Dating disability people

It is illegal to harass an applicant or employee because he has a disability, had a disability in the past, or is believed to have a physical or mental impairment that is not transitory (lasting or expected to last six months or less) and minor (even if he does not have such an impairment).

The ways in which individuals and groups are portrayed in popular media can have a profound effect on how they are viewed by society at large.

You want someone to care enough about your disability that they see it as part of you, but not so much that it is the only thing they see when they look at you. For example, the first time my boyfriend became enraged when he saw a car parked in a handicapped space without an appropriate license or placard…I felt heard, I felt seen, and finally, I felt like I didn’t have to face the injustices of the world alone. Since we are serious, it’s a thought that bounces around in my head pretty regularly. Do I think there are things he wishes we could do together that my disability prevents? The majority of those things have been centered around activities that require extended walking.

And since we are so open with each other, it’s also conversation we have often. However, about a year ago, when I invested in a mobility scooter, a new world opened for us. In my case, many of the ways my boyfriend supports me are physical in nature, but he’s also incredibly kind, loving, and caring too.

Even now, after my boyfriend and I have been dating for 3 and a half years, some of those questions still surface.

However, I will say it does take a special person to care in this way. Sometimes it still takes my breath away that I’ve found someone who cares enough about my disability that he has taken up the disability fight out of sheer love for me.

Although the law doesn't prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that aren't very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.

The initial dating with a disability post I wrote back in March was such a hit that I wanted to do a follow-up. No, I didn’t have a “I have CP” tattoo on my forehead, and I have never introduced myself to someone by saying, “Hi, my name’s Amelia, and I have CP.” However, I’ve always prided myself on being open with people.
