Does anyone remember the story about the disabled village?

Postby adamrobbins2018 » Thu Aug 30, 2018 3:59 pm UTC

I heard it in school as a child, im pretty sure it was made up but it was about a community of mainly wheelchair users who decided they wanted to build buildings specifically for them. These buildings had low roofs and other things that made it hard for those minority who walked to avoid hitting their heads and such. And aparently the doctors gave the people wheely-braces for their backs so they could walk around bent backwards or something. It was a story to illustrate how disabilities are sometimes treated by society. If anyone knows what the hell im going on about, please do link me to it or repost it here.

You'd think it would be easier and more comfortable to just give them wheelchairs like everyone else.

Yes. And if wishes were horses, wishing wells would fill up very quickly with drowned horses.

What? A morality play is overwrought? No, no, I refuse to believe it.

I remember hearing this first time when i was 9. The idea of wheelchairs to explain the prejudice people associate with disability is well potrayed..
