  1. The BAT!

    So in your little world disabled people aren’t allowed any leisure activities and blind people don’t go to the bank. OK, you might need someone else to drive you, but so what? I resent all these unthinking assumptions.

    I’m what you only? in America would call legally blind, and I’ve gone ice-skating in my time, gone to the cinema, shared my photos with people and even learned how to wash behind my ears. Quite clever, some of these gimps, you know.

    Anyway why do you imagine everything only happens in America? You should get out more.
