It breaks me that there's an entire degree plan which is structured around hurting my community

People devote their *lives* to harming us

If that doesn't break you, what would πŸ’”πŸ˜­
"oh, but so-and-so isn't like that! They *love* Autistic kids! They are *helping* them. You just don't understand bc you're not *really* Autistic. These are LOW functioning kids who can't even speak! So we must torture them until they ACT NORMAL!"

Some light (horrific) reading on ABA…

#MedTwitter it's time for a little story of how the MCAT fines Disabled students for being Disabled and gatekeeps medicine

Buckle up because this is pretty horrific 🧡/20
Accommodations are ways to make situations equitable (ideally) for Disabled applicants. For a exam like the MCAT this can mean extended time, private room, extra breaks, medical equipment in the room, breaks to eat/test blood sugar 2/20
Disabled students are allowed accommodations but only IF the organization accepts the applicant is Disabled & even then they get to dictate what accommodations the applicant will receive, regardless what their physicians might say is necessary 3/20
