Did you really just say that?

An excerpt from an article by a woman with a disability about how some react to her appearance.

When you have a physical difference, deformity or disability, it's as though your privacy is lost and people feel they have the right to intrude - stare, ask questions, offer advice and comment at their own liberty. It's akin to pregnant women having their tummies touched by strangers. Except it goes on longer than nine months.

You can read the rest here.
