I tried to watch a show without captions in a noisy area and I honestly wanted to cry.

Everyone should be able to show up & participate in the world.

Making it worse was that I just wanted to relax after a super-stressful week, as much as I could.

Just not think about pain for a few minutes.
They always make it about us wanting one more things or "well we have additional accomodations you can ask for."
But in public it greatly lessens the possibly violent incidents you're involved in by being inconspicuous.
Which will make you hate yourself but can also protect you from unnecessary contact with people who think you should be dead.
When you're with other vulnerable people it's also not fair to make the decision for them. Is your pride worth say, their execution by police?
I mean have you ever had a pissy waiter that you just want to bring you an extra glass of water?
You know that eye roll, that exasperated sigh?
Add a 50% chance the manager will side with them, triple the chance of an embarrassing scene and multiply the annoyance by 100.
Now you're a Black disabled woman asking for a fucking straw or where the GD ramp is.

Or that the captions be turned on.
Most of the time, fueled by the anger if being in pain, I wish a mother fucker WOULD tell me the elevator is for employees only.
Or my sister asks before I have the chance without even thinking about it because she's so often such a remarkable human being.
But sometimes I just want to be a regular person in the world.

Who doesn't have to ask the world around me to treat me like the full human being I am. #accessibility
It's worse when it happens at home.

Yes I turned up the TV to 30. I still can distinguish their conversation from your "background" conversation.
Even if they stfu it's often not enough. I need captions.
I have three apps on my phone that automatically caption audios I create to 80%.

No show in TV lacks the budget to supplement that with a human editor.
So anyway yeah #MySpoons are also needed for my earballs.

Captions are basic shit. Have captions you dickholes.
