Bullying, would it happen if...

If relevant, would you say that you have been made the target of bullying, antisocial behaviour, and neighbour nuisance at any point in your life that you felt was would not happen if you did not have a disability?

This question relates to how the general public treat you, so not discrimination through public services.

Sadly, I have observed that some people view those with disability as unable to stand up for them selves in one way or another.

I wonder these issues might be reflected in this poll.

Thank you for participating, and if you are able I would love to hear your stories and any feedback.

Chockies 🍫.

    How right you are.
    Staff in shops will talk to the person im with not me.

    Idiots shout as if arthritis makes you deaf.

    Idiots make comments about not walking as fast as them as an old/mental thing.

    Idiots think we dont want to dress UP when we go out.

    Neighbours try to borrow evrrything and not give it back. 
    Disability hate crime is an everyday thing.  That wont stop till the police/law lock up yobs who treat disabled people as 3rd class

    Hi @Misscleo 👋🏻

    Thank you for sharing your experiences, I am so sorry that you have had to put up with ignorance like this.

    We’re all on this planet together !

    I hope that people will educate themselves that everyone has their own rights, values and choices, no matter what.
