Ableism is discrimination or prejudice against people with a disability.
We unfortunately live in a society that continually splits the disabled community into two camps: the inspirational superheroes, 'overcoming' their 'limitations' to climb mountains and win Paralympic medals, and The Rest: the ones seen as benefits scroungers, as the ones 'who don’t help themselves,' the ones who are a drain on society.
