes park in parking spots set aside for people with disabilities because they may figure out someway to buy the appropriate parking documentation off of someone.


Obviously the culprits are the rich fucks exploiting this. But if anything, it should open up a conversation on the realities of disability in this country, the ways in which disabled people inhabit the margins of social institutions, and the way they are forced into this segregated position by the very kinds of rich bourgeois fucks who design our society — economically, politically, culturally — in such an exclusionary manner.
